Is a young, dynamically developing harbour city which has been enjoying city rights since 1926. It plays an important role in trade, tourism and entertainment.
Gdynia is mainly associated with sea, long coast line, beautiful walking routes along the coast, viewpoints, sailing ports and pearls of modernist architecture.
The Kościuszko Square, the best known square in the city with the monument of the Pope John Paul II and the fountain “the Polish Seaman”, creates a unique atmosphere of the city.
The Kościuszko Square transforms into the Southern Pier – an artificial peninsula, which enjoys the status of the most picturesque spot in the city.
The one-in-kind “Avenue of passenger ships”, which commemorates their stay in the harbour, as well as the monument of a boy called “Conductor of the Waves”, which greets and says farewell to the sailors of the Gdynia marina, are worth seeing in the city.
A rarity are historic floating units mooring there, i.a. the oldest destroyer in the world, the only preserved Polish ship built before World War II – “ORP Błyskawica” and the Polish sailing ship “Dar Pomorza” built over 100 years ago, which is nowadays a ship museum.
While admiring the ships one should visit the nearby former House of the Polish Sailor and the Gdynia Aquarium in order to explore the mysteries of sea depths.
It is also a pleasure to visit the Sea Railway Station, the house of Żeromski, post-war torpedo platform or to take a walk along the “Sea Boulevard”.
From a wooden pier in Orłowo one can admire the Hel Peninsula, Gdańsk and Sopot as well as the Cliff of Orłowo – one of the oldest Polish nature reserves.
Gdynia is a charismatic sailing city, perfect not only for the lovers of plain navigation, but also fine culture recipients along with its theatres, museums and galleries. You are welcome to visit us in Gdynia! Zapraszamy!
