The STEPHAN BATORY was one of the most popular transAtlantic liners of the 50s and 60s. N. American ports during the summer included Quebec City, Montreal and New York.

As a tribute to her a centre was built in Gdynia approx 2 years ago but the same as anywhere else in the world their were big changes and it was turned into a shopping mall.The inside is the only resemblance of that splendid ship due to the shape of the shop fronts.The name still bears great pride in the hearts of the seamen who sailed in her and the name will never be forgotten
