Sopot

The beach resort town of Sopot lies 12km from Gdansk on Poland's northern coastline.

It can be reached by regular train connections from the two neighbouring cities of Gdansk and Gdynia. The closest airport is Gdansk Lech Walesa Airport, a 20 minute taxi ride (circa 50 Zloty) away.

Huge numbers of tourists are attracted to the town in the summer months, attracted by the long sandy beach and the numerous bars, cafes and restaurants that line the town's main pedestrian street, Bohaterow Monte Cassino.

The town's pier (the "Molo") is the longest wooden pier in Europe, stretching as it does 645m into the Baltic Sea. The pier (entrance fee: 2.50 Zloty) makes for a pleasant stroll at any time of day or night, and boat trips to Gdansk, Gdynia and Hel leave from the end of the pier.

    I hope I will have time for a short visit to Sopot while I'm in Gdansk. Looks nice with a stroll on the pier and along the beach.

      If you wake up early enough, and follow the itinirary I sent you, you should have time to see it, the same day as Westerplatte. I would take a cab. It will cost you more, but it will be fast. You can always take train on the way back.
      There is a 7 zloty entrance fee for the pier (if it'll be open). I would deffinately check out the Grand Hotel, and Monte Casino.

    Interesting to know that there is a "Chinese" hotel in Sopot. If I am ever there, will definitely check it out :)
