Gdansk is the sixth-largest city in Poland, its principal seaport, and the capital of the Pomeranian Voivodship. The name is thought to mean town located on Gdania river, the original name of the Motlawa branch the city is situated on. Like many other European cities, Gdansk has had many different names throughout its history. On 1st September 1939 the armoured ship, Schlezwig-Holstein, began shelling the Polish military post on Westerplatte. This was the breakout of the Second World War. Recaptured by the troops of the II Belarus Front in March 1945, Gdansk was soon reduced to a sea of ruins. Fortunately, the destroyers left the scene replaced by builders, conservators, and artists who spent another fifty odd years bringing the city back to its previous glamour. Gdansk Shipyard was the birthplace of the Solidarity trade union movement, whose opposition to the government led to the end of communist party rule in 1989.
