interesting facts:
After the World War I, based on Treaty of Versailles in 1919 Poland got territorial access to Baltic Sea. It was about 70-kilometre long coastline without any seaport. On 23rd September 1922 Polish Parliament approved the construction of the seaport located in fishery village named Gdynia. Today Gdynia with its 250,000 inhabitants is 12th largest Polish town.
