The town was nice but way too packed, guess summer is not the best time to visit... The forts and bunkers had historic interest and free to enter. I just couldn't cope with the thousands of tourists there, it was too much.

A small, cosy holiday resort at the end of Poland. Beautiful beaches. Also a unique occasion for the fans of the WWII, as lots of old ruins from that time still to discover.

Hel is a nice peninsula, however, an access is horrible. If you wish to stay for at least one hour in a traffic jam, Hel is a right place during august. Besides traffic jam, it is difficult to find a parking place - parking lots...More
