About

Westerplatte, a small peninsula was the starting point of the world’s largest military conflict. 7 days long battle between mighty German Army and a small group of Polish soldiers was the first episode of WW2. Come with us to Westerplatte, to know the history of blood, honour and courage. 


At dawn, 1 September 1939, the eyes of the world turned towards Gdańsk. The main gun battery of the German battleship Schleswig-Holstein announced the beginning of a new world war. Surrounded and isolated, Westerplatte, attacked from land, air and sea, was expected to be taken within a maximum of 3 hours. But what was supposed to be a quick victory turned into a furious battle that took 7 days and many brave lives. Soon, stories and songs, the incredible effort of Polish soldiers of Westerplatte.


Come and see with your own eyes how the impossible became possible. Learn how a small company of men fought their way to immortality in the annals of history.
