Tour Highlights

Gdańsk Shipyard – Gate Nr. 2:

The tour begins at the iconic Gdańsk Shipyard, where Solidarity was born. Gate Nr. 2 holds immense historical significance, as it was here that the striking shipyard workers first demanded their rights and formed the independent trade union.

Solidarity Square:

A short walk from the shipyard leads visitors to Solidarity Square, a symbolic gathering place that witnessed numerous rallies and protests during the movement's early years. This vibrant public space serves as a testament to the determination and unity of the workers.

Monument to the Fallen Shipyard Workers of 1970:

Erected in memory of the shipyard workers who lost their lives during the protests of 1970, this monument stands as a powerful reminder of the sacrifices made in the struggle for workers' rights. It serves as a poignant symbol of Solidarity's origins and the movement's unwavering commitment.

European Solidarity Centre:

A visit to the European Solidarity Centre provides visitors with an in-depth understanding of Solidarity's history and its impact on Poland and Europe as a whole. Through interactive exhibits, photographs, and documents, the center tells the story of the movement's triumphs, challenges, and ongoing relevance.

Pieces of Berlin Wall and Gdańsk Shipyard Wall:

As a nod to the international resonance of the Solidarity movement, the tour includes a stop at the remnants of the Berlin Wall and the Gdańsk Shipyard Wall. These fragments serve as reminders of the interconnectedness of struggles for freedom and democracy across different regions.

NSZZ Solidarity Headquarters:

The tour takes participants to the headquarters of NSZZ Solidarity, the labor union that emerged from the movement. This building witnessed crucial discussions, planning, and negotiations during Solidarity's clandestine years and remains a testament to the resilience and perseverance of its members.

Church of St. Brygida:

The final stop on the Solidarity Tour is the Church of St. Brygida, a place of solace and refuge for the movement's leaders during the years of political repression. The church played a significant role in providing support and fostering the spirit of Solidarity, even in the darkest of times.

Conclusion

The Solidarity Tour offers a unique opportunity to delve into the rich history of the Solidarity movement, exploring its origins, achievements, and ongoing legacy. From the historic Gdańsk Shipyard to the European Solidarity Centre and other key landmarks, visitors gain a comprehensive understanding of the struggles and triumphs of this remarkable labor union.

By walking in the footsteps of the shipyard workers and Solidarity's leaders, participants can truly appreciate the significance of their fight for workers' rights, freedom, and democracy. The tour serves as a powerful reminder that solidarity knows no borders and that ordinary people can create extraordinary change when they unite in pursuit of a just cause.
