In Gdansk, Gdynia, Sopot, Tourism

As the weather is getting better during the 44th Polish Film Festival, it is more and more tempting to go out between screenings. We present a couple of interesting ideas on spending time in Gdynia.

Outdoor places

If you don’t have much time between screenings, you can always take a short walk not far from the Festival venues. One of the most spectacular and famous spots of Gdynia is just a stonethrow away from the Musical Theatre.

We especially recommend this place for commuting between Helios cinema in Riviera Mall and the Musical Theatre. It’s hard to think of a better place to organize your thoughts after a good movie.

Taking an alternative route, you will be able to see an extraordinary city center. Keep your head high and enjoy beautiful examples of modernistic architecture.

Take some hours off to explore Tricity

If you find some more time between your festival activities, here are some spots for you to visit.

An option which requires the longest time off is Westerplatte in Gdansk. This extraordinary place is a spot where World War II started. It is an obligatory point for all visiting the Tricity area.

Staying in the subject of the Second World War, Gdansk has its own museum of this time. Here is our report from the opening of the Main Exhibition.

Yet another interesting place to visit while visiting Gdansk is the European Solidarity Centre. It is a place which will tell you about the history of Polish Solidarity movement.

If you are not a museum type and would rather enjoy a very pleasant walk, visit Oliwa Park. One of the most beautiful places in Tricity is waiting to host you in its charming paths.

Take a walk in Sopot

If you would like to visit one of the most beautiful Polish resorts, you need to go to Sopot. While going towards the longest wooden pier in Europe, take some side streets. You will definitely enjoy the charming architecture of the Town.

Public Transport in Tricity

While traveling around Tricity you may use one of the public means of transportation. Here is a little guide to make it easier for you.
