This Polish city gives presents to all new residents

Register in Gdynia. Welcome to Gdynia. Get your presents and enjoy.

After successfully completing its first edition in 2018, the “Welcome to Gdynia" campaign was bound to be continued in 2019. The Polish city authorities encourage all future residents to register officially in Gdynia, by offering each new inhabitant an attractive welcome package.

The first edition of the "Welcome to Gdynia" campaign was launched on the occasion of the 92nd birthday of the city and lasted from February 12 to December 31, 2018. During this period, every person who registered in Gdynia as a permanent resident received a welcome package. Over 3,000 such packages were issued in the first campaign. As a result, there was an increase in the number of registered people by 26% (compared to the same period of 2017).

And as far as residents are concerned, their benefits are also considerable. Thanks to the welcome package, the new inhabitants of Gdynia have a chance to get to know better the place with which they have just bound their lives. As part of the welcome package, they receive:

  • a total of five passes allowing one-off, free admission to the Experiment Science Centre, Emigration Museum, Gdynia City Museum, Gdynia Film Centre;
  • a pass entitling them to pick up a ticket for Arka Gdynia football players;
  • a special brochure providing basic information about the other benefits that come with registering in Gdynia.

The tickets received in the welcome package are valid until the end of March 2020 with the exception of the entry to Arka players' match, which is valid until the end of the year. In addition, the local authorities like to inform all future residents that welcome packages granted in 2018 are similarly valid until the end of March this year, while the season ticket for the Arka Gdynia match has expired at the end of last year.
