We are happy to be visited for recreational, health and entertainment reasons.

Ustka is known not only for its spa qualities, but also for fishing and fish processing as well as from the former shipyard. It is famous for its Baltic salmon, one of which even got its coat of arms, cod, smoked sprats, fried flounder and marinated herring.

Settlement near Ustka began in the Bronze Age, attributed to the population of the Lusatian culture. Ustka mentioned for the first time in 1310. Once again it was mentioned in a document from 1337, as a port belonging to Słupsk located on both sides of the estuary of the Słupia River. In the 14th century, seagoing ships were arriving from Ustka up to Słupsk. They were dragged by people walking along the banks of Słupia.

The evidence of the once vibrant sea trade in Ustka is the former grain granaries in the port. The port, whose piers and piers were built of wooden crates filled with stones, existed in Ustka in the mid-fourteenth century. The present appearance of the port is the result of a great investment in 1899-1903. Before the First World War, Ustka was the largest trading port between Gdańsk and Szczecin.

The first lighthouse was built in Ustka in 1871. In 1892, a red brick building with an octagonal tower was created to this day. During the Second World War she did not suffer any damage.

The seaside promenade park was established in 1875. At that time, the first decorative trees were planted here. Shortly thereafter, exclusive guest houses and restaurants were built along the promenade. One of the lovers of walks along the Ustka eastern beach was Prince Otto von Bismarck. The table at which he used to eat breakfasts stood in a place of honor in one of the restaurants on the promenade until 1945.

In the sixties of the 18th century, the Ustka Shipyard was opened. In 1794 Ustka had about 700 inhabitants

In 1871 Ustka found itself in Germany.

In 1911, the commune undertook the first tourist investments, modeled on the bathrooms in Sopot. In the following years, a number of guesthouses, villas and restaurants were created, and the development of the beach began. From the end of the 1860s until 1945, a rescue station of the German Society for Rescuing Rescue from the Sea (DGzRS) operated in Ustka.

During the period of the National Socialist governments, as part of the process of "unification", the executive power of the commune was strengthened. On April 1, 1935, the head of the commune received the title of mayor, and the municipal branch was replaced by a commune councilor appointed by several people. Before the outbreak of World War II, a training base for German troops was built near Ustka.

The outbreak of the war in September 1939 caused the expansion of the port to be suspended. Movement in the port almost froze, sometimes only the auxiliary Kriegsmarine units entered. Due to the closure of many water bodies, fishing was limited. At that time, work camps were located in Ustka, in which in the middle of 1944 there were about 230 prisoners of Polish, Soviet, French and Belgian nationalities.

After the Second World War, the first Polish Municipal Board began its work on May 11, 1945. From June 1945, a railway line to Słupsk was opened. The existing inhabitants had to leave Ustka.
