Sopot – a Polish beach town


Sopot is a small city located near Gdansk. It is actually only a 20 minutes train ride away, and it is a very popular tourist destination because of its sandy beaches. We didn’t plan to go to Sopot, but we decided to take a spontaneous trip when we woke up to sunny weather.Sopot is also famous for its pier, which is the longest wooden pier (500 meters) in Europe. Another sight is the crooked house, which is pretty special – just check out the pictures!

It is very easy to reach Sopot from Gdansk. You take the train (different trains that are stopping in Sopot, but they are easy to find) from Gdansk Glowny, a central train station (5 minutes walking distance from Hotel Mercure in Gdansk). The train will take approx. 20 minutes, and cost you 8 zloty (return ticket), which is about 20 NOK. You can buy your ticket from the ticket machines on the platforms.

All in all, Sopot is a nice city, but it might be a bit boring to stay here for your entire vacation. It is a good day trip from Gdansk, though – especially in good weather!
