Gdynia is young and full of character, qualities inherited by its inhabitants coming from all sides of Poland. Here, everyone is at home!

Gdynia is a city of music, film and theater, full of clubs, cafes and restaurants. But Gdynia is also a city of sport. The Sports Gdynia initiative features thousands of active residents. Every year, they benefit from a wide range of programmes, so that everyone – regardless of age or ability – can feel the joy of sport.

The "Active Summer" campaign is very popular. It is a series of sport-related activities taking place on the Central Beach throughout the summer. Sun, sea, sand and good fun – it's tough to beat!

Gdynia's distinguishing features are renowned sports events and modern facilities. The city has teams that use them on a daily basis. You think Gdynia and Arka comes to mind, the most successful football club in Pomerania. The Yellow-Blue are currently playing in the City Stadium on Olimpijska Street, but to feel the unique atmosphere associated with the club, it is worth visiting the place where the team played years ago. On Ejsmonda Street, just steps from the sea, there is a legendary Górka on which the Arka supporters met. There you'll see an exhibition dedicated to the history of the club.

Since 2018, Arka has included as many as five teams at Poland's highest levels – not only football, but also rugby, men's and women's basketball and handball.

Gdynia residents appreciate their city for its interesting jobs, good schools and comfortable apartments. The city also features efficient transportation, making access to the sea, beaches, hills and forests easy. According to sociologists, citizens of Gdynia are the most satisfied with their residence of all Polish citizens.

Feel the unique atmosphere by immersing yourself in the modernist City Centre, sunny beaches or boulevards bustling with life. With everything on offer, you can easily understand why Gdynia residents are smiling so much.
