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

Three Crosses Monument, also known as the Monument to the Fallen Shipyard Workers, is a sculpture in Gdansk commemorating the 45 people killed in 1970 while protesting against the communist regime. 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.

Powerfull monument. You'll learn more about the monument if you visit the European Center of solidarity right at the back of the monument.

A striking and poignant monument to those killed in the solidarity movement that began at Gdansk's shipyard. It's right outside the European Centre of Solidarity so put aside 15mins to wander around outside before or after going in.

The monument is outside the Solidarity Museum and is worh taking time to visit, before going into the museum. The memorials are very poignant, especially when you note that some of the victims were only young boys (15 & 16 year old).The museum gives an insight to the background behind the brutality the regime put down the strikes.

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
