This monument is a moving reminder of those who fought so hard for their freedom from an archaic and controlling regime. I remember these events, as depicted on Western tv, and I'm so glad to see how well they've been commemorated. A definite 'must see' and, together with the Solidarity museum, this corner of Gdansk is a living history lesson... More

Historic corner of the city. If this county is like this a lot is to be recognized to this place and to the efforts workers made for it. Postcommunist Poland is a modern country ready to fly, come here and find out why!

Its aesthetic value isn't that great but it is a powerful and moving reminder of the beginning of Poland's struggle for freedom.

The three crosses is a thing to visit when you visit the solidarity museum as its right outside. You can stand in the footprints left by pope John Paul when he visited there

This monument is must outside the European Solidarity Center. A unique monument which is symbolic of the Polish uprising which ended in freedom for the Poles.

Three huge crosses, 36 tons and 42 meters each, with 2 tons anchor on the top. This monument commemorates victims of Polish December 1970.

Three Cross Monument is very important for Polish. The monument reminds dark part of polish modern history. Three Cross is located next to the Solidarity Movement Museum that is considered to be a great attraction for tourist.

Stocznia Gdańska (Gdansk's Shipyard) is a cultural place not to be skipped. The whole process of labor rights recognition is exhaustively documented within the must-see brand-new avant-garde Europejskiej Centrum Solidarności (entrance is charged) and the lower flat building (free of charge) in its backyard. The latter illustrates, by the means of photos, billboards and replica Solidarnosci documents, the whole story... More

Included in this monument area is a wonderful museum about the Solidarity movement and what took place at the Lenin Shipyard. The architecture resembles the inside of the ships that were manufactured at the Shipyard. The museum chronicles in detail how these workers fought for their freedom and started the fall of Communism. This museum should be number one on... More

This is a must-see place for anyone who lived through the fall of the Berlin Wall and the break-up of the Iron Curtain. It is not just Lech Walesa who is celebrated here, but all of the many martyrs. Try to see the monument in the wall outside No. 1 Shipyard, which I am sure must get missed a lot.
