What to expect

Explore Gdansk's shipyard and most impressive European Solidarity Centre area while learning the history of Communism in Poland with a private guide.

Start your walking tour in Gdansk Shipyard which was once the workplace place for thousands of people. Listen to stories about the communist era in Poland and discover how their determination led to the collapse of totalitarian systems in Europe. Learn about how Lech Walesa, the worker from the shipyard, became the leader of the first free trade union Solidarity and later the first democratically-elected Polish president in post-WWII history.

See the Three Crosses Monument, the popular monument to the shipyard workers which shows how turbulent and dramatic the history of modern Europe was after 1945. Then, walk through the historic Main Gate with 20 postulates of workers before continuing on to the old shipyard buildings. Stop at Sala BHP, the Shipyard Museum, where the agreement with the communists was signed.

Enter the European Solidarity Centre using your skip-the-line ticket included in the tour. Explore one of the newest, interactive and most interesting museums in Gdansk. Your guide will join you inside and help you understand the historical context surrounding the incident that took place in the Gdansk shipyard.

End your tour with a shot of vodka in a Polish restaurant that looks the same as it did in PRL-times.
