Gdańsk, Twierdza Wisłoujście
The Tower of Wisłoujście
The monument is almost 500 years old and was built according to Dutch design. However its look is characterised by the influence of different architectural styles over the centuries.
The Tower of Wisłoujście is a unique example of a relatively well-preserved port defense structure from the first half of the 17th century, and has witnessed several key events in the history of Poland and Gdansk. It was stormed by King Stefan Batory, launched the fleet of King Zygmunt II to victory, and defended the legally chosen king Stanisław Leszczyński causing a certain amount of trouble for the Poles who, along with Napoleon, liberated Gdansk from the hands of the Prussians.[
In the 19th century, the Prussians housed a prison in the dungeons of the Tower.
The deparment of the Tower of Wisłoujście collects artifacts connected with the unique history of this fortification.
Currently closed to visitors due to renovation work. The Tower of Wisłouijście is due to open after a complete overhaul of Fort Carre and will be transformed into a museum and tourist area.
Ruina, dojazd żadny, okolica jak po wybuchu bomby atomowej, brak jakiejkolwiek informacji, okolica twierdzy jak po wojnie. W takiej formie to wstyd a nie oddział muzeum.
