Where to Stay
Deciding where to stay in a town like Sopot should depend on what kind of vacation you would ideally like to have. If you’re looking for a beachside apartment, then you should check out the Dolny Sopot or central district of the city. Within this district you will find the longest wooden-framed pier in Europe. The residential architecture in this area is primarily from the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, with Art Nouveau and eclectic houses, villas and some new apartment buildings. Wherever you stay in Sopot you won’t be too far from where all the best sites and attractions are. Due to the relatively small size of the town, most areas can be accessed either on foot or by public transport. Why not book a wonderfully tranquil beachside apartment with Wimdu, and have the beautiful Baltic Sea on your doorstep? With so many options available, Wimdu can offer you the best accommodation that money can buy.
Things to do
Although Sopot is a relatively small city, there’s a lot going on. You’re bound to find a wonderful range of fun-filled activities to enjoy while staying in the city. Why not go on a biking trip in the nearby magnificent Tricity Landscape Park, or enjoy swimming and relaxation in the Sopot Aquapark? Amongst the landmarks that the city has to offer, you should check out the beautiful wooden pier, which is the longest wooden pier in Europe, the Heroes of Monte Cassino Street, a walkway which is always full of artists and tourists. Along Monte Cassino Street, visitors will find the famous and unusual Crooked House - an amazing yet bizarre architectural marvel. The wonderful Sopot lighthouse offers magnificent views over the Sopot pier and the town. If you fancy getting closer to nature, the North Park may appeal to you, where you can take walks or explore the many cycling routes.
Eating and Drinking
Deciding where to eat and drink while holidaying in a new city can be somewhat of a challenge. It is always worth checking out online reviews to find the best venues to make sure that you don’t fall into any tourist trips and merely enjoy your evenings to the absolute maximum. Sopot features a wide selection of magnificent restaurants serving delicious local wares. Unsurprisingly for a seaside town, the regional cuisine relies heavily on the fresh catches that are hauled in each day. Around the pier you’ll find many fried fish restaurants offering some delicious mouth-watering treats. In terms of nightlife, the town also has rather a lot to offer. Many of the best bars and cafes can be found along the vibrant Monte Cassino Street, with lots of pleasant little spots to enjoy a bottle of Polish beer or a cup of coffee.
Public transport throughout Sopot and beyond is managed by the same public transport organisations that operate bus routes around Gdansk and Gydnia. While staying in the small seaside town you’ll no doubt find that it is easy to get around many of the sights and attractions on offer simply by foot, though if you need to travel further afield then rest assured that public transport is well covered. A ride from Sopot to nearby Gdansk should take no more than 15 minutes by bus or by train. Gydnia is also a mere 15-minute bus ride away. In terms of air travel, the nearest airport to Sopot is the Gdansk Lech Walesa Airport. A transfer from here to the quaint seaside town should take no more than half an hour by taxi. A coach service also operates regularly, connecting nearby Gdansk to the airport terminals.
