     Orłowo is one of the most beautiful districts in Gdynia and its pier is one of the main attractions of the city. In the district there are numerous residences and lodging houses that have been entered in the register of monuments.

At the beginning of the 19th Century the Jan Adler inn was established. In the interwar period the lido developed quickly. The most important buildings of the arrangement include the former spa house (Kurhaus), the former Adlershorst inn (Adlerówka) from the first half of the 19th Century, which now houses the Secondary School of Fine Arts. In the historic arrangement you can also find a small house where Stefan Żeromski resided, in 1920, and which now is the seat of the Society of Friends of Orłowo.
