To visit ...

Sopot is one of the country’s most famous towns and is extremely fashionable particularly in the summer months when it often feels that half of the capital has decamped here to see and be seen.
The town’s reputation was built during the late years of the 19th century and the first few decades of the 20th when, as part of the German Empire and then as a part of the Free City of Gdansk, it became the summer home and playground for many of Europe’s ruling classes.


Today, Sopot is once again a hip and happening place with its trendy nightlife while its sandy and sheltered beaches and range of top class hotels and spas are once again attracting an international audience drawn by its beauty and value for money. Kilometres of cycle routes and forest paths also make it ideal for those who like active forms of relaxation while visiting in the warm summer months opens up loads of opportunities for things to do on the sea.
Visit off season in a laid-back atmosphere and find a pretty little town with some very good restaurants ...

The pier was built in 1827 by a doctor in Napoleon's army and has been renovated several times. At 511m, it's the longest in the Baltic region and the longest wooden pier in Europe  A spa garden with rounded pergolas and a fountain marks the entrance to the pier, from which a sandy beach stretches to either side.

While Poland is fast becoming a typical European country there are still certain traditions and laws which the foreign visitor should be aware of.
Gdansk has a thousand-year history, a location at the crossroads of important commercial and communication routes, an extensive port and mercantile traditions - all this makes it a meeting place of many cultures, nationalities and denominations. It is the historical capital of Gdańsk Pomerania and the largest city of Kashubia. The city was close to the former late medieval boundary between West Slavic and Germanic seized lands and it has a complex political history with periods of Polish rule, periods of German rule, and extensive self-rule, with two spells as a free city. Between the World Wars, the Free City of Danzig was in a customs union with Poland and was located between German East Prussia and the "Polish corridor" to the sea where the harbour of Gdynia grew up. Gdańsk has been part of modern Poland since 1945.
