Set off on a night cruise from the Gdansk Shipyard
Start your night tour from the Galar Marina, which is located right next to the Gdansk Shipyard. This historic place used to be a workplace for several thousand people and was closed to tourists for over 170 years. The Gdańsk Shipyard was opened on the side of the former German dockyards after 1945. It was here that NSZZ “Solidarność” operated – a trade union that led to the fall of communism in the Polish country. Currently, the Gdańsk Shipyard is not only a place of building and repairing ships, but also a symbol of the fight for freedom, democracy and workers’ rights in Poland. All this is due to the events that took place there in the 1970s and 1980s – our guide will tell you more about it during the cruise.
