    Steam locomotives

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    When you are in Gdynia in summer you can go for a day trip to Koscierzyna to visit an open air museum of steam locomotives.Of course it's open not only in summer, but in July and August at weekends there's a train from Gdynia to Koscierzyna which is pulled by a steam locomotive and usually consists of old carriages.The trip takes about 2 hours and in Koscierzyna you can visit a museum. Even in high season you meet there only a few tourists and if you're interested in those steam engines you can climb and explore them wherever you want.

    Wdzydze- old cottages and farms.

    In my previous tip I recommended a visit to Koscierzyna. Once you get there and you have a car, think about a visit to the next open air museum. The museum is situated in Wdzydze in the beautiful surroundigs. On the display there are many old houses, mills, a church etc.There are also two small country restaurants, but I haven't eaten there so I can't recommend.

    A visit to Baltiysk

    by zaffaran Updated Sep 9, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    When in Gdynia you must take a sea trip to Baltiysk which is in Russia; it takes a whole day to go there and back and costs 100 zloty; unfortunately passengers are not allowed to leave (as it is a military area) but can watch the port and do some extremely cheap shopping in a duty free shop aboard.

    A view over the harbour

    When you are in Gdynia go for a walk to Kamienna Gora - a hill with a big cross on the top. No problem with finding it as it is in the very centre of the town. The sooner you go there, the better you do because now you can still admire the picturesque view. But the trees are growing all the time...
    If you feel hungry-visit Rodizio El Toro (see my restaurant tips)

    This aquapark is located in Sopot-Kamienny Potok, not far away from Gdynia. I strongle recommend you going there especially when you visit Gdynia off-season or when the summer is cold as it offers a wide variety of different water (and not only!) attractions.

    Gdynia has also got its wooden pier and it's worth a visit although it's not as long and famous as that in Sopot, by the pier there also a cliff of Orlowo. if you like fish-by the pier you can buy fresh.

    Gambling?!

    by zaffaran Updated Oct 14, 2005

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you like gambling you can visit a casino in Gdynia. It's located in the centre of the city in the Musical Theatre. Don't expect too much- the casino is small and doesn't offer a wide variety of games but it a kind of cheap, so- why not to try?!

    Dar Pomorza.

    The training ship called Dar Pomorza is one of the most interesting place in Gdynia.
    It is a museum located at the harbour and you will find it without any problems.

    It is the ship 91 metres long. It was bouilt in 1909 year and it was bought in 1929 year as a training ship for Naval School in Poland.

    Its first voyage as a training shi was in year 1930. It was a great school for many generations of students of Naval School. They had their first experiences on this ship.

    Dar Pomorza had 102 voyages also around the world.
    His last voyage was in year 1981 and since year 1983 this ship has been at the Gdynia's harbour and it is opened for tourists.

    For visitors it is opened from Tuesday till Sunday .

    Giant Recliner

    Biggest Recliner I've Ever Seen

    Not sure if this is the world's largest recliner or not, but it's certainly the biggest one I've ever seen. I can't find any information about it online, so I can't tell you much about it, other than it's a recliner, and it's big. We were just walking through town and saw it. It was on a grassy area on Bulwar Nadmorski. I wanted to lay down in it, but some guy beat me to it. Doesn't look very comfortable.
    Now that I think of it, I wonder how he even got up there.

    Beach In Gdynia
    4 more images

    There are several nice beaches around Gdynia. The nicest and most popular one is in the city, but this one can get really crowded. But if you head a few miles out of town, you will find some quieter beaches. These however aren't ideal for swimming, though I saw people swimming at one of them. They are more beaches to go to, if you want to get away from the crowds. The beaches can all be reached on foot. If you're willing to walk a little further, there is a nice swimming beach in Orlowo. If you don't mind the crowds, you can stay in Gdynia.

    Hill with Cross – Kamienna Gora

    by Raimix Updated Jun 20, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I have seen this hill with huge cross from the main street of Gdynia. It is not so far from Gdynia central part. As it is mentioned, mount is about 54 meters high and you could see panorama of town from this upland. Surely if someday I will return to Gdynia, I will make sightseeing from that place :)

    After walking the long street from Gdynia train and tram stations, you will meet concrete pier of Gdynia. This is a place of main city attractions and sites – there are ship museum (presented mostly newer war ships and yachts), some sculptures, restaurants and souvenir kiosks.

    Stone Hill

    by piosku67 Written Aug 20, 2012

    While touring around Gdynia, we stopped by on the top of the hill to see the panorama of the city. I was taken a photo. That's one of many advantages of hosting friends.

    "You can enjoy the beautiful panorama of the harbor and of the city from the top of Kamienna Góra (Stone Hill), easily recognizable by the large cross at its top. "
