Wejherowo County (Polish: powiat wejherowski) is a unit of territorial administration and local government (powiat) in Pomeranian Voivodeship, northern Poland, on the Baltic coast. It came into being on January 1, 1999, as a result of the Polish local government reforms passed in 1998. Its administrative seat and largest town is Wejherowo, which lies 36 kilometres (22 mi) north-west of the regional capital Gdańsk. The county also contains the towns of Rumia, lying 11 km (7 mi) east of Wejherowo, and Reda, 7 km (4 mi) east of Wejherowo. Rumia, Reda and Wejherowo are contiguous, and are referred to as the Kashubian Tricity, an allusion to the larger Tricity area centred on Gdańsk.
