Together with the Gull’s Lair, they were built to defend the mouth of the Vistula River and effectively repel the attacks of armies besieging the city.Westerplatte is a small peninsula where a Military Transit Depot was established between the wars. It was here that the German battleship Schlezwig Holstein fired the first shots, starting the first battle of World War II.
