The city was built from scratch over the span of the late 1920s and early 1930s of the previous century. Gdynia’s architecture and urban development of the port, the downtown and residential districts is record of the artistic trends in Europe’s modernism style. “Gdynia Modernism” was distinguished by modern structure, functionality and the use of marine and ship-related details. In the very downtown area of the city one can stroll along the Sea Boulevard, sunbathe on the beach or relax in the beautiful park on Kamienna Góra, admire Gdynia’s panorama from its top. Gdynia is now firmly established as a port of call for many of the cruise itineraries and this provides a great opportunity for passengers to explore the region (especially one thousand years old Gdansk).
