Hel Peninsula Party

A cocktail party and a meeting with the Hel Peninsula Party for many years has been taking place on the Hotel’s viewing balcony.

It is an annual meeting of friends, who, since their early days, have been spending their holidays on Hel Peninsula. Story of this friendship has been described by Krzysztof Pasierbiewicz in his books,  “Historia Helskiej Balangi” (The Story Of Hel Peninsula Party”) and “Podaj Hasło!” (Password!).

Annualy the Party has been visited by a group of elite Polish scientists and artists, such as: Ewa Wiśniewska, Magdalena Zawadzka, Joanna Szczepkowska, Barbara Burska, Grażyna Hase,  Janusz Gajos with his wife, Zbigniew Zapasiewicz, Janusz Morgerstern, Andrzej Bober, and a group of following professors: Iwona Rummel-Bulska (ONZ environment consultant), Joanna Kurczewska (history expert), Hanna Pałecka (architect), Zofia Rummel-Syska (management), Jan Woleński (philozopher), Krzysztof Pałecki (legal science), Jacek Kurczewski (sociologist), Witold Różyłło (cardiologist), Janusz Gołaś (science), Wawrzyniec Wawrzyniak (environment protection), and a variety of other people, staying on Hel anonymously.

Ryszard Reiff, back in 1981 was one of the few members of the National council who were not in favor of introducing the state of war.
