Photo Gallery » Gdynia from a bird's eye view

Gdynia is for some people a city from the sea, for others a city of dreams ... for me Gdynia is a city in the forest, on the hills and by the sea. I lived in Gdynia for 25 years. I know this city quite well and that's why it was not easy for me to start photographing Gdynia. It is such a paradox - the most difficult to photograph known places. I missed the "fresh effect", the sense of observation is dulled by everyday life. I took pictures in Gdynia many times but I was not happy with them. I was always missing something ... The photos seemed too obvious ... For over a dozen years I have already lived outside the city. There were big changes in Gdynia. New roads, shopping centers, sports arenas, cinemas and even something like Sea Towers ... I've got a distance over the years. Now I look at "my city" with the eye of a tourist who sees more ...
I have always liked to see Gdynia from above ... From the observation tower on Witomino, from the escarpment above the suburban railway station on Wzgórze Nowotki (now St. Maximilian's Hill), from Kamienna Góra or the rooftops of the skyscrapers that we entered ... The city from above and from a distance has such a strange magic - you can not hear the city noise, you can not see exactly the cars and people - the effect of watching a live and very precisely made model. Without participating in urban life, from outside, without interaction, like a spectator on an endless spectacle.
Now I have the opportunity to see the city from my favorite perspective without going to the roofs. That's why I decided after a few years to come back to photographing the city in which I grew up. I also recommend you a gallery: Winter in Gdynia - there you can see the city in completely different colors.

Viewpoint Kamienna Gora

Most tourists visiting Gdynia will probably be here. I have always been surprised that this is a lookout point but you can not see much ... Only when we get up above the trees is the panorama of the city begins to amaze ... The perfect place for a view tower - but there is a cross ...
See the entire panorama of Gdynia on spherical photography.

Gdynia Witomino

Gdynia Witomino

The Gdynia district of Witomino is located on post-glacial moraine hills and surrounded by forests. The center of Gdynia is less than 3 km. Just go down ul. Kielecka, go under the railway tracks. I know exactly this route because I lived in this estate for many years ... and how much time we spent in these woods and what was happening there ... long to tell ... "patch rallies" on bicycles, swings on trees, trenches, bunkers , huts, bonfires in the valley behind the block ... and in winter, sleds and downhill skiing from steep forest hills ...

Nowotko Hill

Nowotko Hill

I lived in Gdynia since the late 70s of the twentieth century and then it was the Nowotka Hill. From 1990, the name was changed to St. Maximilian Hill. This short history of this place perfectly shows the changes in Poland that have taken place after the transformation of the system. The communist was changed into Saint. There is no doubt who fought with whom and for what.
