This is a beautiful reconstruction to its original after WWII bombing.

In early March there are few tourists so there is not much traffic. All of the store clerks were great and not pushy. Most of the shops are selling amber.

On Sunday afternoon, it was mostly sunny with a few light showers, and there were many families out walking with children in strollers, dogs, etc. All of the street mimes, balloon clowns, and musicians were out.

It is a representative Gdańsk Street, running through the Srodmiescie district. Its extension is the Long Market. In the 13th century it served as a merchant's tract. Dluga street and Long Market have always been a part of the city inhabited by the wealthiest. Tenement houses belonged to the most noble patricians, merchants and people holding high offices. Because of the solemn parades that took place here in the years 1457–1552 they were called the Royal Road . It was here that spacious quarters were rented to Polish kings, and on the occasion of the holidays of the royal family, roaring fireworks were made. The appearance of the street has changed over the centuries. In 1945, Dluga Street was completely destroyed, and today, after reconstruction, it is a tourist attraction. There is only pedestrian traffic on the street.There are fairytale tenement houses on this street, and one of the most beautiful is the Uphagen House ,Dluga 12, with its original design, and also Ferber House and Schumann's house.
On the tenement house at 61 Dluga Street there is a frieze from the 1950s, depicting the life of old Gdansk, townspeople feasting and discussing in the foreground, town houses outlines, a quay with barrels and ships on Motlawa. Its authors were Edward Roguszczak and Stanisław Mizerski.I can't imagine visiting Gdansk without going down Dluga street. Gorgeous.

The Dluga Street is one of the picturesque streets often seen in magazines representing Gdansk. Lined with colourful architecture from the Golden Gate to the Green Gate with Neptune's Fountain and the Main Town Hall located somewhere about the middle. The fact that 90% of Gdansk had to be rebuilt is lost on you when on this street as it is stunning to look at and be sure to look up! There is soo many interesting buildings with some great and beautiful statues and facades at the top that otherwise you will miss, much like the Golden House!

The street really comes to life at night as well with plenty of street performers and things going on to spend some time admiring! For a more personal experience be sure to get out early in the morning!

While in Gdańsk, it is impossible not to be on Długa Street. Well, it's a street on the royal route from the Golden Gate to the Green Gate and it's impossible to miss it. Beautifully rebuilt after being destroyed during World War II. It is worth being there in low season or when there are no crowds of tourists. Every experienced admirer knows what it means ;-) it's really worth being there! The gables of tenement houses, various architectural details are worth recommending!

The old German dutch inspirered buildings are every where in this part of the city. They are highly maintained and you can pretty much walk around taking in the atmosphere without being interrupted by facers or begars like other tourist places in Europe. I highly value that. There are small supermarked where you can get cheap food or go to the waterside and dine at more fashionable restaurants.
City has a good vipe. Will be comming back for a second trip.

Central street of Gdańsk. Dluga means Long and it is really long. It starts from the canal embankment and ends at the gates of the old town (here go to the cozy and pleasant restaurant "Rekawiczka" for drink :) ). Many historic buildings, shops and restaurants.
Crowded on weekends and evenings.

Beautiful street, beautiful architecture. Kind if reminded me of Rome somehow. The gold plates on some of the building and the lights reflecting makes beautiful photos. Worth a visit and within walking distance from the Hilton where I stayed.

Being in Gdansk without spending some time here is like to going to vegas without playing in a casino 😉
Here all kind of restaurants, cafés and bars are spread all over the area, not only the two sides of this main street, but also in all smaller ways connected to the main street. One pf it's ends is blocked with the grand gate from the 16th century and the other side is extending to a couple of hundred meters after crossing the river. Leave half a day at least in your visit planning to enjoy walking, having coffee or even dinner in one of the places here. Afternoon and evenings are the best times to visit. ENJOY IT

When people outside of Europe think about Europe as a concept, this is the image they see. Perfect buildings artistically constructed in beautiful uniformed and manicured streets. I love this street, it bring joy to my heart. Are there too many people? Yes . Are the businesses mostly for tourists and their eager wallets? Yes.
That's ok, just look around and feel the vibes.

This was my favourite area. The buildings are amazing and each one is different. It is a lovely setting with shops, cafes,bars and restaurants. The street is wide and when we were there it was not crowded which was perfect. There is a lot to see but the main thing is the beautiful architecture which is everywhere
