Marek Rintz, mayor of Puck, talks to Barbara Deręgowska about the town as a tourist destination.

What can a tourist coming to Puck expect to find?
First of all, fish freshly caught in the Bay of Puck. Apart from this, we do our best to offer as many tourist attractions as possible. Previously, Puck was chiefly a port town. The residents were fishermen and didn't have to look for extra work, for instance by developing tourism. Today we are focusing on our history and our location along the Bay of Puck. Puck's history dates back to the early Middle Ages, as proved by the sunken trading port from the 7th century. You can learn about the region's traditions at the Florian Ceynowa Puck Region Museum. The historical parish church in Puck, the Church of Peter and Paul the Apostles, built in the 15th century by the Teutonic Order, is one of the oldest historic buildings in the county. We also recommend the traditional Saints Peter and Paul Fishermen's Fair and the accompanying boat pilgrimage.

Is it true there's always a crowd at your marina?
Puck has always been a mecca for sailors. The Bay of Puck is a safe and shallow body of water, warmer than the Baltic. It attracts aquatic sports enthusiasts. From May to September, this is a veritable paradise for those who enjoy yachting, swimming, windsurfing and kitesurfing. It's always windy here. Our marina is an excellent harbor for yachts sailing to Denmark, Germany, Scandinavia and the Baltic states. We want to expand and modernize it using European Union funds. The yacht port is always full; there are no vacancies from April to October. However, we never refuse sailboats a stopover. If there's no room at the marina, we will find a space in the fishing port. We plan to build modern hotels. We recently opened some cycling trails, next to new hiking trails for pedestrians. This completes the cycling trail leading from Puck to Hel. In the future, cyclists will also be able to speed along new routes to Gdynia and Wejherowo.
