Dluga (the Long Street) is Gdansk's main pedestrian broadwalk, crossing the Main Town and, together with the Long Market (Dlugi Targ) forming a so-called Royal Way, from the Upland Gate to the Green Gate and the Motlawa quays. The whole route is commonly referred to as "Dluga". Dluga proper begins at the Golden Gate, the most ornate of the Gdansk gates, and is lined along its whole stretch with the typical Gdansk merchant houses, Dutch-influenced narrow and tall town houses topped with decorative gables and adorned with coats of arms, allegorical sculptures, bas-reliefs and frescoes. The best merchant houses on Dluga include Ferber house, Schuman house, Uphagen house (now a museum) and Lion's Castle (Lwi Zamek). Dluga widens into the Dlugi Targ (Long Market), the heart of Gdansk and the location of its most important secular buildings. The Main Town Hall, the Artus Court and the landmark Neptune fountain are all on the Long Market.
The National Museum in Gdansk is located in what was the former Franciscan monastery, built in the late Gothic style in the first haft of the XV century. It now houses a variety of old-art collections: gold-smithing, medieval art of Pomerania, Gdansk painting from 16th to 20th century, 17th century Flemish and Dutch painting, Polish painting from 19th and 20th century, artistic ceramic and 18th century furniture. The pearl of the collection is "Last Judgement" by Hans Memling, a 15th century masterpiece triptych (a replica of which is located in the St Marys Basilica).
