Overview

Situated in the Puck County in Pomeranian Voivodeship since 1999, previously in Gdańsk Voivodeship (1975–1998), Władysławowo is a sea port and a popular seaside holiday destination.

The gmina (urban-rural municipality) of Władysławowo consists of the town Władysławowo (with a district Cetniewo) and seven villages: Chałupy (to the east, on the Hel peninsula), Chłapowo, Rozewie, Jastrzębia Góra, Ostrowo, Karwia and Tupadły. Several of these places serve as popular seaside resorts.

Poland's northern extremity is situated in Jastrzębia Góra, marked by the Gwiazda Północy ("Northern Star") monument, which stands on a cliff overlooking the beach that is the actual most northerly point. The nearby headland of Rozewie was formerly believed to be the country's most northerly point, prior to measurements carried out in December 2000.[1]

In 1634 engineer Fryderyk Getkant designed a fort called Władysławowo located on the Hel Peninsula, several km east of today's town of Władysławowo.

Władysławowo and Władysławowo Port are PKP railway stations in the town.
