Pier was built by initiative Napoleon’s army doctor in 1827, pier had numerous renovations. Visitors gather here to see gulf of Gdansk, to enjoy sunrises and sunsets.When I was there I was suprised that I needed to pay to go on pier. It...more

"Comfortable and quiet, Weranda Pod Kogutem has the traditional Polish food you've been looking for at prices that can't be matched in any other sit-down restaurant. The combination of an exceedingly friendly staff and extremely welcoming chairs and leather sofas will make you feel right at home. The soup of the day is always a special treat and...more
In August 2006 we had delicious meal in Tawerna Rybacki. We were seating right on the balcony on the third floor, overlooking pedestrian boardwalk and the Sopot beach.The balcony was very small, only two tables, so it made us feel "special" hehe.Food was great, service good and the view fantastic. We had a three fish combo in some kind of...more

The Monciak pedestrian street is the easiest place to find a restaurant or cafe to your liking, the street is literally lined with them! I chose Cafe Vergnano and had a chicken salad for lunch. It was delicious, so was their Vergnano coffee! One downside: the service was rather slow in the busy lunch time which was a bit annoying...more
The cafe is located in the upper part of Boh. Monte Cassino, called “in between tunnels” (you turn right behind the stationary shop into a yard filled with flowers). A place where time has stopped; an apartment in an old-Cracow style with a fireplace, sentimental photos, grandma’s armchairs, art-deco paintings on the walls and flowers on the...more
If you want to spend nice evening I would recommend first to go for a drink to a beach bar (open during summer), where there are fake, but funny palm trees, swimmingpool and the best mojito drink ever!Then you can dance in many clubs throuout the Sopot- In my opinion the best one is called Mandarynka (Mandarin) and the club at the end of the...more
Being a seaside place, Sopot has a lot to offer for nightlife: bars, pubs with live music, discoes, clubs, gay clubs, jazz clubs, you name it... They are scattered all over the town but quite many are located in the Monciak and in the vicinity of the pier. Some nightlife events may be taking place right on the beach! I can't recommend any nightlife...more
We rented bikes in Brzezno, for 38 zloty, and biked the 3 miles to Sopot. The ride is really nice, and there are a lot of cool places to see along the way. The terrain is flat, and the bike path isn't too crowded, so it's an easy ride. With a bike, you can travel at your own pace. It took us about an hour, with stops. Without stops, you can...more

Sopot is a place of leisure and if you've had enough of the beach life in summer or enough shopping and strolling on Monte Cassino, you'll have plenty of places to choose from to grab a cup of coffee or tea and a tasty pastry. I had a coffee at Cafe Art Deco, which is at the upper (western) end of Monte Cassino (you have to go under the tracks)....more
What kind of BS is this? All the pictures I've seen of this house were taken in either winter or spring, when the trees had no leaves on them. I didn't realize this, until I took a close look at a post card of it.
So here is what happened. We kept asking people how to get there, and couldn't find it. I didn't realize there would be a huge tree in front of it, so we must've walked by it like 5 times, and didn't see it. I finally spotted it on the way back, and realized that there is a huge tree blocking the view.
This place is stupid. It was purposely built as a fun tourist attraction to take pictures of, but you can't even see the darn thing, except in winter and spring, when there are no tourists there, because some idiots decided to plant trees in front of it.
It was a good idea, but they need to cut the trees down, or at least trim them, so you can actually see the darn thing.
Unique Suggestions: Go there in spring or winter, when the trees have no leaves, and bring the kids.
Fun Alternatives: Any other place in Sopot.
Sopot is very popular among tourists because of typical sea resort’s activities it offers. I mean sunbathing, strolling along the sea shore, or hanging around in the main street colloquially called “Monciak” by the Polish . There are many clubs, restaurants and cafes. But if you want something different, then get to Sopot Wyścigi (...more
Sopot is popular for water sports and it has a few equipment rentals if you don't bring your own. The Bay of Gdansk is especially popular among windsurfers and boat sailers (I've selected only 'Boating/Sailing' in the tip theme). For equipment rental try the Sopocki Klub Zeglarski which also does courses for beginners :-)more
It was a beautiful October day when I visited Sopot, but it was after all, OCTOBER, so I didn't spend much time on the beach. I did, however, walk out on the sand just so I could stick my finger in the Baltic Sea. The water was cold and the sand was very soft. I imagine in the summertime, this would be an excellent beach. It's very wide, with...more
Every sea country has place, called “summer capital”, in Lithuania it is Palanga, Latvia – Jurmala, Estonia – Parnu, Poland actually gives advantage to Sopot.Sopot has one of advantages to other seaside places – it is sheltered by forested area and Hel peninsula, so it makes water warmer than in other places in Baltics. What is more, it is easily...more
Just before you reach the pier, you'll find yourself in Plac Zdrojowy, a nice green square with benches, ice-cream stands, cafes and restaurants. It's another place to hang around, if you're bored with the sea view. You see people of all ages there: teenagers, young people, families with little children, older people who come to Sopot's health...more
Being an old seaside resort, Sopot has lots of nice houses and old villas. Peek into the side streets as you walk along the Monciak, and look up for some architectural details. You'll see some cute additions like the one in the picture. We call them "fillings", just like in a tooth. Sopot has quite a few of these. On my last short visit I didn't...more
