Oksywie is the oldest district of present Gdynia. The first historic references about old church village “Oxiva” date back to 1214. Even older is the history of the settlement in this area dating back to 65-500 BC. In 7th -12th centuries there was a fortified town being the office of the head of the community and later the duke’s administration. To prove rich history of Oksywie is the fact of existing a parish founded before 1224, which makes it one of the oldest parishes in the Gdansk Pomerania. The real treasure of Oksywie is St. Michael Archangel church, considered one of the oldest in the Pomorskie region.
