Learn about the most important attractions


The legendary place has become a refuge for Tri-City alternative artists in recent years. When visiting Gdansk, it's worth a trip here to see how history combines with avant-garde art in an interesting way and becomes a tourist attraction. The shipyard areas today have more to do with independent culture, art and entertainment than shipbuilding. Nevertheless, visiting them requires passing through one of the most famous gates in Poland, the so-called "historical gate" right next to the Monument to the Victims of December 70. While there, it is worth visiting, among others, ul. Elektryków and 100cznie - a cluster of food trucks, bars and art spaces located in containers and post-shipyard buildings, the Imperial Shipyard, the docking basin and its art installation, WL4 - an art gallery in the old Shipyard building and the M3 Crane - an absolute must see!

A port city with plenty of attractions


The most famous place in Gdynia and a must-see on any tour is undoubtedly Kosciuszko Square. It is the main place of entertainment and recreation for residents of Gdynia and tourists who want to take a stroll and see, by the way, numerous nautical attractions in the form of the historic destroyer ship "ORP Blyskawica" and the sailing ship "Dar Pomorza." This is the only place where within a 10-minute walk you will find a venue for cultural events and entertainment, the harbor wharf and even a sandy beach adjacent to the yacht basin. An unforgettable experience of the depths of the seas will be provided by the Oceanographic Museum and the Maritime Aquarium located here. From here you can also take a cruise ship to the Hel Peninsula or Gdansk. Lovers of walking can take a walk along the nearby Seaside Boulevard. This most famous promenade runs between the foot of Kamienna Gora and Kępa Redłowska, and the Gdansk Bay. It connects the beach in Downtown with the beach in Redlow.


Gdynia is different from the old Pomeranian cities. It's numerous nautical references: round windows, referring to ships' portholes, sharp building blocks, resembling ships' hulls, superstructures, whose prototype was a captain's bridge, or external stairs like ship's gangways...There are few such large, compact ensembles of modernist architecture in Europe as in Gdynia.The city, built as a Polish dream, a "window to the world", as part of an ambitious economic plan, was at the same time a field for young Polish architects, urban planners, decorators and interior designers. Gdynia's modernist Downtown was formed in the very short period of the decade of the 1930s, which further strengthened the symbolic message of "white architecture" and "sunny city."
