Gdańsk has been a very important cultural and commercial centre for centuries. The 17th century was a golden age for this city - it became one of the largest and richest European cities. Merchants, sailors, people of science and art from all over Europe came here. The most magnificent buildings were built then, some of which can still be admired today. Trade took place in a port built up with granaries on both sides of the Vistula and Motlawa river embankments. It happened that on the roadstead in the Gulf of Gdansk and along the Vistula and Motlawa rivers up to the present Green Gate 400 sailing ships were waiting, especially during the Dominican Fair. The harbour master's office was located in the Green Gate, closing Długi Targ Street from the port side. Stalls stood here, fairs were held here and residents from the adjacent areas sold their products.
Today, this part of Gdańsk is a tourist destination. Numerous ships and boats mooring on the Motlawa River offer trips both along the quay and to the Hel Peninsula. The main event of the season is the Dominican Fair, continued in the pattern of old times, where numerous vendors from all over Poland offer their products.
