Visit Gdynia

Gdynia 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.

Visit Poland

Poland offers beautiful views of the Baltic Sea. It has faced challenging times throughout its history, but that has helped the country become one of the strongest members of Europe.

It is a deeply religious nation, which means many of the most important public holidays coincide with the Catholic calendar. Festivals that involve Epiphany, Easter, and Pentecost allow visitors to explore local flavors and customs. Each community tends to have a festival for their patron saint as well, which offers an opportunity to enjoy this culture throughout the year.

The countryside of Poland is relatively untouched compared to other European nations. You’ll find forests, beautiful valleys, and towering mountain ranges to explore. Trails for hiking, cycling, and horseback riding are readily available.

You can even explore the oldest salt mine in the world, which has been in continuous operation since the 13th century. Enjoy some local gingerbread, relax in a Gothic city, or get acquainted with the Renaissance. The choice is up to you.

The history of Poland has created a unique culture of museums and galleries that let visitors know even more about the people of this great nation and its landscapes. You’ll find infamous locations to explore, such as Auschwitz, along with the unspoiled beauty of a woodland like Bialowieza National Park.

Poland really is a one-of-a-kind experience.

From the world heritage sites in Warsaw and Cracow to the hard-working cities of Gdansk and Poznan, Poland offers something for everyone to enjoy. Wide parks, open seas, and inviting mountains are mixed with the castles and cathedrals to create a memorable holiday. Make your way here and you will not be disappointed.
