Gdynia one of the youngest city.

4th August 2014


GDYNIA-  interesting location, the cliffs famous all around Poland, the longest seaside boulevard, Kościuszko Square, historic ships moored by the quayside, wide municipal beach, port cranes, luxury cruise ships, and yacht harbour with hundreds of masts - all these are the elements of a contemporary port city called The Nautical Capital of Poland. Less than 90 years old, Gdynia is one of the youngest Polish cities. Described as "The city made of sea and of dreams" , it was a dream come true for the people who created it from a tiny fishing village and turned it into a biggest port at The Baltic Sea.

The greatest tourist attraction are the historic vessels moored at the quayside: the only preserved Polish pre-World War II ship, and the oldest destroyer in the world today ORP Błyskawica



"Gift of Pomerania" -a museum ship - now.
