Gdańsk’s former Lenin Shipyard is a key fragment of 20th-century European history. It was here that the first major cracks in Eastern Europe’s communist wall appeared when discontent with the regime boiled over into strikes and dissent, brutally stamped out by armed force in 1970. A decade later an electrician named Lech Wałęsa emerged to rouse crowds of strikers here, leading to the formation of the Solidarity movement and ultimately to democracy for Poland and most of the Eastern bloc.<
Once again leaving the sterile touristic bits to others I had a mooch around said shipyards, some of the units were accessible; some were not. My visit was a Saturday afternoon so the area was virtually deserted
Enjoy the visit
I have no idea!
Loving the signage, and artefacts
