There are a lot of stone lions put on facades of Gdansk houses and offices. Usually the two lions keep the coat of arms of Gdansk (a crown + two crosses). Hmm... to be honest these stone animals look a bit different than real lions, right? Look at thick and very long tails and strange, long hair on a head of the lions.
