Hel is a very interesting city with an amazing history: a fortress on the island, Vikings, a sunken town, fortifications on the coast, war, port, army, fishermen, tourists ... it is worth reading about the Hel Peninsula, which several hundred years ago was an archipelago of several islands. It also gives to thinking the history of Old Hel, which disappeared under the waters of the Puck Bay.
Hel has a very interesting history: once it was an island, the Vikings, a sunken city, a military fortress, a port
There is a very interesting Fisheries Museum in the church in Hel near the port.
The world looks completely different when you look at it from a different perspective - I like such views!
The End of the Peninsula is the Beginning of Poland - I like such sentences :-)
The sun was shining softly through the clouds, and buildings and the harbor were starting to emerge from the mists on this warm October morning in Hel.
Colors, architecture and the mesmerizing azure of the sea ... The color of the Baltic Sea is amazing!

Wiejska Street is a walking street in Hel with many shops with souvenirs, clothes, food and numerous bars and restaurants. In summer it is very busy but in the off-season it is completely quiet and peaceful.
The city of Hel is situated in a vast pine forest. I like walking around the city because in the dunes and nearby hiking trails you can find amazing trees and great photo landscapes.
