Publications on pomorskie voivodship

With its charm of beautiful beaches, woodlands and lakes, the Pomorskie voivodship is located to the north of Poland on the Baltic Sea. The region is characterised by the urban area of the „tri-city”: Gdańsk - with its 1,000 year history, Gdynią – a modern port and industrial city and Sopot – Poland’s most popular seaside resort, with the longest wooden pier in Europe. A precious treasure in this land is the amber and creations from Polish amber, made by Pomorze’s artists and artisans, which can be found all over the world.

The one-thousand-year-old Gdańsk, with historical monuments, many  belonging to the List of World Heritage Sites, theatres, exhibitions, museums and a concert hall constitutes the centre of northern Poland cultural life. Gdynia, the youngest of the three urban areas and is in first place among Polish cities for caring for its residents.

The Pomerania region is a picturesque and rugged postglacial land with over 400 lakes, a scenic Szwajcaria Kaszubska and inhabitants called the Kashubs who preserved their own language and architectural style, including the culturally ethnic area of Kociewo, with its characteristic dialect and folklore.

The Pomorskie voivodship has traditionally been Poland’s “window unto the world”, rich in tradition and rapidly developing modernity, imported together with the continual flow of Merchant ships.
