Bench of a Kashubian Couple

  plac Kaszubski, Gdynia     04 Mar 2024
The Bench of a Kashubian Couple on Plac Kaszubski, the centre point of Gdynia, is a charming site for visitors and locals who are lucky enough to take notice of it. But the lack of any descriptive plaque keeps their identity somewhat of a mystery. The only exception a quaint description in Polish on a folded letter sticking out of the old man's jacket pocket:

Translated from Polish, the letter reads:
"Jakub, if you build a small room for me on the top floor, I will be able to see you when you return from the sea – Elżbieta".
