Sopot is the smallest town of the Tri-City agglomeration, functioning as a district town. Sopot is a small Polish town situated on the Baltic Sea coast between Gdansk and Gdynia, a natural centre of the nearly one-million Tri-City agglomeration and the Pomeranian province.


In the south the town is bordered by the Tri-City Landscape Park and its northern border is marked by 4.5 km long sandy beaches of the Bay of Gdansk. In Sopot there are many attractions, e.g. the longest wooden pier in Europe, clean and sandy beaches, Bohaterow Monte Cassino Street, which is the most famous pedestrian precinct in the country, The Forest Opera, the Fishing Harbour, The Hippodrome Sopot and the Forest Stadium. Sopot, once described as the Riviera of the North, is attractive also because of its proximity to Gdansk and Gdynia. From Sopot excursions can be made to Puck, Kartuzy and Wejherowo, or by boat to Hel. It is worth seeing in Sopot the neoclassical manor house of the Sierakowskis from ca 1800, now the seat of the Society of Friends of Sopot. The town's narrow streets hide many delightful guesthouses.
