Nowy Port (Neufahrwasser) is a harbour settlement established at the end of the 18th century. It was created according to the Prussian King Frederick II's concept as a competitive port towards Gdańsk. A dynamic period of growth fell at the beginning of the 19th century. The majority of the present historical development dates back to the 19th and the beginning of the 20th centuries. Nowy Port used to be vibrant with life for years. Apart from fishery cottages there also used to be inns and taverns offering numerous amusements. At presents buildings of the former settlement, even though neglected to a large extent, are covered by restoration care. They are located within a considerably vast area of the quarter. The most interesting passages are situated in the eastern part of the district. In the western part of Nowy Port buildings of the harbour settlement are giving in to more modern buildings and blocks of flats.
