Golden Gate, Gdansk

Source: Wikipedia
The Golden Gate in Gdańsk,  Poland, is one of the most notable tourist attractions of the city.

It was created in 1612–14 in place of a 13th-century gothic gate, the Brama Długouliczna (Long Street Gate). It is located at one end of Long Lane, where, together with Brama Wyżynna  (High Gate) and Wieża Więzienna (Prison Tower), it forms a part of the old city fortifications.

It was designed by architect Abraham van den Blocke and was built by Jan Strakowski. The architectural style of the gate is Dutch mannerism. Next to it is the late-gothic building of the Brotherhood of St.George.
