Photographer's Note

Jastarnia Harbour- Built in the years 1926-1931, it was the firs and entirely Polish marine investment project in the Second Republic of Polish. Reconstructed after Word War Two, it functions as a fishing base, a training center of sailors and passenger marina. The center of the Hel Peninsula, healt resort teaming with life and colours featuring modern hotels and guesthouses, throngs of tourist, music coming from everyware, and unusual atmosphere of fishing villages noticeable everyware, with boats and fishing boats mooring at harbours and marinas, fishing nets getting dry in farmyards and on the beaches, ubiquitous smell of smoked fish. Can one see and feel all these things in one place? Yes. There is no other place on the Polish coast, where tradition and carefully fostered Kshubian culture merge with modernity and thinking about the future. We are in the municipal community of Jastarnia, which includes three localities, i.e. seaside resort of Jurata, former fishing village of Kuźnica, and the community center - Jastarnia.
