At the end of Długi Targ, you'll find the Green Gate (Zielona Brama), with the picturesque quayside (Długie Pobrzeże) stretching beyond it and Granary Island (Wyspa Spichrzów) opposite the quayside. The Central Maritime Museum (Centralne Muzeum Morskie) is located on the quay with Ołowianka island facing it (during summertime the Baltic Philharmonic gives concerts there).
During your walk along the quayside, you will pass Gdańsk Harbor (Przystań). You can come back here in a while when you feel like taking a boat trip to Sopot, Gdynia or Hel. But don't just look at the ships on your right, or else you will miss another great monument on your left - the Crane (Żuraw). And of course - St. Mary's Gate (Brama Mariacka) which reveals a street of the same name, considered to be one of the most beautiful in Europe and leading to Poland's biggest church, St. Mary's Church(Bazylika Mariacka). While you're around, you mustn't miss the Archeological Museum (Muzeum Archeologiczne), the most important archeological institution in northern Poland, with its composed of 27 thousand archaeological, ethnographical, numismatic and natural exhibits. The museum also offers a quick, impressive tour of its tower, from which you can enjoy a fine panorama of Gdańsk.
