Starting from $139 USD / Adult
OverviewHide
Discover the roots of Poland's famous "Solidarity" movement of 1980 and its stalwart leader, Lech Walesa. You'll be joined by a local guide and historian to explore one of history's greatest examples of the common man rising up against tyranny. Learn how Lech Walesa went from shipyard worker to Nobel Peace Prize Winner, and how the Solidarity movement toppled generations of communist oppression. Visit the European Solidarity Centre, which tells the story of how freedom emerged. See the home of Lech Walesa and stand before the soaring Monument to the Fallen Shipyard Workers of 1970, an homage to 44 who died in the dramatic uprising. You'll also visit St. Brigida's Church, a historic treasure that served as a central meeting place for the Solidarity movement. Sit down at a restaurant for some typical Polish delicacies alongside locals before venturing out to further explore the Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque streets of Gdansk.
