Monument in Gdynia is not the best description you say? Well, there is not much more information I could get about that even though I was visiting Gdynia with locals.

Maybe you can help me with some information?
So far that has been the most interesting modern Library building I’ve seen. I was passing it every morning for two weeks on the way to my language course and I was always wondering what the 3 little “turbines” on each side are for. One day I went in to check it out, and can you believe it? They are three “single reading rooms”, where you can take your books, close the door behind you and have calm space to read. How cool was that idea of the architect?
With that one I got lucky. First of all: A nicely colored sunset. Second, Fishermen for something interesting in the front. Third, the green “Island” on the left (which isn’t an island, the boat was taking it out later back to the sea. Guess it just drifted to the port.). And all that in front of the famous riverside of Gdansk.
