Gdynia (German: Gdingen) was founded as a fishing village and agricultural center. As Poland grew, gained independence, and the region began to expand, it became an influential seaport as well. It is a hard-working city, a popular stopover for passenger ships, and is often ranked at or near the top of the best places to live in Poland.
The initiative to build-up Gdynia started in the early 20th century and was then restarted in the 1970s. This makes it one of the most modern cities that Poland offers. There are hidden gems that can be found on its streets, however, such as the 13th century St. Michael the Archangel Church and the 17th century manor house that is found on Flowarczna Street.
What Gdynia lacks in historical architecture it makes up for with access to nature. The coastline and its surrounding hills are some of the most beautiful you’ll ever see. Take a leisurely walk along the promenade during sunset to enjoy a strawberry sky as you move from the city center to the beach in Redlowo.
Or make your way up Kamienna Gora to get a full view of the city.
Events are held on a regular basis in Gdynia, including air races, football matches, and professional basketball. An annual film festival is held every November and a contemporary music festival, the Open’er, draws in musicians from around the world.
Gdynia is for the explorer’s heart. It is a modern city, but maintains a historical perspective, and that is why it is such a special place to visit.

Gdynia is a seaport on the Baltic Sea and one of the most important strategic cities in all of Poland. The history of this city dates back over 1,000 years and even earlier was belived to be the center of Oksywie culture.
The Oksywie were believed to be a people who lived in the area for about 300 years, from the 2nd century BC to around the year 100. The city was first mentioned as a fishing village in the year 1253, and from there it has become one of the most influental seaports in the area. The modern city of Gdynia was commissioned to be built in 1925, was a Nazi naval base during World War II, and now serves as a major shipping port.
The Torpedo Launch Station
The Nazis used Gdynia as a major military installation during World War II, so much so that not only were they using it as a supply hub for their navy, but also as a concentration camp. To protect their investments into this city, the Nazis built a torpedo launcher almost 100 meters out into the sea to help protect the harbor, their military installations, and launch preemptive attacks if the became necessary. Today you can visit this launch station, though you’ll enjoy it more if you love diving. Explore an underwater labryinth and see a piece of history that many people simply never get to experience. It’s definitely a once in a lifetime adventure!
Visit the ORP Blyskawica
Speaking of World War II and good examples of history, you’ll want to take the time to visit the ORP Blyskawica. A destroyer that has now been turned into a museum, the cannons and guns mounted on deck have been well maintained because the Polish Navy still crews the ship itself. That means your tour guides are really Polish sailors! The ORP Blyskawica is filled with plenty of stories and historical data about the war, which means not only will it be a fun time, but you might get a different perspective on history as well.
Don’t Forget About the Aquarium!
Gdynia has long been known for having a fantastic aquarium and once you see it for yourself, you’ll likely agree. Featuring an underwater model of the Baltic coastline, there are several different species of sea life that you’ll be able to stroll around and sea. It’s always fun to have an underwater experience too and this aquarium provides that as well! Charming and interesting, a visit to the aquarium is the perfect way to enjoy a rainy, lazy day in the city.
Though the history that occurred within the city may have scarred millions of families, Gdynia itself has worked hard to cast off the occupation of the Nazis to establish itself has an influential seaport for its country.
