Poland: Sopot

Sopot, Poland

With its prime location on the Bay of Gdansk, the small seaside village and spa resort of Sopot is surrounded by wooded hills and offers a cozy retreat from everyday hassles. The town's art nouveau townhouses and historic parks provide a colorful backdrop for a scenic stroll. Visitors can walk along the longest wooden pier in Europe, which offers views of the city, sporting events, and the incoming water taxis, before settling into a day of sightseeing in the city or sunbathing on the beach.
