“The new symbol of Gdansk”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012

This monument honours the persons fallen during the uprising of the dockers which finally led to the fall of the communist regime in Poland and Eastern Europe. It is a very symbolic place near the entrance of the dockyards and hotel Gryf.

“worth seeing from distance”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2011

In fact you are able to see it from almost every corner of Gdańsk downtown. It’s made from stainless steel and consists of three crosses with anchors on top. This is very tall construction, you wouldn’t be able to see more standing under it. Access is free. It’s roughly 500 m from Gdańsk main railway station, near former shipyard’s Gate no 2. On the road from the station, you pass Solidarity Museum with some armored personal carrier from strikes era displayed on the street. You wouldn’t be able to enter former shipyard area, however if you are interested in seeing former Walesa work place I suggest to go about 1 km further along the street with tramway rails on it to gate no 4 where is the access.
