Sopot - called "the summer capital of Poland" - is a small resort on the Bay of Gdańsk, between Gdańsk ang Gdynia, at the centre of the almost one-million Tri-City conurbation and the Pomerania province.
Thanks to the forestes, the streams trickiling downhill, and its unique microclimate conditions and abundant spa water resources - Sopot has become a tourist destination known across the whole Europe. Located between the edge of the hills and the Bay of Gdańsk, surrounded from the east by the forest of the Tri - City Landscape Park, the town has preserved its unique character, also as a sanctuary for rare plant and animals species.
Clean, sandy beaches stretchs along the 4,5 km of Sopot shoreline, into which the Europe's longest wooden pier cuts in, reaching 511,5 m into the sea - a place for strolls and cultural events and the same time a marina and mooring for cruise ships.
Most tourists come here in summer when the town is vibration with life, but if they wish a calm and respite it is still enugh to turn into one of the side streets to find oneself in a completely differend world - a cosy world of charming townhouses and villas surrounded by trees, garden and heritage parks.
