Monument in Gdynia is not the best description you say? Well, there is not much more information I could get about that even though I was visiting Gdynia with locals. The only thing they could tell me, is that it comes from the communistic times. Close to it is the Joseph Conrad Monument, but I doubt that they are connected. Maybe you can help me with some information?
The real challenge about this photo, apart from the obvious that it’s taken against the sun, was that it’s taken from a moving ship. We took a tour around the port on some strange tourist boat which gave me that kind of unique angle to shoot the Dar Pomorza in Gdynia. Read more!
That Beauty is over 100 years old. It was in 1909 when it was built in Hamburg and named Prinzess Eitel Friedrich. After WW I the ship was taken as reparation by Great Britain and brought to France. But because they didn’t want to refurbish it, they sold it and the buyer was Poland. In Poland the Dar Pomorza was used as a training ship for long time and today it is a Museum ship in Gdynia.
