Gdynia is a relatively young city born out of the Treaty of Versailles in 1919.
Swietojanska street - the most popular street in Gdynia
Construction began on May 21, 1921 and within 5 years a new city and major port had been created. While it lacks the 1,000 year history of its better known neighbour Gdansk, Gdynia is a wonderful example of a 20th century city with its construction covering the Art Deco period of the 20s and 30s, the Socialist era of post-war Europe and the modern designs of the post-communist Poland. The city can offer beautiful beaches and walks, some of the best restaurants and nightlife in the Tri-city as well as a small but decent selection of hotels and contains a fiercely proud population still shaped by the time not so long ago when Gdynia was viewed as the true Polish city on the coast.

Greetings from sunny Gdynia.
