Władysława Rogińska, A fishing port, 1951

The Rogińskis by the Baltic Sea – a new temporary exhibition in the Granaries on Ołowianka Island


The fact that a bond of marriage which unites two artists may have an inspirational influence on their artistic work has been proven by such couples as Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera as well as Auguste Rodin and Camille Claudel.

Włodzimierz Szpinger, Where Okeanos lives, triptych (middle)

Where Okeanos lives – painting of Włodzimierz Szpinger


If Hieronymus Bosch had been a diver, he would probably have painted like Włodzimierz Szpinger, this is what connoisseurs of the artist's works claim. A clean palette of intense colours, a strong sense of humour and unusual inhabitants of a mystical underwater world. We are delighted to invite you to a vernissage of the artist, who was granted with a passport to the underwater world by Okeanos himself.

What does the model of "The Sacrifice of Abraham" conceal?


A scale model of a 17th century shipyard, the most valuable models of historic ships, original shipbuilding tools recovered from shipwrecks, 17th century paintings – these are some of the most important elements of a new permanent exhibition organized at the National Maritime Museum, displaying development of the European shipbuilding – from the 16th to 18th centuries.

Indestructible "Kumka IV"

Indestructible "Kumka IV"


"Kumka IV" was intended to be like a plan: fast, light, watertight, and in addition, cheap in construction, with welded metal sheets used as material. When Tadeusz Sołtyk, a 28-year-old engineer, was designing a yacht for his own use, his goal was reaching two years of her operation before she would be defeated by corrosion. "Kumka IV", however, survived through the war and outlived her designer. In two years, she will be celebrating her 80th birthday in the Shipwreck Conservation Centre in Tczew, which is currently under construction.

OPTY - yacht which sailed around the world

OPTY - yacht which sailed around the world


A solitary cruise, a murderous struggle against time and illness, an obsession to sail round the world without any help or support, with only a yacht and oneself to rely on. Leonid Teliga is still recognized as a symbol of a romantic struggle and an extraordinary sea adventure. Few sailors, before or after Teliga, managed to achieve as much – to fully devote their lives to sailing.

New Life of the Yacht "Dal"


She lost her mast in a cyclone. She was a "star" of the Chicago World's Fair as well as a cause of disputes between consecutive owners. Laminated with plastic many years ago, she has been waiting for conservation which would restore her original design from the 1930s.
