There is Lech Walesa Office (Biuro Lecha Walesy) in the Green Gate. The entrance is from the Long Market, in northern wing of the gate. I didn't meet Mr Walesa in his office. However I could ask to make an appointment with him. Call in advance to make an appointment with the former Solidarity leader if you have something to say/do with Mr Walesa. Don't forget to take the picture of you and Mr Walesa for VT :-).
Lech Walesa, legendary leader of the Solidarity trade union, human rights activist awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1983, president of Poland in 1990 - 1995 is a private person now and as he says, he likes to go fishing. Recently son of Walesa, graduated in the USA, won parlamentary polls and became a memeber of Polish parliament (higher chamber called Sejm). Walesa father gaves lectures abroad (in the USA), meet many top politicians and take a stance in key problems of Poland and the world. He gave a supporting speech to crowds in Kiev, Ukraine during the Orange Revolution. He has established non-governmental organisation: the Foundation Lech Walesa Institute in Gdansk. The Foundation is dedicated to accomplishing the goals which Lech Walesa considers valid and significant and to which he has been faithful all his life.
I wonder, what other former world top leaders (like Margaret Thatcher, Helmut Kohl) do now.
