History of Gdansk

A bit outside the center but not much (walking-distance). The entrance of the old port and the statue is worth a quick visit.

We stopped here long enough to take some photos and to hear the back story for these three crosses. I remember reading about these three workers and what they stood for so seeing the memorial was a reminder of what the Solidarity movement was all about. I am glad that there was time to see and remember what it was... More

To see the 3 crosses and especially the "Stocznia Gdansk" sign and gate was moving, as this is where communism cracked first in Europe in the 1980s. I believe this place is more important than the Berlin Wall, which was the end point. You must also see the Solidarity Centre that is near by. Take your time and savour the... More

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
