Poland: Gdańsk

On Tuesday I got four postcards: one from Poland, one from Finland, one from Taiwan and one from Japan.

The card from Poland shows the medieval port crane of Gdańsk. Gdańsk is a city on the Baltic Sea coast. It is the capital of the Pomeranian Voivodeship and the sixth largest city of Poland. Until 1919 it was a part of the German Empire and between 1920 and 1939 it was a semi-autonomous city-state known as Free City of Danzig. It was the birthplace of the Solidarity Movement in 1980. Today it is Poland's most important seaport.
