Gdynia is a city in the Pomeranian Voivodeship of Poland and an important seaport of Gdańsk Bay on the south coast of the Baltic Sea and the gateway to Gdansk, which was rebuilt after extensive damage during World War II , and today is widely known as the city of glowing amber and gothic cathedrals. The Old Town is amazing with gothic, renaissance and baroque styles of architecture – the most famous modern day site is the Gate No 2, at the Gdeansk Lenin Shipyards where protesting workers were fired upon by the Communist regime in 1970 lighting a spark that would ultimately lead to Polish independence.
