Howaeer, we only stayed in Gdynia for one day, so we couldn't explore the whole city.
But I liked the waterfront very much.
I suppose the skyscrapers there has been finished by now? Do you have any pictures of that towers?
A lot of new pics of Sea Towers:

Thanks for photos Benonie.

For sure there's a lot of similar buildings, to one which Elvenking has posted, in Europe. But Gdynia is the only city in Europe, where the whole centre of the city is covered with modernistic buildings, built in that one style.

I've created my own Gdynia's photo thread few days ago, where you can see a lot of modernistic buildings in that city. Link is in my signature.

After all it's one of the youngest Polish cities established in 1929 if I remember right...

In 10.02.1926.

Funny thing is that one of the oldest churches in entire region of Pomerania is located in Gdynia. Its St. Michael the Archangel's Church, built in 1124 (only western wall is that old, because church was destroyed and robbed during Swedish Wars). There are few more old buildings in Gdynia.

EOT from me, cause its not a historical thread about Gdynia.

Benonie- waiting for photos of Toruń.

Great project! I wish they built towers like these in our Belgian beach resorts...

Wow! I agree. If I had known there were such modernistic buildings in Gdynia, I should have stayed longer or visited the inner town.
Thanks for showing.

Thank you! Nice photos of Toruń. Shame to say that, but I've never been to that city. Your photos are just one more step of motivation for me to visit Toruń. Maybe next year.

Thanks for sharing them.

Looking at some of the signs in the pictures, i have absolutly no idea how the words are pronounced, whenever i see spanish, italian, french or geman i can pretty much imagine how it would sound even though i dont speak those languages it looks like a really hard language to learn lol

We loved it!
It's a very authentic place and there's friendly atmosphere in this town. We stayed there for 5 days and it was a very relaxed city to finish our Polish holiday.
