The Port of Gdansk is connected with the nation’s capital, Warsaw, by the Vistula River that supplies much of Warsaw’s water supply. In 1980, unrest by laborers in the Port of Gdansk’s shipyards led to the now-famous Solidarity movement in Poland. In 2007, over 456 thousand people lived in the Port of Gdansk, but over 880 thousand lived in the Three-City region.
The Port of Gdansk houses two port areas. Nowy Port (New Port) is a major industrial center, and Port Polnocny (North Port) is the largest maritime development project in Poland and an important hub for exports of coal and imports of petroleum.
The Port of Gdansk’s industrial sections includes shipbuilders, petrochemical and chemical plants, and food processors. New high-tech industries in the city are growing and include electronics, information technology engineering, telecommunications, pharmaceuticals, and cosmetics.

They may be up to 400 meters long, with a maximum draft up to 15 meters, at the depth of the basin of 17 meters. Out of more than 3,000 vessels sailing to the Port of Gdańsk,

passenger ships

Each year, the Port of Gdańsk hosts several dozen passenger ships, some of which visit many times during the season. Thousands of passengers line their decks, waiting to visit the most interesting places in Pomerania. The first attraction for tourists is the entry of the ship and mooring at one of the quays: the Obrońców Westerplatte and WOC II quays, which are located at the port entrance.
The Obrońców Westerplatte Quay – an attractive place due to its location and history. Within five minutes, passengers can reach one of the most valuable monuments in Gdańsk – the Wisłoujście Fortress and the Monument to the Defenders of Westerplatte, located several hundred meters from the quay.

On 1 September 1939, World War II began with an attack on Westerplatte by the battleship Schleswig-Holstein. Passenger ships moor right at the foot of the monumental Monument to the Defenders of Westerplatte, erected in memory of those events.
There is also a marina nearby, where ships dock to offer cruises to the Old Town, the very heart of Gdańsk. The Obrońców Westerplatte Quay is also well connected to the national and international network of roads.
Therefore, it is possible to easily and quickly reach the centre of Gdańsk and other famous tourist destinations, such as Malbork or Warsaw.
WOC II Quay – established in the immediate vicinity of the Cpt. Ziółkowski Quay, only 15 minutes by ship after passing the port “heads”. This is a considerable advantage, especially for tourists and tour operators who have visitors wanting to spend as much time as possible sightseeing. It is recommended for excursion programs aimed at visiting the centre of Gdańsk and its northern surroundings.
