The Zuraw Crane | Gdansk, Poland

Zuraw Crane in Gdansk

Gdańsk is such a magnificent town and with all the water around one can surely get the idea to go fishing in Gdańsk.

I was very lucky with the weather. The clouds caused a great sunset but no ten minutes later it started pouring. But in other ways as well, it is impossible to capture this scene a second time. That tuft of grass on the water is not a small island as you might think but just something that drifted into the port. The ship was just about to tie it up and pull it out again.

The building on the right, is probably the most iconic building in Gdansk. It’s the crane building also called “Zuraw”. It’s the largest medieval port crane in Europe and also serves as a fortified water gate.
