A visit to the Port of Gdansk

Because it was not possible to photograph the entire pilotage in Gdansk we were invited by Pilot Jakub Sczcerbinski of the Gdansk Pilot Organization to visit the port of Gdansk with the pilot vessel. The port of Gdansk is located in north central Poland Moltawa at the mouth of the river on the southern shores of Gdansk Bay off the Baltic Sea. The Port of Gdansk houses two port areas. Nowy Port (New Port) is a major industrial center and Port Polocny (North Port). At the pilot vessel we had a beautiful view of the harbor and the old city of Gdansk, as the Old Crane Gate (Zuraw). Some of the houses resemble the facades in Amsterdam. It is remarkable to see the old cranes and the great contrast between old and new buildings.
