beautifully poignant space. Effectively a collection of monuments and statues to commemorate the various struggles of the shipyard workers and people of Gdansk throughout their occupation from the second world war. The main entrance is an actual entrance to the shipyards and is now the gateway to the Solidarity museum (a must see in itself!!)

The shipyard no longer works, but its aura is still redolent of the Gdansk shipyard workers strike of the early 1970's, in which many workers were killed by Jaruzelski's militia, but who eventually triumphed by founding the Solidarity movement, one which propelled Lech Walesa not the premiership of Poland. The site now hosts a permanent exhibition and European solidarity space... More

This was totally off my radar screen in Gdansk. My tour guide took me here as a surprise. Once I realized where I was, I was awestruck. My tour guide told me that Solidarity was a gift to the Polish People. I corrected her by telling her that Solidarity was a gift to the world since it was the beginning... More

Well worth a visit if you are interested in history and also to take a moment to remember the fallen shipyard workers. The monument is impressive in its size, and theres also some good details to be seen if you walk up close to it. A must visit when in Gdansk.
