The Gdańsk Shipyard is a must-see for visitors to Gdańsk, so we invite you to our Walkative! tour to uncover with us the Shipyard of change.

For many, the Gdańsk Shipyard is the cradle of “Solidarity” and a symbol of the fall of communism in Europe. For fans of industrial buildings, it is a magical space where the industrial architecture of the late 19th century meets the early 20th century, where relics of communism intertwine with modern 21st century architecture.

The Gdańsk Shipyard is a place where imperialism changed into capitalism, where the industrial goals of Nazism changed into the industrial goals of socialism, where communism with the entire Iron Curtain changed into freedom, where the brutal hand of the free market changed the industrial space into a place of entrepreneurship, culture and entertainment.

We will start our tour in the Old Town at the Jan Hevelius Monument, next to the Great Mill (home of the Amber Museum), from where we will take a journey through the dark years of communism, arriving at the Shipyard, where a lot happened and is still happening.

Discover with us a magical part of the city, a district of entertainment, art, history, industry and symbols. Come to the Gdansk Shipyard Ucovered Tour by Walkative!
