“Zuraw Crane in Gdansk”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 December 2013

The oldest and preserved in an excellent condition, port crane in Europe, is the most characteristic building in Gdansk. Absolutely worth to see.

“You wouldn't know it was there unless you knew!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 August 2013

Walking through one of the many arches to the river front with my boyfriend he told me to look up, there was a massive winch and wheeles that hadn't been used in years. Just in a standard looking old Gdansk building is this massively historical crane. Definitely worth a look for those on a history holiday or with connections to the shipyard.

“Massive”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2013

Massive structure close to the city center.
I din not knew about this builing (Gdansk was not on my visit list, so i was not informed about that) but when i have seen this i was very impressed. It seems to be very huge when you are next to it.

“Perhaps better in pictures than in person”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2013

This is a really cool place to see, particularly because it is a rare site. I travel all over Europe and I have never seen anything like it. It is best seen at a distance and even across the river.

“Typical Gdansk Crane”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2013

Quite strange looking from the distance, this crane appears before you at its best when you walk under the arc and look up. Then you can see how massive this structure is, once powered several men working inside.
