Safety:Very safe

Gdynia is considered to have a high level of safety for solo female travelers. The city has a comparatively low rate of crime and locals are known for their friendliness and helpfulness. However, as with travelling anywhere, practicing common sense such as avoiding unlit areas at night, keeping an eye on personal belongings and being aware of surroundings is recommended. Authorities are generally responsive and trustworthy in the face of any difficulties.


Gdynia offers numerous transportation options such as trams, buses, and ferries, which are all extensive and reliable, ensuring travelers can easily navigate the city. However, it might require a tiny bit of Polish language knowledge or a translation app to fully understand the routes and signs. Bike rentals are also popular during favorable weather conditions. The city is generally friendly towards solo female travelers, offering safe and well-lit public spaces.

Things to do:Moderate

Gdynia offers a moderate range of activities for travellers. The city is known for its vibrant maritime culture, with attractions like the Navy Museum and tall ship Dar Pomorza. Gdynia also boasts beautiful stretches of beach on the Baltic Sea, pleasant for a leisurely walk or a quick dip during warmer months. Adventure seekers can hike in the nearby Tricity Landscape Park. However, outside of these, it doesn't offer many diverse attractions compared to larger Polish cities. This small port town is less touristy but it might be an advantage for those seeking a quiet and relaxed Polish experience

Food:Above average

Gdynia offers a variety of gastronomic experiences. From hearty local Polish cuisine to more international options like Asian, Italian, and Middle Eastern, the food scene is diverse. Whether you prefer traditional comfort food or are interested in exploring modern culinary delights, Gdynia provides a wide range of foods suiting every pallet. What brings the score down slightly is the lack of vegan and vegetarian friendly options, which could have been more plentiful.


Gdynia, is quite budget-friendly, especially compared with many Western European cities. The cost of eating out, accommodation and public transportation is relatively cheap. However, the cost may vary depending on the season and personal travel style.

Solo travel experience

I can definitely recommend a visit and stay here. The food is great, the weather is nice, and the people are friendly. It's a wonderful city to explore. Tomorrow, I'm going to visit Hel and the next town along the seacoast. I'll definitely come back.
