After tiring driving in the last few days, we have decided to rest and refresh in Sopot. It is the smallest town of the Tricity metropolis, situated just between Gdansk and Gdynia. Sopot is a popular holiday destination with sunny beaches, the longest wooden pier in Europe, and an active nightlife provided by its numerous bars, pubs, and clubs. Besides the bustling “Monciak” Boulevard, there are some charming peaceful areas where we have enjoyed Art Nouveau villas, pleasant parks, and forests cut through by gorgeous ravines. It was primarily an old Slavonic settlement dating back to the times of the early Middle Ages. At the turn of the 17th and 18th centuries, Sopot was transformed into an increasingly fashionable spa that lured an affluent and aristocratic set as much for its soothing waters as for its vibrant social life.

We did hope, that we would be able to make some nice beach holidays this year, but unfortunately, we have got really rainy and cold weather with just a few hours of sunshine. But we found a much better parking location at Park 45 camp – with good amenities, restaurant, and direct access to the beach (truck 57 PLN, electricity 22 PLN, adult 21 PLN / day, local tax 8,9 PLN). Good refreshment near the famous boardwalk is at Kropka Bar (Zapiekanka 14 PLN, Hot Dog 8 PLN, French Fries 8 PLN, Zywiec Beer 0,5 l / 10 PLN).
