A quick stop here is a way to help remember those brave ship workers who fought for their freedoms and helped to crack the Soviet stranglehold. 15 minutes to pay respect and honor the modern day heroes is not too much to ask. A worthwhile short stop.

I went to see the monument of threes crosses and then went to the museum for the Solidarity movement, actually just by accident. Its really a great museum and well done, which tells a very important part of modern polish history and some early fault lines of the Warsaw pact region and era. Its not well advertised, but just go... More

We made the short walk from the Gdansk train station to see the famous and important landmark. It is a simple but imposing monument that gives rise to the important period in history that led to a change in Poland and Europe. We also visited the adjacent European Center of Solidarity Movement and would highly recommend that you make this... More

Historic place of Gdansk Shipyard 1980 strike which lead to true freedom of Poland. There is also Solidarity Movement museum (haven't been there yet so can't recommend or criticise). The Three Crosses Monument is definitely worth seeing. Don't forget to return also at night as it's beautifully lit and will take your breath away providing unforgettable memory!

The monument is very impressive, esp. if you combine it with a visit to the museum. I've learned so much thanks to the engaging exhibits and audiotour. Lots of interactive stuff to do and see! Don't forget to go to the sixth floor for a great view of the working shipyard, city and monument. When we were there there also... More

The 42-metre, 139-tonne steel monument stands on the spot where the first three victims were killed. It consists of three crosses holding up three large anchors. The lower part... More

We were told the story of the Solidarity movement here and agreed that it was a fitting monument to those who lost their lives. At 100 ft tall it cannot be missed.
