History of CSG
WALLS FULL OF HISTORY
Gdansk Shipyard Center is an impressive space of dockyard building No. 89A, a pearl among post-industrial buildings in Europe.
It is located in the Gdansk Shipyard, in the very center of Gdansk and in immediate vicinity of the legendary Solidarity Square and historic Old Town. Its history dates back to before World War II and production of military machines U-bots. Later times handed the building over to peaceful purposes, to finally receive current name in 2004 and become proud place of the European Center for Culture and Education.
These changes, together with later general reconstructions, were initiated by Michał Torz, current administrator. Part of the walls and steel structures were removed, changes were made in the crane layout, new concrete structures were set up. From the reinforced concrete floors emerged brilliant flooring and tracks of pre-war street, which have already permanently settled in the space of CSG.
ORIGINAL PLACE OF EVENTS
HHistoric location, walls and floors, railway gates, gallery, impressive chandeliers and wooden clinkers, professional stage and wide arrangement possibilities, plus decor and design refined to the smallest detail – all this combined with a professional approach to all projects makes CSG such an unique place to organize company events, parties, concerts or premieres.
For 16 years we have been providing our rooms free of charge for Christmas Eve for the Poor and Lonely. Our space was chosen from among facilities throughout the country for the location of four Ministerial Meetings organized as part of the Polish Presidency of the Council of the European Union in 2011. CSG has also become a space used in official video clip of the band Sabaton for cult song “40: 1”.
