(Gdynia, Eastern Pomerania, Poland)

Gdynia is a relatively modern city in Eastern Pomerania. It is not considered a tourist city, however there is a mix of historical, architectural and natural interests available for visitors looking to spend a night or two either side of a ferry crossing.

What to do in Gdynia

Gdynia is set on a scenic coastline and surrounded by picturesque hills, making it the perfect place to relax and enjoy the natural beauty. A walking tour of the centre reveals some interesting architecture, while the harbour is also home to some interesting sights. Finish the day off in one of the town's many great restaurants where you can sample some fine traditional Polish cuisine.

Tourist Attractions

Gdynia does not have and extensive collection of tourist attractions, however there are some very grand buildings such as the 13th century St Michael Archangel's Church in Oksywie and the 17th century Neo-Gothic manor house in Folwarczna street. Various examples of early functionalist buildings can also be seen around the town. Kpa Redowska and its surrounding Reservation Park are some of the area's best natural sights.

At the Oceanographic Museum and Aquarium, visitors are given the chance to observe a large collection of living and preserved animal and plant species from the world's oceans. At the Gdynia Municipal Museum, "Abraham's House", visitors can appreciate the town's development from the days when it was a small village, while at the Naval Museum, various armaments and sea battle equipment from the 16th century are on display. Finally, the warship Blyskawica, which can be found at the harbour, was a major military vessel during WWII and now is now open for public viewing.
