Poland North to South. Part 1

‘Vodka Train’

So here I am is Gdansk – part of northern Poland’s industrial tri-city. Place where some of the raddest outdoor art has been created. Where also the Second World War started in 1939 and where the first independent trade union called Solidarnosc (Solidarity) gave kick start to abolishing communism in this part of the world. In the centre of everything was the Gdansk Shipyard and now only what’s left of it.

It’s also a colony for creative talents and a secret rendezvous spot for artists.
