Winter – only as a private tour 

Two of the watershed moments of the 20th century were World War II and the collapse of communism. Gdańsk is the city where both of these events began.

The death of the city at the end of WWII is our starting point. Post-war Gdańsk was left in ruins, nearly all of its pre-war population was gone and the city had to be repopulated by settlers from the east. On the rubble of the past, the new communist city arose. Like all the other countries on the eastern side of the Iron Curtain, Poland became the part of the Soviet bloc. Despite persecutions and repressions it was the workers of the Gdańsk shipyards who started the strike that sparked the decade-long process leading to the collapse of communism.

We will travel in time from the destruction of Gdańsk to the shipyards, from the Free City of Danzig to the City of Freedom. Join us for a tour that will help you understand the complicated modern history of Gdańsk and its people. Walk with us along the path that brought freedom to half of Europe.
