A favourite of local Gdynians who are out on a pleasure stroll to take in the Baltic seabreeze, Bulwar Nadmorski (Seaside Boulevard) is more than just a pedestrian strip. If you look over the seaside edge, you can see the curved base, which acts as a breakwater against big waves eroding the coastline. Baltic weather is known for its severity, and the first concrete path, built in the 1930s, was actually destroyed in a huge storm in 1949. So far, the newest version, dating from 1969, continues to withstand nature's worst! In summer, when the weather is considerably better, the bulwar often hosts market stalls, mobile stages and live music during festival events.
