Well, to begin with, the ship doesn’t land in Gdansk. It docks in Gdynia, about one-half hour away from Gdansk. That gave our tour guide a long time to fill us in on the bus ride. Again, we had a guide who was very passionate about her city. We passed the Gdansk Lenin shipyards and Solidarity Square where workers were shot in 1970. Lech Walesa is her hero for co-founding Solidarity and presiding over Poland as it changed from a Communist state.
We arrived in Gdansk and entered the old town through the Green Gate.
This was a very short day. We landed in port around 6AM and left about 1PM. I would really enjoyed a little more time in this beautiful city.
