This is beautiful. 3 crosses dedicated to the workers who died in a standoff with the communist government in 1970. It is right beside the Solidarity museum. Nice way to spend a half hour before or after visiting the museum. An important part of history and well worth taking a few photos or exploring. Nothing is in English but you... More

This is a really impressive piece of history of Gdansk, Poland, Eurppe and the world. And it simply needs to combined with a visit to the ESC to really understand the events that led to this monument.

My husband and I walked to this monument and I found this monument moving and classy. Looking at the static exhibits around the monument struck me by learning when and how the revolution took place in that spot especially when I have only learned about this movement from textbooks. This is an important part of Gdansk history that should be... More

This is a great place to remember the activities that occurred her in the early 80's. The statue at night is very impressive.

The monument to the fallen shipyard Workers, is near the Museum of Solidarity, so it cannot be missed. The work that went to create the three crosses by the dockyard workers was a great sacrifice, and well appreciated by all.

This cross is near the entrance to the docks and the Museum of Solidarity, in fact it can be seen from far. The area round it is a place where you end up speechless.

This monument to the shipyard strikers from the 70s was impressive and right by the old shipyard gates. Its well worth going through the gates to the BHP hall where the workers and Lech Walesa met. It houses an excellent photo exhibition about the Solidarnosc struggle and the hall itself is laid out as if at a meeting or election.... More

Not only Three Crosses looks monumental, but they also strictly refer to polish history. If you have ever heard about "Solidarność" you can't just miss this place.

This impressive monument is near the entrance to the shipyard gates and a very short walk from the present Roads to Freedom exhibit. It was amazing to stand in the square near where Lech Walensa stood and to really understand and appreciate the struggles and sacrifices made by the Polish people to gain their freedom. The stop at the monument... More

As well as seeing this monument which is moving on its own don't forget to visit the BHP hall just inside the gate to the ship yard. This was the original conference hall of the ship and the current exhibition is well worth seeing. It shows a chronological pictorial timescale of the events in this town history which influenced so... More
