The capital of Kashubia invites you to explore the history of Wejherowo and Kashubian traditions on a guided city tour. The Jakub Wejher Square, with the monument of its founder in its centre, is the heart of the city. From his base, you can see the city hall in the south of the square. Daily at 12:00, 15:00 and 18:00 o clock the Kashubian hymn is played here. In the western part of the square rises the Collegiate Church of the “Holy Trinity” and in the Northwest stands the Remus Memorial, which commemorates the heroes of the greatest Kashubian novel by Aleksander Majkowski ‘The life and adventures of Remus’.
You can complete your city tour with a visit to a restaurant or a confectionery and taste Kashubian specialities. There’s also a brewery on the market square where you can enjoy local beer. Some stores sell Kashubian products, which are wonderful gifts for your dearest. Wejherowo organizes yearly in December a cozy Christmas market. A few months later, during Easter, the market square is adorned with a several meters high Easter egg decorated with Kashubian patterns.
The “Kashubian Notes” city tour will bring you to the most interesting monuments and beautiful historical and modern objects of Wejherowo.
If you want to rest you should walk from the market square through Klasztorna Street towards the Municipal Park (Aleksander Majkowski Park). In the Park you will be charmed by old trees, flower beds and pergolas. There’s an impressive fountain, an adventurous children’s playground, Nordic walking trails, a hiking trail set out by the Tourist Office of PTTK, as well as a fitness trail with fitness equipment. The Park connects the historic centre of Wejherowo with the Calvary. The Calvary includes 26 chapels scattered on morainic hills, linked by an 4.6 km-long pilgrimage route beginning at the monastery church.
From the Tri-City (Gdańsk, Gdynia, Sopot) you will reach Wejherowo not only by car, but also with the regular railway line SKM (Szybka Kolej Miejska). In addition, there is a 75 km-long cycle path through the Tri-City Landscape Park from Gdańsk to Wejherowo.
