Sopot is located at the Baltic Sea so it is very popular with tourists. I spent one week of my holidays there. The weather was nice but not too hot.
The creation of a series of bathhouses and spas led to the town becoming an increasingly fashionable health resort which lured a select, affluent and aristocratic set drawn by the vibrant social life as much as by the soothing waters of the St Wojciech spring.
Damaged but not destroyed by WWII, the city attracted an increasingly Bohemian, artistic and later reactionary crowd during the years of communist rule when its fame was also increased by playing host to the Soviet Bloc’s equivalent of the Eurovision Song Content.
A recent multi-million euro investment has seen the lower end of Bohaterow Monte Cassino given a new and modern look with state of the art conference facilities, hotels, art gallery, bars, restaurants and clubs springing up to surround the centrepiece of the development - the fourth incarnation of Sopot's Resort House.
Today, Sopot is once again a hip and happening place with its trendy nightlife while its sandy and sheltered beaches and range of top class hotel and spas are once again attracting an international audience drawn by its beauty and value for money. Kilometres of cycle routes and forest paths also make it ideal for those who like active form of relaxation while visiting in the warm summer months opens up loads of opportunities for things to do on the sea. Visit outside of the high season and find a pretty little town with some very good restaurants and a relaxed air - whatever the weather. ( from travel guide)
