We believe that the experience of the Polish road to freedom gives us civic energy even today and that the heritage of Solidarnosc (Solidarity) is still a source of invigorating ideas for Europe

A definite must museum. You can get no 8 tram at the end of the old town to it. The coffee shop was lovely. The audio guide is a must. Very interesting n easy to follow.
