    Take a taxi to Danzig

    by globetrott Written Aug 11, 2014

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Your best solution, when you dont want to book some overpriced excursion to Danzig / Gdansk onboard of your cruiseship,might be a taxi, that you share with 3 other passangers from your ship, as taxis mostly will have just 5 seats, including the driver.
    The total distance from Gdynia to Gdansk is more than 1 hour by taxi and there might be a lot of trafic and so I am not really, if I should really recommend to you to organize such a taxiride on your own. There will be taxis waiting there in port and you might be lucky to find a driver doing it for a relatively cheap price, but you will see,
    you will have a bad time untill you come back in time, or you simply calculate to come back to the ship much too early.
    I have done that distance once in a taxi in communist times, it was quite some adventure then, but also a lot less trafic on the roads back in the 1980s.

    When you go by taxi, dont forget to fix a stop at Oliva Cathedral as well, that should not be a wide detour - read more about it in my tips "off the beaten path"

    By train to Gdansk

    by globetrott Updated Aug 11, 2014

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    By train to Gdansk is another option, when you want to avoid the tours offered by the ship, but you eighter walk about 30 minutes to the trainstation in Gdansk, or you take a taxi there, then the train between these 2 cities takes about 35 minutes, but there are several trains each hour and you can rely much more on the trains than on a taxi, when it comes to rushhours etc.
    In case you take the train, you can make a stop-over in Gdansk Oliva as well to see the great cathedral there.
    Check out the timetable in the link below !
    Gdansk Glowny is the name of the Main trainstation !
    Validate your ticket before you get on the train

    by cruise to Gdynia

    by globetrott Written Aug 11, 2014

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    For most of the cruiseships Gdynia is the main port when visiting Gdanzk / Danzig. And when you have not yet been there at all, I would also waiste no time in Gdynia itself.
    Take the train, a taxi or book one of the many tours to Gdansk onboard of your cruiseship, so you are on the safe side, when there is a traficjam and your tourbus is stuck there, your ship will wait only for its own tourbuses, while they dont mind leaving you back behind in case your taxi is late.
    The port of Gdynia is in a short distance to town, and to the trainstation Gdansk Glowny you have to walk about 30 minutes.

    Walk From Orlowo

    by briantravelman Written Jan 18, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We took a train from Gdansk to Orlowo. We had no interest in visiting Gdynia, but since we were so close, and had the whole day, we decided to go. We were looking for a trail to get to Gdynia. We had already walked too far to go back to the train station, so we decided to just keep walking. Finally, we found a guy who was from the area, and he told us we could get to Gdynia by following the beach, so we did.
    It was a nice walk, and we saw some really nice beaches, that weren't too crowded.
    The only challenge was the concrete walkway we encountered about half way. It was really narrow and slippery, but eventually we made it to Gydnia. It was about 2.5 miles (4 kilometers), and took us around an hour. The city was actually a lot further then it looked. We walked around for about an hour, than found the train station, and took the train back to Gdansk.

    SKM station - St. Maksymilian Hill

    by piosku67 Written Aug 24, 2012

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Wzgórze św. Maksymilian SKM station has been just gone through a complete renovation. The station is one of many SKM – commuter train station from which I start my everyday short trips to Sopot, Gdansk or Wejherowo. The name derives from the name of the district, which is actually situated on hills. The most important hill, in fact moraine, is one where a church is located, the church of friars – Franciscans. Before the II World War it was called Marshal Foch Hill, later in the communist times Marceli Nowotko Hill. Now St. Maksymilian Kolbe is a patron of the district and the station as well.
    It is just near Gdynia Główna SKM station, so many people not familiar with the local topography are nervously, while travelling by SKM train, try to get information from others, if it’s the proper station and it’s time to get off the train. The characteristic feature is high, red-brick tower of the church on the hill easily seen from the windows of the train. But to get to Gdynia Główna you have to go ahead.
    For those who wants to start their tour in Gdynia, I think it’s a good place to begin with. There’s City Centre Hall and the Świętojańska Street is here. You can easily reach the sea.

    Walking in Gdynia

    by zaffaran Updated Jan 11, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Definitely walking is the best way to move around as the centre of the town is not very big but if you're tired you can take a bus or trolleybus, almost a 100% of which is accessible for wheelchairs. Gdynia has also got a good train connection with Sopot and Gdansk (by so called fast city train which operates quite often, especially in the summer).
    If you drive a car it's worth mentioning that Gdynia is drivers friendly- free parking zones are everywhere in the centre - with one exception - on the main street Swietojanska you can park up to 30 mins.

    I walked to Gdynia from Sopot. Walking along the beach which has many nice scenes along the way.

    I had to go to the train station to head back to Gdansk. The photo was taken at the train station in Gdynia.

    This is the Gdynia train station. You can safely leave your luggage here for only a couple of dollars while you go walking around and exploring.,
