Gdansk: Private Communism Tour with Solidarity Center Museum

3. Gdansk: Private Communism Tour with Solidarity Center Museum

"Do you know what happened on August 31, 1980? Learn about the greatest civic success in the modern history of Poland - the victorious Solidarity movement. Embark on a Communist-themed tour of Gdansk and discover the history of the revolution that led to the fall of the Communist Bloc. During the 2-hour tour you will learn in depth about the Communist-era Poland and the birth of democracy in the Eastern Bloc. Visit the European Solidarity Center (ESC) with skip-the-line tickets that let you beat the crowds. Inside this modern museum, you will walk step by step through the history of Solidarity. You will see the original Tables of 21 Postulates - the written demands that the strikers at the Lenin Shipyard (now Gdansk Shipyard) made against the authorities in 1980, as well as other documents and photographs that document the trade union’s fight for freedom - the strikes, the 1989 round table talks, and first pluralistic election in Poland since 1947. Learn about Lech Walesa, Anna Walentynowicz, and other heroes who led the revolution. Your Private Guide will help you to understand the exhibitions and the historical context behind the Solidarity strikes and their legacy on the rest of Eastern Europe. Choose the 4-hour option to learn even more about the Polish People’s Republic (commonly known as PRL) and communism. See the Solidarity Square and hear the tragic story behind the Monument to the Fallen Shipyard Workers of 1970. Visit the historic site where the “Gdańsk Agreement” of 31 August 1980 was signed - the Center of worker protection of Gdansk shipyard, also known as Sala BHP. The last stop will be Gdansk Shipyard (Stocznia Gdansk), where 17,000 ship builders began the civil resistance against the communist regime in 1980. In the tradition of PRL, we will also invite you for a shot of Polish vodka."

Our guide was very cordial, knew a lot to tell and spoke fluent German and English! He responded well to questions. Was very attentive. Gladly again next time!

We had a really good trip around with the driver/guide Simon who was really good at telling stories. We send the warmest recommendations to Simon.

Great tour around Gdansk. History, stories and small anecdotes about the city. Take the tour at the start of your visit! The guide was fantastic
