Useful information about Gdansk
European Solidarity Centre
Gdansk’s role in taking Poland away from its Communist rule is celebrated today at the European Solidarity Centre, which is full of information and exhibits about the pivotal period in the 1970s and 80s when a country found a new identity and purpose.
Much of Gdansk’s historical architecture was destroyed as various factions fought over it during the early 20th century. However, it was rebuilt in a way that has preserved the city’s character, which is best seen in this former market square that acts as a focal point for tourists to gather.
St Mary’s Church
One building that survived the fighting was this church, which has been there in various forms since 1343 and is the largest brick church in the world.
National Maritime Museum
The sea has played a large part in Gdansk’s history, so it’s fitting that there is a museum to celebrate its rich maritime legacy, which is full of interesting artifacts and stories.

Eventually this section of road will also be part of the A6 Expressway, which is still under construction to run from Gdansk to Szczecin on the German border.
The A1 autostrada runs from Gdansk all the way down to Gorzyczki on the Czech border, and connects the city with several major cities on the way, including Lodz.
