Gdansk Shipyard Uncovered Free Tour
We are Walkative! Our goal is to promote our cities across Poland, Germany, France, Ukraine and Israel and cooperate in promoting our partners across all of Europe - no matter what your budget is! Since 2007 we have guided more than 3 million people. We provide tours in English, Spanish, Polish and German mostly.
The Gdansk Shipyard is a must-see for visitors to Gdansk, so we invite you to our Walkative! tour to uncover with us the Shipyard of change.
For many, the Gdansk 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
- the industrial goals of Nazism changed into the industrial goals of socialism
- communism with the entire Iron Curtain changed into freedom
- the brutal hand of the free market changed the industrial space into a place of entrepreneurship, culture and entertainment.
We will start our tour at Plac Solidarności (next to Pomnik Poległych Stoczniowców 1970 Monument), 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!
ℹ️ ⚠️ ATTENTION - booking rules
Please note that our free tours are designed for individual travelers and small private groups only. Hence, we do not accept parties of 8 or more people on regular free tours and guides have the right to deny participation to such groups. If you travel in a party of 8 or more please book a private tour in advance.
If you show up at the meeting point with the bigger group our guide will ask you for the payment (10 eur/person) before the tour or cancel your reservation on the spot. To confirm your reservation please arrive 10 minutes before starting. We can not guarantee participation when you will be late.
Please note that multiply bookings (under different names) for 7 people who belong to one group will still be treated as one organized group and the guide has the right to deny participation to such parties.
This policy is implied in the best interest of our individual visitors.
Please respect our rules.
