Architectural Landmarks in Gdańsk

Gdańsk, located on the Baltic coast, is Poland's principal seaport. Since the 14th century, it was part of the Hanseatic League and, during its complex history, has seen periods of autonomy as the Free city of Danzig, as well as Polish, Prussian and German rule. During World War II, the city was heavily damaged, but then beautifully restored. And most notably, Gdańsk was the birthplace of the Solidarity Movement, which played a pivotal role in the fall of Communism in Eastern Europe. In this photo series, I'll be showcasing some of Gdańsk's most iconic architectural landmarks, including the Long Market and the European Solidarity Center.
