Gdynia was created from the sea and dreams of the post-war generation of Poles, according to the words of Stefan Żeromski, the Polish writer of the times, “…a poem created in wood, stone, concrete and iron, an overwhelming drama depicting the taking from the sea of the forces of water, depth and power…”. Today it is a modern and dynamically-growing city with its modern development and economy open towards the sea.
