The Pier in Orłowo is perhaps not so well known, and not that long as the pier in Sopot, but it is certainly worth a visit. Walking around it you can enjoy ships in the distance and admire the famous characteristic Orlowsko Cliff, known from postcards. And when you are tired of walking, you can sit on one of the white benches on the pier.


Near the entrance there are avenues, includes benches and a small playground for children. Before entering on the left side of the pier is a bench - monument of Antoni Suchanek. It shows the artist sitting on a park bench and mired in work.

For those who like long walks on the beach you can walk by the seasied from Orlowo to Sopot.


Good to know:

The first pier built in Orłowio was established in 1934 in just two months, using the simplest techniques. It was 430 meters long and was designed for mooring vessels of the White Fleet. A powerful winter storm in 1949 devastated more than half of the structure. In 1953, the rest of the pier has been renovated. Currently, it has a length of 180 m
In the years 2006-2007 a comprehensive renovation project took place on the pier. The changes were the new design around the piers and wooden piles were reinforced with steel bands.
Nearby there is the Summer Stage of the Municipal Theatre of Gdynia, where you can see one of the shows.
