Sopot

Sopot (Zoppot) is the smallest of the three cities forming Trojmiasto. This town has now about 40 000 inhabitants. It is traditionally known as a resort town (earlier called the Riviera of the North) and so has the usual seaside activities on offer. It is known in the area for it’s pretty main street and the Molo (or pier) – very long and sticking several hundred metres into Gdansk Bay. Try fresh fish along the beach but beware – they measure chips by the gram in this neck of the woods and so you can expect 200g exactly. I have known burly chip shop ladies plucking a chip off my plate before taking my money in the search for the exact 200g plateful. Still delicious, though.

In the morning go to Monciak – the most famous pedestrian street in Poland with thousands of caffee, pubs and restaurants, in the noon go to the beach ( there are very nice sand beaches), in the afternoon go for a walk or biking along the seaside, in the evening don’t miss the best party in the Tricity (SPATiF, Mandarynka, Soho, Copacabana at the beach).

It is rather impossible to sleep when you are in Sopot.
