Old Town

Reviewed By Karen90 - Salisbury, England

The old town is fairly compact and whilst full of interesting buildings doesn’t initially grab you as stunning. The colours are all fairly faded and pastel but when you look closely the facades are detailed and ornate. The wide streets shut to traffic allow you to wander around and see the various buildings of interest easily. Look closely it’s worth it

Museum of the Second World War (Muzeum II Wojny Swiatowej)

Reviewed By Svesa - Alesund, Norway

Opened in 2017 I reckon this is a "must" for visitors to Gdansk. The 2 World War actually started in Gdansk, and we should always remind ourselves of what happened. It is a museum that makes you humble ....

Malbork Castle Museum

Reviewed By Sarah W - Ottawa

Visited Malbork Castle on a day trip from Gdansk. Easy train ride and walkable from the train station (though I was glad for Google maps). The audio guide is excellent, automatically telling you details based on where you are and telling you how to get to the next spot. I felt a little overwhelmed with information after two hours and cut my visit short; seems like you could easily spend 4-6 hours at the castle.

Lacka Dune

Reviewed By iBrandonTing - Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Never been to the Sahara Dessert? Here is a miniature version of it! A great place for kids and family, Ive seen people rolling down and doing back flips down the dessert.
It is located quite a distance from the main square in Leba, so walking is not really an option, a bicycle rental is available but it takes time to cycle as well. You can get a cheap cart ride ( 11zl two ways trip from the main square to THE ENTRANCE of the national park ) , later, you have another few more options to reach the Lacka Dune.
I suggest getting a ride which is quite costly but its worth it as walking takes an hour and a half.
A summary of the dunes, it spans a huge area. While you are on the top, you can enjoy the spectacular view of Leba and the Baltic Sea. There are restricted areas to preserve the original look of the dunes.

Orlowo Pier

Pier in Gdynia Orłowie is about 180 m long and now is a pier Promenade. The first pier was established here in 1924 and was 115 m Five years later it was rebuilt and extended to 430 m so that it could also serve as a haven for coastal shipping vessels. The construction materials used in the exploded at that time a wooden pier in Gdynia. After World War II the pier was destroyed in a storm, and reduced it to its present length, ie 180 meters from the pier on the right we see the most advanced part of Holmes

Reviewed By MetalliaMatkassa - Helsinki, Finland

Orlowo Pier is smaller than the pier in Sopot, but still lovely place to visit (and also less crowded of tourists, and no entrance fee!). I highly recommend walking from Orlowo back to centrum Gdynia following the beach. It's approx. 6km walk.
You'll also find interesting abandoned hotel next to the pier. If you are interested in bit of urbex, you might want to check out that as well!

Oliwa Cathedral

Reviewed By AgPar65

nice Cathedral, interesting architecture, great organ - worth to stop a while for the concert, we visited in September, wasn't crowded, I don't remember any fees...?
anyway, I recommend to visit the cloister - the direct entrance from the inside of Cathedral. The cloister has some interesting interiors and Exhibitions, offers a relaxing stroll cause tourists seem avoid this place...
also I recommend to read some basic facts about the place and its history before visit.

Dluga Street (ul. Dluga)

Reviewed By neaskemenna - Antrim, United Kingdom

The buildings were amazingly pretty with lots of history. We took the free walking tour and also downloaded one of the free tour apps which helped to give a bit of context when visiting each landmark. There are an amazing amount of restaurant and bars and also some gift shops. A must if you are visiting Gdansk.

Emigration Museum in Gdynia

The Mission of the Emigration Museum in Poland is to recount the fates of millions of both anonymous and famous people - whose names emerge in the context of great achievementsin science, sports, business, and the arts. It is the ambition of this institution to make them known to Poles at home, but it is also to encourage our compatriots living at home and abroad to get to know each other. Through educational and cultural projects, the museum hopes to become a place of encounter and discussion. We feel we fulfill a particular duty in achieving this end at the best possible address - Polska Street No. 1.

Reviewed By hnsn_1 - Prague, Czech Republic

We were really pleasantly surprised with our visit to the Emigration Museum. The museum is in building of former station at the harbour in Gdynia from which in old times people were boarding the passenger liner going to America. The exhibition is beautifully presented and it is definitely worth the visit for all, maybe younger kids might get a bit bored. It tells the history of emigration of Poles in all times to all possible continents. There is also very nice coffee place and greatly positioned restaurant with a view of the harbour. Downstairs there is a shop with lots of nice souvenirs.

European Solidarity Centre

We believe that the experience of the Polish road to freedom gives us civic energy even today and that the heritage of Solidarnosc (Solidarity) is still a source of invigorating ideas for Europe

Reviewed By bryanedwin - Milton Keynes, United Kingdom

This beautifully-built museum tells the story of how stubborn shipyard workers fought for freedom and ended up toppling communism in Europe. It's a stirring, emotional tale set on the site of the old Lenin Shipyard and housed in a magnificent building crafted from steel ships' plates. A must see for anyone - especially those fascinated by social reform.

Oliwa Park

Reviewed By Mark B - Cardiff, United Kingdom

We came to the park as we were visiting the modern art gallery which is based within it. We did not expect such an amazing area and even in early winter it was really nice for a walk to and from the tram stop. In spring/summer I Would imagine it would be fantastic.
