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

The monument at the gate of the former Lenin Shipyard is just the beginning of what will be a massive museum of Solidarity that will open next year or so. The museum looks like it will resemble a ship under construction, sided with steel plates rusting in the weather. There is a small museum on the premises, with photos and... More

Well worth the short walk out of the town centre to experience the birthplace of Solidarity. Much of what happened here has moulded the future Poland. I remember the news and seeing the peoples struggle for freedom and democracy. This is a fitting and moving monument and take time to read what happened. Look out for Pope John Paul's footprints...

An unforgettable place for all those who remember the bravery of the people who worked here and started "the road to freedom". Lech Walesa and all the others, these great steel crosses are really a monument they deserve. I still recall television showing us their fight against Communism...... We should never forget what the word "solidarity" really stands for, a... More
