A walk on the Gdańsk Zaspa is not only a passage between grey houses; here, you can experience the real art of the greatest format! The presented collection includes nearly 60 varied, monumental wall paintings. They can also be admired on 19 entrances to nearby blocks of flats. The collected murals are unique as they were created to commemorate important events or people. One of the works is a mural created on the basis of a photograph that presents Czesław Miłosz meeting the shipyard workers. It was created on the occasion of the Year of Czesław Miłosz. Other murals commemorate the celebration of the millennial anniversary of Gdańsk. Guessing the meanings of paintings can be an interesting pastime and a way to learn about history.
