Very nice and friendly
Can't see any!
20th century block architecture and ships’ museum.
Building School (Zespół Szkół Budowlanych im. Bronisława Bukowskiego) is one of many schools in Gdynia. It’s a vocational school for 16 – 19 students who graduated middle school called gymnazjum in Polish. The thing which makes me write about it is the unique localisation of school buildings. (It has a dorm either. )The school is on...more
Sea Towers is the name of a newly built skyscraper in Gdynia, just by the sea. The idea of constructing such a high building in a relatively small city with excellent modernist architecture was very controversial. I was one of the critics, but now I have adjusted to the view of the building and appreciate a piece of not banal architecture in a town...more
Kashubian Square (Plac Kaszubski) is quite interesting place in Gdynia located at the end of the main street of the town called Świętojańska Street. What interesting in the square that you can see buildings from 1920., 1930. but also modern ones. And I think they are in a kind of harmony. There is a statue of a Kashubian activist,...more
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....more
If you are fond of architecture, especially modernism, Gdynia is the best place to do a lot of sightseeing. You can read on: that: “…only a few cities had their city-centres and key public buildings built in the spirit of modernist avant-garde such as the case was with Gdynia, Tel Aviv or Brasilia. Gdynia is a an exceptional ubran complex of...more
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.more
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...more

I toured with my wife around Poland for a week. At the last evening (5.8.09) we ate here before leaving the country. There is nothing good to say about this restaurant if you forget its nice decoration! It was the only restaurant within our trip that was really poor. First of all, service... Was there any? Our waiter was almost mute. Whether she...more
Although Sopot have the best party, In Gdynia you can find many places with good party!
one of them is Poklad, a good place with good music and people, try to go and enjoy the night.
Beside Poklad you can go to other places such as: Taboo, Elypse, Mandragora etc.
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...more
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...more
I was walking through the pier of Gdynia and turned to yacht open-air museum side. It was nice to see some Lithuanian flags here. The names of yachts were the same as names of few Lithuanian seaside places - Palanga, Nida, Neringa.
As Gdynia (and Sopot as well) are located on a relatively narrow strip of land situated between the sea and the woods, you should be aware that any time- even far away from the woods you may have such appointments...
When you're in Gdynia in high season and want to visit Hel Penninsula, don't go there by car or bus.The road along the penninsula is very narrow and overcrowded in summer, so instead of sunbathing and relaxing you'll spend some hours in your car.
Fun Alternatives: Going there by boat (www.zegluga.pl) or train (www.pkp.pl) is a better altenative.
If you do not believe that only 86 years ago Gdynia was a fishing village, visit a cottage, a former fisherman's hut, where Cafe Strych / Attic Cafe/ is located. It's a cosy place, excellent for a charming date or a chat with friends. You can dine, drink beer or coffee and even hear poetry. It's a place just behind a brand new built residential...more
Beka Natural Reserve / Rezerwat Beka should be a „must see” for tourists, especially for those who are attracted to bird watching. Also, Górki Wschodnie and Wyspa Sobieszewska in the Vistula River’s estuary, which is in the region, approachable form Gdansk, worth visiting. Anyway, Beka Natural Reserve is a unique place with special, i.e. halophyte...more
Not exactly in Gdynia but in Reda-Pieleszewo (a few kilometres north), easily accessible by car and by train heading for Wejherowo, a stable called Pegaz (Pegasus) offerring cheap rides by horse in the woods surrounding the farm or even longer (approx. 5 hour-long) trips. Very friendly hosts, good (and very friendly) horses Do you need more to have...more
I was walking along the beach & then walking in this small forest. So, you could imagine I was all dusty & jaded.I dusted the sands off my pants & shoes on the train. People were looking as I dirtied the train ! Some men made a comment about my doing, I said, "Nie rozumiem".What was I supposed to say ? Look for a broom & dust my sands off the...more
