Gdańsk

Upland Gate

  Wały Jagiellońskie 2A, Gdańsk ,   Old Town         25 Nov 2019
This 16th-century gate, the main entrance into the Old Town, was the original starting point for The Royal Way. It was here that the Polish king was welcomed and given the keys to the city. The gate was originally surrounded by a 50m moat and was named for its upland location above the water level. The metal pulleys used for raising and lowering the drawbridges are still visible beneath the coats of arms of Poland, Prussia and Gdańsk. The gate has undergone major renovation work in recent years and now houses a tourist information point.
