A truly epic monument to a truly epic event. I wish courage and perseverence was immortalised in this way everywhere. Sadly it isn't - which is why this monument deserves our respect.

To visit this monument is to really get a sense of the history of shipbuilding workers in this city. It is literally a towering monument and one not to miss.

Monument remembering shipyard workers killed during strike in 1970. Tall crosses overlook the Town and remember women and families waiting for their MEN which just go to work like on each ordinary day...

The tall concrete crosses serve as a memorial to slain workers and it is a touching scene. It is adjacent to the beautiful Solidarity Museum. It's also a valuable landmark for navigating that part of the city.

A sombre and fitting monument beside the European Solidarity Centre and the gates to the former Lenin Shipyards. Visitors to the city should visit here to try to understand the effects of Polish history on European history, and where we are in the world today.

Situated in the new town, the monument outside the Solidarity Centre is a quite a sombre sight. To really appreciate the momument and what it stands for, I'd recommend a visit inside the Solidarity Centre.
