Facts about Gdańsk

A city with history

Gdańsk is the city of freedom that changed the course of European history. In August 1980, in the Gdańsk Shipyard, Lech Wałęsa, a great social movement of solidarity and unity was born. The events gave a huge boost to freedom movements around the world.

Contemporary Gdańsk is a modern European metropolis, a strong knowledge-based economy, a dynamically developing center of culture, science, entertainment, and sport, an attractive tourist destination, and the World Capital of Amber.
