When the Polish kings arrived in Gdansk, they entered the city by the Royal Route. It was the most representative part of the city.
There were the houses of the richest citizens of Gdansk along Długa Street. Among the most important families in Gdańsk’s history were: The Uphagen, Ferber, and Czirenberg Families. In the very heart of Gdansk – in Długi Targ (Long Market) – the Main City Hall is located – it was the seat of the municipal government, the Artus Court, the Neptun Fountain and the Royal Houses.
The Water Gates guarded access to the city at the wharf – among them the Harbour Crane is situated. We will pass close to the Granary Island and the Lead Island, the former port. We pass the Mariacka Gate and we can admire the most beautiful street – Mariacka (ST. Mary’s Street) with porches, slabs and the guffers’ endings, and numerous amber shops.
