Port Of Call: Gdnyia, Poland

Situated in north-central Poland, Gdnyia grew from a small fishing village in 1924 to the largest Baltic Sea port in 1938. Known as the “White City,” for its 1920s and 1930s architecture that drew largely on ship elements, Gdnyia is one of few examples of a port giving rise to a city.

Excursions include the Teutonic castle in Malbork; Slowiski National Park, often referred to as the Polish Sahara because of its huge dunes; the tri-City agglomeration, Gdynia, Gdask and Sopot; and Kosterina, in the Kashubian Lake District.
