Każde z królestw natury: królestwo zwierząt, roślin i minerałow - posiada swoją własną doskonałość.
Człowiek żyjący pośród nich, obserwując je, może czerpać z nich wiele inspiracji w swym dążeniu do własnej, ludzkiej doskonałości.

(Each of the kingdoms of nature: the kingdom of animals, plants and minerals - has its own excellence.
A man who lived among them, watching them, can draw from them a lot of inspiration in his quest for his own, human perfection.)

Gdańsk - The Old Harbour

A Medieval Great Crane, called "Żuraw" in Old Harbour. Built 1442-1444, it was able to increase a weight of 4 tonnes to a height of 11 meters. The Crane was used for ships loading and putting their masts. Mechanism were two drums with diameter of six meters. As a driving force a people walking inside the drums were used.

The Great Crane itself is also a "water gate" - it's Brama Szeroka (Wide Gate).

"Sołdek" - the first ship built in Poland after the II World War.

The reflection on the water is amazing. Like looking at a mirror. Stunning colors and blue skies.

May be old, but gold. You presented the harbour in a beautiful way.
