The Polish Maritime Museum in Gdańsk (PMM) is a national institution. Among many exhibits, two museum-ships in the collection are very popular attraction for visitors. The first is the "Sołdek", a bulk carrier, the first ship built in a Polish yard at 1949. The second one is the "Dar Pomorza", Poland's first sail-training ship (constructed in Hamburg at 1909). Apart from these large vessels, the Museum also has two fishing stall cutters, three historic yachts and over twenty traditional boats from Polish waters. In Poland there are institutions having warships. Such is the Polish Navy who keep the Błyskawica, a destroyer from the World War II (built in UK at 1936) presented in Gdynia.
