If you visit Gdansk I urge you to visit this monument and the nearby Solidarity Centre. There is so much history here and so much to be learned. Please visit if you have a chance.

There will be a lot of people who don't know of the Gdansk Shipworkers Strike. This Strike led to the downfall of Russian Domination of Poland. The Museum is superb and is well worth spending as much time as you can afford to learn all about this most notable point in history.

I remember watching this on the news and to visit the actual sight sent shivers down my spine. The happenings here have shaped European history and given freedom to so many.

beautifully poignant space. Effectively a collection of monuments and statues to commemorate the various struggles of the shipyard workers and people of Gdansk throughout their occupation from the second world war. The main entrance is an actual entrance to the shipyards and is now the gateway to the Solidarity museum (a must see in itself!!)

It is fitting to visit this monument to pay tribute to and remember the shipyard workers who were victims in December of 1970. An anchor is suspended on each of the three crosses. The lower half of the monument has scenes from the shipyard worker's lives. A quotation from Psalm 29 is on the monument and also a part of... More

The site now hosts a permanent exhibition and European solidarity space... More
