Classical Gdańsk

If it is your first visit to Gdańsk make sure you see a few flagship places, symbols of the city. If you have been living here for years you have probably passed them on your way home many times. Perhaps it is worthwhile to stop and see them afresh? Every reason is good to have a walk to the Main Town and the Old Town and rediscover the hidden gems of architecture; this is why we invite you for a journey through classical Gdańsk.

The Renaissance Green Gate was constructed as a royal residence in 1564-1568. It replaced the modest Gothic structure of the Kogi Gate. In spite of its original purpose, the gate has never hosted the Polish royalty. A large hall on the upper floor of the building used to play the role of a place for meetings, feasts and events for the people of Gdańsk. Only the external walls survived the WWII. The building was reconstructed and it currently is a branch of the National Museum presenting exhibitions of modern and ancient arts..
