The port and the city of Gdynia were built because this was the political and economic necessity of the Polish state reborn after World War I. The success of the construction was determined by the determination of the state and the enthusiasm of the citizens, and the construction of Gdynia is the beginning of Poland’s maritime tradition and its modern society. It is also an outstanding example of modernist architecture.
