ok - so there's not a bad beach and one or two nice houses down towards the seafront but the city is significantly less than 1OO yrs old and alot of it is just the typical concrete slab that you tend to get... at least thats the impression i get as i drive thru... i dont know of anything there that you could compare to sopot or gdansk old town... let me know if you see different!

Merged: Visiting and restaurants to eat in Gdynia

My missus and I recently went on shopping trip to Gdynia the other week and we found a Greek restaurant called " Santorini" away, have been on holiday in the greek islands this summer we thought why not sample this place. Both of us thoroughly enjoyed the food. Now part way through eating my mousaka I bit on something hard.... having fished the offending "thing" out of my food, I discreetly called the waitress over and my missus quietly question what the UFO in my mousaka was. It turn out to be a chip of wood from one of the cooking utensils in the kitchen. Now neither of us wanted to make a fuss, since a) mistakes do happen and b) the food, and atmosphere was very nice. Too our surprise, after profuse apologies they brought us two deserts on the house and when the bill came the didn't charge for the Mousaka. This was service very professional. Actually we felt a little guilty at not being charge for the all the food since the place was agreeable, so we left them a larger than usual tip. Fantastic, so if anyone s in Gydnia and looking for a place to eat, although I'm not AA Gill, I highly recommend it.

It is on the main boulervard, not far from the war memorial and well sign posted.

I know this is very late to post this (just joined today) but just in case someone else reads this like I did, I'd just like to say that I've eaten in Santorini on numerous occasions and it's a great little restaurant and good value for money. In the summer it has a nice garden at the rear that works really well at night......try it you might be surprised.
