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.

Soldek is the first ship build in the Gdansk Shipyard after the Second World War. Soldek is now a part of the National Maritime Museum in Gdansk. Actually it the first ocean-going ship in the history of the Polish shipbuilding industry. Now it is moored on the Motlawa river.

Amazing Combi visit, the ship, museum and granary takes you back in time with wonderful exhibit for kids and adults. A must see!

Really interesting if your into ships and sea faring, but more could be made of the space.

It's good for a quick visit. May be interesting for kids who never been on a ship before. Would be much better if there were any interactive items there.

Quite a nice to go around the ship, though there are no translations in English, which is a bit of a shame... The paint has been piled on as opposed to proper maintenance, but interesting nonetheless. Make sure that you wear decent footwear, as you would expect lots of ladders

Château des Ducs de Bretagne

The Château des ducs de Bretagne (Castle of the Dukes of Brittany) is a large castle located in Nantes. It served as the centre of the historical province of Brittany until its separation in 1941. It was the residence of the Dukes of Brittany between the 13th and 16th centuries, subsequently becoming the Breton residence of the French Monarchy. Today the castle houses the Nantes History Museum.

The restored edifice now includes the new Nantes History Museum, installed in 32 of the castle rooms. The museum presents more than 850 objects of collection with the aid of multimedia devices. The castle and the museum try to offer a modern vision of the heritage by presenting the past, the present and the future of the city. Night-time illuminations at the castle further reinforce the revival of the site. The 500-metre round walk on the fortified ramparts provides views not just of the castle buildings and courtyards but also of the town.
