Architecture lovers will be left in awe by every corner of Gdańsk, but none compare to the Long Market. Safely tucked away between touristy street Ulica Długa and the stunning Green Gate, this market square is home to some of the most magnificent buildings in this Polish city.
Surrounded by some of Gdańsk’s most vibrant buildings, Artus Court will draw you in right away with its intricately designed façade and many sculptures that surround it. One of the most notable is Neptune’s Fountain, the imposing bronze statue built in the early 17th century.
Town halls of European cities are always a sight to behold, and the one in Gdańsk is no different. It’s one of the best examples of Gothic-Renaissance architecture you can find in this city, and it’s instantly recognizable thanks to its tall clock tower.
Located at the very end of the Long Market square, the Green Gate has been around since the 16th century and it’s one of the city’s top landmarks. It once served as the formal residence of Poland’s monarchs, but it now houses Gdańsk’s National Museum.
