Hello, next month ill be Gdynia for a day while on a cruise ship. What is the best thing to do while there?? I havent been to Poland since i was a kid but am originally from there and have been relearning Polish so would also love to practice it a little with locals if possible. I love photography and shopping. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!! We are 2 females in our mid 20's btw.

Thank you!!

See the Aquarium in Gdynia, with giant sea turtles and medium size sharks.

Passengers from the cruise ships go straight to the shuttle coaches 100 metres from the gangplank, which take them to Gdansk. Nothing to see in Gdynia.

Well, it depends on people`s interests. I visited Gdynia Aquarium as a child, still keep black and white photos of our visit. Then, an obsessive animal watcher, I dreamt of visiting it again as an adult. Decades passed and I got a chance to take my kids to it and see how they got fascinated with it just like me in the past.

Of course, compared to world`s aquariums, this one is mediocre, but still a great attraction in Gdynia.

The Ladies are here in Tri City for one day. Perhaps they wouyld like to chat to some Polish gentlemen - not to kiddies at the bloody aquarium:):) they could always go down to the Bulwar, but if they don't want to hang drinking beer, what else is on offer? They could visit the Emigration museum just by their cruise ship (it's amazing) but they will be hungry and thirsty and eager to test their land legs.

I don't like Gdansk much. It's dirty and noisy and just another rebuilt 18th century merchant town (Konisberg was by all acounts much prettier). But the OPs will have much better adventures there, than in tedious small town Gdynia I would have said. Unless - as the person states, family was from Gdynia - in which case the OP can head up to Kamienna Gora on the funicular railway and grab a view of the port, walk along the beach to Redlowo, then walk back to the port, go along the Skwer Kościuszki ( where the aquarium is..) and visit the bars, with glorious sea views - and have a fish supper. It's all very staid for young people though.

Yes, right.. :)
But if they were lucky, they could run into nice Polish gentlemen in the Aquarium, too.

PS. To each etc. I would choose the lousiest aquarium over the most grandiose entertainment in the area being anywhere in the world. I had a fish tank as a boy and I know all species characteristics and needs by heart.

Okay well yall r terrible at suggesting things. Thankfully we have a polish friend who did some good suggesting for us. We ended up going to gdansk and went to the awesome festival there. It was beautiful, got to practice my polish and bought a lot of awesome handmade things!!!
