The Long Market in the Main Town of Gdansk

The Long Market (Długi Targ) in Gdansk is part of the Royal Way which begins at the Golden Gate and ends with the Green Gate. Like in the Long Street (Ulica Długa), you can find here lots of colorful and important buildings. It also has many small tourist stalls and restaurants.

One of the eyecatchers here is the Neptune Fountain from the beginning of the 17th century. It was designed by Abraham van den Blocke and symbolizes the strong connection between Gdansk and the sea.

Another important landmark at the Long Market is Artus Court (Dwór Artusa). This house is located behind the Neptune Fountain and was originally built around 1350. The impressive facade was also created by Abraham van den Blocke between 1616-1618. Artus Court served as a meeting place for rich merchants and patriciates and was a centre of social life. It now is part of Gdansk History Museum.

Location: Długi Targ, Gdańsk, Poland.
