This monument is located just outside the famous gate number 2 of the old Lenin Shipyard (and now home to the European Solidarity Centre). Only 10mins from city centre. This monument commemorates the events when 45 people were killed during riots against the communist regime in 1970. It specifically remembers the first three folk who were killed on that very...

The tall concrete crosses serve as a memorial to slain workers and it is a touching scene. It is adjacent to the beautiful Solidarity Museum. It's also a valuable landmark for navigating that part of the city.

A sombre and fitting monument beside the European Solidarity Centre and the gates to the former Lenin Shipyards. Visitors to the city should visit here to try to understand the effects of Polish history on European history, and where we are in the world today.

Situated in the new town, the monument outside the Solidarity Centre is a quite a sombre sight. To really appreciate the momument and what it stands for, I'd recommend a visit inside the Solidarity Centre.

Next to the solidarity center which is fab so do both at the same time. You'll be impressed by the size of it; get some nice snaps and be able to pay your respects. It's free and takes around 15 mins.

This was one of our favorite places to visit in Gdansk. As you approach, you will not be in awe of its beauty, but don't be dissuade by its nondescript exterior. As you approach, you may not even realize that you have arrived. It can be a bit tricky to even find the entrance - but don't give up. Once... More

And visit also the Solidarity Museum. These are remarkable landmarks in the history of Gdansk, and you should not miss them. The monument is impressive, built on Soviet style, and has an important meaning for the people in Gdansk.

It was humbling standing on the spot where the social revolt against the Soviet regime started. It's an interesting 15 min walk from old town along a busy road passing Soviet-style building bristling with antennas and modern-day shopping centers. I was especially awed by the huge construction cranes standing in the shipyard.

This is not the most attractive monument from a distance, but I was glad we strolled down to see it, as it is much better close up. The new centre building behind it is also well worth a look if you are interested in architecture, it is stunning in the late afternoon sun with its rusty steel cladding. I then... More
