Sopot is a small seaside resort on the Baltic Sea, between Gdansk and Gdynia, in the natural centre of the Tri-City's nearly one-million agglomeration, a place of rest and recreation, regarded as the summer capital of Poland.

All along the 4.5 km Sopot coastline there are clean and sandy beaches along which are scattered water slides, water and beach equipment rental shops, changing booths and showers. They are the venue of numerous sports and recreation events such as volleyball and beach football tournaments, happenings, shows and cross-country races

Most tourists stay here in summer when the town is bustling with activity, but if you are looking for peace and quiet you just need to turn into any side street to discover a completely different world - an intimate space of lovely apartment houses and villas surrounded by trees, old parks and gardens. More than 60% of the town is covered by green areas.
Beside the beach eateries have been built. Europe's longest wooden pier (511.5 m) juts out from Sopot beach. It is a place for strolls and festivities, but also the harbour of tourist passenger ships and water taxis and the site of numerous competitions such as the Sailing World Championship, Windsurfing Baltic Cup, Polish Cup and Sopot Triathlon.

    Sopot is a fun summer spot. Wish I had known about the Deco restaurant when I went w/ my friend, Gosia. We would have enjoyed that one...we're real coffee lovers.

    Very interesting things in Sopot. Too bad VT hasn't implemented yet the pinpoiting of the location on a map.
