Suchanino (Kashubian: Cëgónczi, German: Zigankenberg), formerly a village, became in 1902 (as Zigankenberg) a district of the city of Danzig (since 1945 Gdańsk, Poland).

After World War II the region was placed under Polish administration and ethnically cleansed according to the post-war Potsdam Agreement. The native German populace was expelled and replaced with Poles.

With 12,937 inhabitants in an area of 1.3 km² it has a population density of 9,812 inhabitants/km². Most buildings are high-rise and were constructed in the 1970s.
