The Gems of Ancient Gdansk and The Solidarity Movement History


During this tour you can visit the place where in 1980 almost 17. 000 courageous striking people under the leadership of the Peace Noble Prize Winner Lech Walesa blew the wind of uncertainty through the communism regime.

We will get to the Fallen Shipyard Workers Monument and cross the historical shipyard Gate nr 2. In the vicinity of huge cranes, an awesome modern architecture gem hosts the European Centre of Solidarity. The Council of Europe Museum Prize Winner and. . . . the cherry on top, literally on the top of the building.
If you are lucky you will meet Lech Walesa in the hall as in the building today there is his office.

The second part covers the heart of ancient Gdansk. I will take you for the journey in time. The history of Hanseatic City Gdansk is full of significant events and colourful characters.
Amazing buildings, the heritage influenced by different European comers, amber workshops. variety of cafes and restaurants create unforgettable memories.
