Hel Things to Do: 39 reviews and 88 photos


A lot of things in Hel are new and in place to cater to the needs of tourists. This is inevitable in a pretty seaside town such as this one and so when you come across evidence of Hel as it used to be, when it was just a Baltic fishing port, it is quite exciting. Almost at the end of the pier, on the wall of one of the warehouses, I came across this mural. It really made me stop and think of the fishermen who earned their living from this sea and sailed in and out of this harbour at all hours and in all weather. Nearby, there is some modern graffiti which somehow heightens the appeal and dignity of this simple black and white decorative offering.

Directions: At the outer end of the pier.
