Grzegorz Kotowicz President of the Polish Canoe Federation

It is an honour to host the best athletes from all over the world and I am sure that the event will be organized at the highest level. I am convinced that it will be an unforgettable experience for all participants – filled with emotions and new friendships.
I also hope that this year’s World Championships will increase the popularity of the discipline around the world.

Welcome to Gdynia
Gdynia is a young, beautiful and rapidly developing city in northern Poland and an important seaport on the Baltic Sea coast. It is referred to as “a city built on sea and dreams” since its foundation was the aftermath of Poland regaining independence after years of enslavement. On the sands of the Baltic Sea beach, a modern harbor city was built “from scratch”.
Nowadays, Gdynia is inhabited by almost a quarter of a million people and the vast majority ofthem are proud to be living here. Gdynia’s citizens value their city for the ease of finding attractive jobs, good education, comfortable apartments, reliable public transport, safety and availability of services – not to mention the sea, beaches, hills and forests right on their doorstep. Add to this the highest annual number of sunny days and you will meet the most satisfied Polish citizens,
Gdynia is beautiful at any time of the year, but it is in the summer when the lush greenery of the forests and the blue sea turn it into the most beautiful city in Poland. You can take a deep breath here, because there is always a light, fresh breeze.
Visit Gdynia and taste the happiness! And if you are already here, immerse yourself in the atmosphere of this amazing city and come back as many times as you wish!
