(Gdańsk) has been the center point of world news for quite

Gdansk, the labor union of Solidarność led by Lech Walesa fought
for more freedom, starting the end to the communist regime.
Nowadays the historic Old Town and the lively nightlife draw many tourists and visitors to the city of Gdansk. And whilst you are there, also visit its sister cities of Sopot and Gdynia!
