European Solidarity Centre
This great hulking building clad in ochre-rusting metal sheets at the entranceway to the famous Gdansk Shipyards is a veritable must-visit museum for any history buffs. Dedicated to chronicling and honouring the plight of the workers and unionists of the Polish Solidarity movement, its exhibits showcase the dedication to freedom and democracy that first sent political tremors rumbling through eastern Europe in the 1980s, eventually culminating with the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989. There are films and photography, along with illuminating documents that were once classified by the Soviet regime.
