SS Soldek

Gdańsk, Poland

SS Sołdek was a Polish coal and ore freighter. She was the first ship built in Poland after World War II and the first seagoing ship completed in Poland. She was the first of 29 ships classed as Project B30, built between 1949 and 1954 in Stocznia Gdańska (Gdańsk Shipyard). The name was given in honour of Stanisław Sołdek, one of the shipyard's shock workers. The ship is currently preserved as a museum ship in Gdańsk.

The ship was named after the worker Stanislaw Sołdek in Gdańsk Shipyard. There was a part of motivation: if you work well there is a chance that some ship will be named after you. Sołdek was the first ship built after WWII. Now it's the part of the National Maritime Museum

Interesting view inside an old steam cargo ship. It goes from the history (multimedia presentations in the main cargo halls) to steam boilers and engine, to living cabins.

SS Sołdek is a retired Polish coal and ore freighter and it was the first ship built in Poland after World War II and the first seagoing ship completed in Poland. Now it is a ship museum and you cannot miss it as it is really amazing experience to visit it. Ticket only 15 PLN.

There are variety of tickets in ticket office but combination ticket would allow you to get on ferry back and forth. Maritime museum has impressed me maybe I am just not fond of ships and so on. Albeit, Soldek is different, and you may pay visit to the real museum on a genuine ship. You may get deep down as well as on a top of it where a marvelous view opens.

Odeon of Herodes Atticus

The Odeon of Herodes Atticus is a stone theatre structure located on the southwest slope of the Acropolis of Athens. It was built in 161 AD by the Athenian magnate Herodes Atticus in memory of his wife, Aspasia Annia Regilla. It was originally a steep-sloped theater with a three-story stone front wall and a wooden roof made of expensive cedar of Lebanon timber. It was used as a venue for music concerts with a capacity of 5,000. It lasted intact until it was destroyed and left in ruins by the Heruli in 267 AD.

The audience stands and the orchestra (stage) were restored using Pentelic marble in the 1950s. Since then it has been the main venue of the Athens Festival, which runs from May through October each year, featuring a variety of acclaimed Greek as well as International performances.
