Gdańsk is as old as Poland itself. Located in the north of the country on the sea coast at the mouth of the Vistula, Gdańsk was the Polish gateway to the sea, a thriving, wealthy city, an important Hanseatic port and a Free City. In the 20th century, Gdańsk was the scene of the first battle of the Second World War. Like the heroes of ancient Thermopylae, the heroic defenders of Westerplatte wrote a chapter in the history of this majestic city. Being so prosperous, the city of Gdańsk was often besieged by mercenary armies and had to defend its sovereignty. It is no wonder that here in Gdańsk, the Solidarity movement and the struggle for the freedom of Poland, was born.
If you are sports fan, you know Gdansk because it is a popular location for both European-level as well as world-class level tournaments, e.g. UEFA Euro 2012 (soccer), Hosting 2020 UEFA Europa League final in May'2020 (soccer) or world’s volleyball Championship 2014.
Sopot, It lies between the larger cities of Gdańsk to the southeast and Gdynia to the northwest. The three cities together make up the metropolitan area of Tri-City.
Sopot is and a very popular tourist resort destination. It has the longest wooden pier in Europe, at 515.5 meters, stretching out into the Bay of Gdańsk. Sopot attracts crowds who get a mixture of little Monte Carlo flair, bohemia & beach/water sports. Watch and be watched. Or, simply benefit from range of health treatments (tip: a fountain of bromide spring water, known as the "inhalation mushroom"). It is a spa town, after all!
