Home > What to see > Outside Gdansk > The longest wooden pier in Sopot


The longest wooden pier in Europe (511,5 m), stretching into the sea from the middle of Sopot beach is a popular venue for recreation and health walks (the concentration of iodine at the tip of the pier is twice as high as on land) or public entertainment events, and it also serves as a mooring point for cruise boats and water taxis.


It is also an excellent point for observing the World Sailing Championship, the Baltic Windsurfing Cup and the Sopot Triathlon taking place on the bay.
Sopot pier consists of 2 parts: the famous wooden walking jetty and the Spa Square on land, where concerts and festivities are organised.
On the pier there are:
-the Fregata Restaurant and several smaller catering facilities
-a shop and stalls with amber products and souvenirs
-a harbour for passenger ships (connections with Gdansk, Gdynia and Hel), water taxis and tourist yachts,
-a lighthouse with a vantage point,
-a historical fountain,
-a vantage point at the tip of the pier with telescopes for viewing the Bay of Gdańsk, Hel Peninsula and Westerplatte.
From November to March in the Spa Square there is an artificial outdoor ice rink.
