Kurkowa City Prison

During its history the City Prison in Gdansk housed all kinds of prisoners: criminals, but political prisoners as well. After the abolishment of the Free City of Gdansk by the Nazis in 1939, hundreds of intellectuals, democrats, freedom fighters and jews were incarcerated here. Many of them were subsequently sent to Piasnica or Szpegawsk, where they were executed.

Tourist information

Nowadays the Prison is not opened for the public. The commemorative plaques are located on the eastern wall, along the 3 Maja Street.
