Detailed data


The passenger and freight ferry terminal is located on the Obrońców Westerplatte Quay, near the port entrance and close to the centre of Gdańsk. Due to the cable-stayed bridge, the terminal is well connected with the Polish and international road network, in particular with the Gdańsk-Warsaw route (distance to Warsaw is 345 km) and the A1 motorway through the Gdańsk Southern Ring.

The Terminal infrastructure is dedicated for handling:

  • vessels transporting cargo in the ro-ro technology;
  • ferries;
  • passenger ships.

The Westerplatte Ferry Terminal serves regular passenger-car connections to Sweden. Two Polferries traverse the Gdańsk – Nynäshamn line (60 km from Stockholm). These are the M/F Wawel and M/F Nowa Star. The ferries belong to the Polish Baltic Shipping Company. Their decks include restaurants, cafés, conference rooms, cinemas, discos, grill bars as well as cosmetics, food and clothing shops. The Nova Star vessel can carry 1,215 passengers at a time, including 648 in 2- and 4-person cabins, while the M/F Wawel ferry (511 in accommodation cabins) can carry 1,000 passengers.

The Westerplatte Ferry Terminal is an open terminal – the Management Board of Port of Gdańsk Authority S.A. invites contractors interested in the establishment of regular shipping connections. It guarantees servicing ships simultaneously at three stands – each equipped with the ro-ro ramp.
