Freemasonry in Gdansk, Poland
The apperance of Johannes and Eva Hevelius Triangle is a symbolic relevance to the history of freemasonry in Gdansk. Please note, that tradition of the Craft in the city reaches 17th Century and Gdansk was one of the most masonic centres in Poland, second only to Warsaw. The Craft was struck in 30's by the Nazis and utterly destroyed by WW2 and communist regime. Now, we try to re-establish our presence in Gdansk so the free thought and spirit can fully return to the region.
