Złota Brama (Golden Gate)

save place
Pick of the city gates?
The Złota Brama is one of the many city gates leading into "old" Gdańsk although, built in 1614 some 60-70m beyond the larger & more robust Brama Wyzynna (Upland Gate), it never functioned as a first line of defence. Which probably explains why it is so pretty ;)

Situated at the top of Ulica Długa (Long Street) and typically surrounded by gaping tour groups, it's virtually impossible to miss. The 8 figures which sit atop the gate, each representing a different virtue to be exercised by the city's inhabitants, are a particularly nice touch.
