The 20th-century Free City of Gdansk was not a city of freedom… at least not for everyone.

Between WWI and WWII, a small semi-independent city-state (the Free City of Danzig) was the nest of the Nazi movement. From the early ’30s till the end of WWII the city of Gdańsk witnessed countless marches of SS and SA troops, fluttering swastikas, acts of violence and terror against local Jews and Poles, and finally death of all: Jews, Poles, Germans and … the city itself.

Come to our tour to hear the story of what was one of the cradles of the Nazi movement. Get to know the story of the Jewish and Polish minorities of Gdańsk. Find out about the tragedy four times larger than the one of Titanic. Learn about both glorious and shameful moments of wartime Gdańsk, the city where it all started.

During the tour you will see:

  • Uplands’ Gate

  • Shakespeare’s Theatre

  • Intelligence Agency

  • Main Train Station

  • Gradowa Hill

  • and much more!

Would definitely recommend doing this tour. Our guide Marcin knew absolutely everything about the history of his town especially around WW2. He provided a great insight into the history of Poland and the effect of the Nazi’s.

The tour last around 2 hours but didn’t involve more than 2 km walking.

Would highly recommend doing this tour while n Gdansk.

Marcin knows absolutely everything about the history of his town durinw WW2. You will walk approx. 2 hours, but not more than 2 km. Unexpected ending of whole story /no spoiler/ 😀

You will finish close to Shipyard, and if it’s Saturday, I recommend you to have a drink there.

We had a great tour guide called Paul and couldn’t recommend him enough. He was really informative and explained everything in excellent English about the city and the influence that the Nazi Party had over it.
