General information:
Puck is a town and fishing harbour located in Puck Bay, near the beginning of Hel Peninsula. The town has a population about 11,800.
Puck is a Kashubian town, picturesquely situated on the high shore of the Little Sea, as the local fishermen nicknamed Puck Bay. Puck makes the summer rest quiet. The contact with hundreds of years tradition, history and Kashubian culture, with valuable monuments of architecture on the one hand and charm of the sea on the other does not allow visitors to feel bored.
Mention of Puck reaches back to the beginning of the 13th century. Its municipal charter was granted as early as in 1348. The relic from the 14th century is Gothic parish church of great beauty. In 1454 Puck became a possession of Gdańsk authorities. Puck is one of the oldest Polish sea harbours. In the 16th and 17th centuries it was a main Polish naval port.
After the second partition of Poland, Prussian troops moved into the town. In the beginning of the 20th century a German aircraft base for testing Zeppelins, existed here.
Presently the harbour does not play any significant role, due to its location at the shallows of Puck Bay, which is connected with deep water of Gdańsk Bay. The harbour serves small fishing vessels and yachts. Puck has a small auxiliary industry serving the fishing fleet. There is some tradition in the production of propelling machinery for cutters. There is no access to the port in winter. The average number of ice-days during the year is 77.6. The town is connected to the general railway system.
The historical buildings of Puck include the tenement houses from the 18th cen-tury situated all around the market square and the former wooden hospital built in 1720-25 with the Town Museum in it.
