After Gdansk photo tour I'd like to show you Sopot, all pics were taken in August 2004, I hope you'll like it

Where is Sopot?


Sopot is situated on the edge of the geographical area known as Pomerania, on the south-western shore of the Gdańsk Bay.
Sopot has a great geographical location - lying between the beautiful woods and 200 m Heights of the TriCity Landscape Park, and the numerous sand beaches of the Bay of Gdańsk.
It's also the central part of Northern Poland’s biggest aglomeration known as TriCity. The centre of Sopot is 11 kilometres from the centre of Gdańsk and 10 kilometres from the centre of Gdynia.



Lets start our tour from the Upper Sopot located almost inside the Landscape Park

Hotel Opera (by the famous Forest Opera)

Sopot has developed its unique style of architecture, which is being continued in all those new buildings. Look at Rezydent Hotel - you wouldn't have guessed it was build just a couple of years ago. Great spot for holiday, lots of tourist over there.

Second Polish aglomeration :) (admitelly my favourite aglomeration) This translation "Tricity" is wonderful!!!!
However, I can write, that Augustów district is the richest district on the world*
*(only for districts with "ó" in name and more than 100 lakes)
Although, Julius Cezar said: "Better to be the first on the country, than the second in Rome"
I get at you, excuse me :D

Nice resort obvisouly.

But I am sceptical about polish threads in S&B forum. I think it should be moved to EE forum.
Polish Baltic coast is much more longer than Lithuanian or Estonian ;) So when we are talking about Polish cities located on Baltic coast it is justified to post the thread in this subforum. That's my opinion.

No, this has nothing to do with the Baltic coast/Baltic sea. Simply this forum is about Scandinavian and Baltic states.
But I do not mind to see these pictures. Sopot is absolutely great, it looks urban and with rich vacationer history. When it started as vacation spot? And is Sopot something as the place for "rich and spoiled" in Poland?
