The Gothic St Mary’s Gate is a representative example of the Gdańsk town gate.
History
The St Mary’s Gate was built in the second half of the 15th century (first mentioned in 1484). As early as in the 16th century, it ceased to serve a defensive function and was earmarked for housing. In the spring of 1945, the gate was severely damaged. In 1959-1960, the structure was rebuilt using the Gothic demolition bricks. As early as before the reconstruction, in 1954, it was decided to create a functional combination of the interior of the gate building with the Naturalists’ House for museum purposes (Archaeological Museum). In 2006, the façades underwent renovation.
Description: The gate is situated at the eastern end of Mariacka Street, parallel to the line of the Motława waterfront, partly in a densely built-up area. The structure was designed in the Late Gothic style, with the body and façades inspired by the Flamish architecture (Ghent Gate and St Christopher’s Gate in Bruges).

Green Gate
Muzeum Narodowe w Gdańsku / Oddział Zielona Brama
The Green Gate in Gdańsk, Poland, is one of the city's most notable tourist attractions. It is situated between Long Market (Długi Targ) and the River Motława. With the Golden Gate and the Highland Gate, the Green Gate spans the Long Market and Long Street, together comprising the Royal Route. The Green Gate was clearly inspired by the Antwerp City Hall. It was built 1568-71 as the formal residence of Poland's monarchs. It is a masterpiece by Regnier (or Reiner van Amsterdam), an Amsterdam architect, and reflects Flemish architectural influence in Gdańsk. Hans Kramer from Dresden was responsible for the construction plans.
Today the Green Gate houses the National Museum in Gdańsk. Exhibitions, meetings, conferences and shows are held here. The Gdańsk office of former Polish President Lech Wałęsa is located in one of the rooms.

Long Pobrzeże - a water promenade in Gdańsk in the Main Town, stretching along the western bank of the Motława River. Along the street, there are water gates that are characteristic of Gdańsk architecture . The street was once called the Long Bridge.
The first mentions of a marina on this bank of Motława date back to the 14th century. For centuries, in the place of today's promenade, there were wooden platforms of different heights, not connected to each other, for unloading and unloading ships. In the 17th century, they were combined into one bridge. After World War II, the street was rebuilt from concrete elements and lined with polished marble.
