Gdynia Orłowo Pier
Molo w Gdyni Orłowie
|Official name||Molo w Juracie|
|Total length||180 metres (590 ft)|
The first pier in Orłowo was built during World War I. The pier functioned as a Pleasure Pier and as a promenade for the nearby resort. The pier was expanded during the 1920s (the region was then part of the Second Polish Republic); the pier had the length of 115 metres and functioned as a jetty for small ships. In the late 1920s, as the popularity of Orłowo grew, so did competition with the nearby resort of Sopot (then part of the Free City of Danzig); which led to the pier being expanded to 430 metres in length. In June, 1935 the resort of Orłowo became a borough of Gdynia.
Nearby to the pier, is located the Summer Stage of the Gdynia Theatre (Scena Letnia Teatru Miejskiego w Gdyni) and the Orłowo Cliff.
