It is surely the most interesting place in Gdynia and one of the most important if it comes to the topic of the Second World War. The history of the Marines in the Polish army is too often omitted in other places so I am...More

This former Polish Naval vessel is now a historic museum. It has served in the Polish Navy and now is available for tours. It is still manned by members of the Navy.

It is very interesting to see but there is not enough English translation. It would be much more interesting to have English speaking guide that could share interesting stories and share the history with none polish visitors.
