Mill Gate

Brama Młyńska (Mill Gate, also called "Harbor Gate" and "Water Gate") is an old city gate of Stargard Szczeciński, in Poland, which functioned also as a watergate. In medieval times the watch lowered a portcullis into the river for the night, which secured Stargard harbour, situated behind the fortification (an exception in this area), from intruders. Both towers have the so-called Stargard blend motive (the same as in St. Mary's church). Today the Mill Gate is the seat of Stargard's Society of Fine Art Lovers.
