ROADS TO FREEDOM

EUROPE VIA SOLIDARNOŚĆ

The main idea behind the exhibition is to present a multilayered story, dealing with the modern history of Poland, as well as the phenomenon of Solidarity, portrayed against the backdrop of the most significant European events. The exhibition, by means of state of the art multimedia, takes the viewers on a chronological journey, beginning in 1945, towards a certain goal. This goal is an invitation to visit Poland – the country of a critical historical importance, as well as Gdańsk – the city where the downfall of the communist regime began. It also invites viewers to join in the continuation of the idea of Solidarity nurtured by the European Solidarity Centre.

Each viewer receives a catalogue in the language of the exhibition containing additional detailed information related to the event. There will be a number of stalls with promotional materials and souvenirs. There is no entrance fee.
