The Gothic defensive walls of the Main Town
The Gothic defensive walls of the Main Town together with the accompanying fortified towers and gates form the fortification system of Gdańsk that was built over the centuries.
Another water gate is the St. John's Gate, which was built in the middle of the 15th century. The building was modified several times, and at the beginning of the 19th century it was shaped in the style of classical architecture. The gate was completely destroyed in 1945 - due to a lack of iconography determining its original shape – the gate was rebuilt with the preservation of classicisal elements.
