Gdynia

Scout Monument

A monument dedicated to Gdynia Secret Scouts Troop (Gdyni Tajny Hufiec Harcerzy) who carried out clandestine operations in occupied Gdynia during WWII. Their surveillance and mapping of German fortifications, in what was then a major Germany navy port (Festunring Gotenhafen) was credited with helping the Soviet 1st Armoured Army to a swift liberation of the city in March 1945. What had been a grey unattractive block of stone, designed by Władysław Klikowicz and originally unveiled in 1966, has been painted white and given some attractive gold touches to compliment the neighbouring new development.
