Lonely Planet review for Historical Museum of Gdańsk
Enter the building by twin flights of balustraded stairs and go through an ornate Baroque doorway (1766), which is topped by the city’s coat of arms guarded by two lions that, unusually, are both looking toward the Golden Gate, supposedly awaiting the arrival of the king. The doorway was the final addition to the external decoration of the building.
