    A beautiful building on the Dlugi Targ Square in Gdansk. One of the most beautiful Gdansk tenement houses, with impressive interiors.It was a place of meetings and feasts of patricians and wealthy middle class. They were members of brotherhoods sitting on separate benches. The benches were chosen according to their origin, profession or preferences. The representative seat referred to the ethos of knighthood for which King Arthur was a model of virtues and the round table at which he sat with his companions is a symbol of equality and brotherhood. Impressive Gdansk lions placed on the facade and holding the coat of arms of the city patronized Gdansk residents. The building houses a museum, worth visiting, if only because of the beautiful collection of Gdansk furniture and the amazing tiled stove, richly decorated with images of famous Gdansk residents. Total quantity of tiles in this stove is 520 pieces. It is Europe's largest, 11-meter tiled stove. Interesting exhibits and interiors, even though the museum is small to see. The beautiful are also ship models. The location at the Dlugi Targ Square makes it impossible to overlook it. I would recommend.

    Brama Wyzynna gate house is also known as the Upland gate. It is beautiful and is near the railway station. It is clear that this has been renovated and a tourist information centre is based in it.

    This tenement house is a historic tenement house located by the Royal Road in Gdansk. It is sometimes called the home of Speymann or Steffens. Built by Mayor Jan Speyman and recognized as the most magnificent tenement at the Royal Road. The tenement was erected in 1609-1618, according to the design of the architect Abraham van den Blocke. The facade has gilded stone carvings. On the front wall there are reliefs with battle scenes and figures of rulers, including Zygmunt III Waza and Wladyslaw Jagiello. In the central part of the facade there are coats of arms used by Speymann.The facade is maintained in the Flemish mannerism style. This tenement house several times was part of the premises of the residence of Zygmunt III Waza during his stay in Gdansk. It was destroyed in 1945. It was reconstructed on the basis of the remains of the facade in the form of a narrow wall with a height of three floors. Above the entrance there is a sculpture of Mercy with the Latin sentence "Love the virtue, it will make you happy, you will persecute her, it will overthrow you. "  You must see this.

    The Gothic St Mary’s Gate is a representative example of the Gdańsk town gate. The coats of arms that have been preserved on the façade are valuable iconographic examples of the Pomeranian heraldry.

    Another huge tower that you can't help but see when walking round Gdansk. Only enjoyed from the outside, but very grand and ornate.

    The building was erected in the style of Gdansk Neo-Renaissance. It was built in 1898–1901. The building was erected on a special foundation, the use of which allowed it to be erected in the place of the filled moat. The interior of the town hall was richly decorated. The building was entered into the register of monuments on April 17, 1972. Currently it is the seat of the Gdańsk City Council, and also has a representative function, weddings are given here.

    One of the many Gdansk's gate, this one looks sturdy and leads to the city centre or to thw riverside (depending which way ate you coming from). Quite different from the more local gates, definitely worth seeing!

    On the opposite side of the road to the mill and is built over the waterway. Unfortunately there is no information on or near it to explain its history or function, but its old. Walked past it a few times and wondered.

    Another church building which I just happened to pass by on my wanderings. Another lovely building in the touristy area, though not worth a special trip.

    Dotted around the old town. This one has a photography business in it so is not open to the public. It is located next to the farmer's market.

    Brama Stagiewna are the remaining parts of the defensive walls and gate remaining from the fortifications built between 1517 _ 1519.
    Known as the mammon stables ,the towers have been destroyed twice ,in the siege of 1813 and in the ferocious Battle of Gdansk in 1945.
    Rebuilt post war ,now home to a co operative of Polish artists.
    We were heading to some of the great bars near this tower and the tower looked amazing especially at night and made for some great photographic opportunities.
    Easy to find on the Milk Bank of Granary Island,it's found on Stagiewna.
    Well worth checking out.
