What to do in Sopot
INTERNATIONAL SONG FESTIVAL
The International Song Festival in Sopot, the largest such event in Europe after the Eurovision Song Contest, has been annually since 1961 at the Forest Opera - an open-air, covered amphitheatre, which can hold up to 4400 people. Past performers include, among others, Elton John, Lionel Richie, Whitney Houston, Bryan Adams, The Corrs and Chris Rea. The Forest Opera is considered one of the most beautiful and acoustically superb facilities of this type in Europe. Besides the annual song festival, the Forest Opera also hosts the Opera Festival and many other concerts and entertainment events.
ORANGE PROKOM OPEN TENNIS TOURNAMENT
The Orange Prokom Open International Men's Tennis Tournament is held every July and August on the beautifully located courts of the Sopot Tennis Club. It is the biggest and oldest event of this type in Poland. The tournament is played on clay courts and attracts many of today's top players. It was held for the first time in 1992, when it was just a small women's challenger. During its first decade it became one of the biggest sport attractions in the country, in the beginning as the Poland's very first WTA tournament and presently as the first and only ATP Tour tournament in the country.
THE STATE GALLERY OF ART
The State Gallery of Art holds modern art exhibitions, showing various artistic phenomena. The Gallery is trying to show the most important phenomena in Polish and foreign art, as well as reach the widest possible audience. It exhibits both experimental and more traditional works of art. An important part of the Gallery's activities are thematic reviews related to specific exhibitions, concerts and theatrical events, festivals, reviews, movie seminars (e.g. Art Film Festival), video projections.
Sopot's Aquapark offers water attractions for people of all ages. It features a variety of interconnected swimming pools in addition to cascades, tube slides, needle-baths, water massage, whirlpools and water grottos. Aquapark's top attraction is Poland's only wild river, which makes us feel as if we were in a natural mountain stream. Persons are carried by the current flow down the river, just as during rafting.
When visiting Sopot, it's a good idea to take a boat trip to nearby Gdansk or to the city of Hel, which is situated across the Gulf of Gdansk, at the tip of Hel Peninsula. Hel is primarily known for its Seal Aquarium at the Marine Station, which breeds seals to be later released to help re-establish the species in the Baltic Sea region. Another of Hel's attractions is the Museum of Fishing, housed in the building of a fifteenth century Gothic church. The passenger ships, known as ferry-trams moor at Sopot's pier.
Z£OTY UL (GOLDEN BEEHIVE) RESTAURANT
Sopot's most famous restaurant/café, which owes its name to its honeycomb-shaped roof, is located in the very heart of the city, on Bohaterow Monte Cassino Street. The restaurant has been renovated several years ago and serves South American and European cuisine. In warm weather, the restaurant's summer garden is open.
What to see in Sopot
One of the city's top attractions - Sopot's pier is 511 meters long and stretches 450 meters into the sea. It is one of the longest wooden constructions in Europe. It includes the main deck, lower decks, as well as the side deck, where yachts and passenger ships moor. The pier is an excellent place to watch sporting events, which take place in the waters of the Gulf of Gdansk - World Championship Sailing, Baltic Cup in windsurfing or the Sopot Triathlon. During summer, there are many cultural events and concerts taking place on the pier, which is visited by 1.5 - 2 million people annually.
Sopot's sandy beach is about 4.5 kilometers long. Its central point is the pier, which divides the beach into the northern part (towards Gdynia) and the southern part (towards Gdansk). The beach is an excellent place for sunbathing in summer and for autumn and winter strolls along the coast. During the summer months, there are many water sports equipment rental facilities and attractions for children open near the Northern Baths. The main attraction of the southern part of the beach is an old fishing cove.
BOHATEROW MONTE CASSINO (HEROES OF MONTE CASSINO) STREET
The 635-meter long Bohaterow Monte Cassino Street is the main walking area of Sopot. It is closed to automobile traffic and is extremely popular among tourists and locals alike. The street leads straight into the pier and is dotted with many coffee shops, bars, restaurants and galleries, as well as 2 cinemas and a theater, located in beautiful, eclectic and neo-gothic houses. During summer, it becomes a venue for traveling street musicians, painters and artists who exhibit their work there.
THE CROOKED HOUSE
Located at 53 Bohaterow Monte Cassino Street, the unique and unusual-looking Crooked House was inspired by Gaudi's works and the drawings of Jan Marcin Szancer and Per Dahlberg - a Swedish artist, who has been living in Sopot for many years. Inside the house there are shops, restaurants and the Museum of Contemporary Pomeranian Marine Artistic Handicraft.
Sopot's lighthouse, which at the same time is a sightseeing tower, was built in 1903-1904, together with the new balneotherapy building. It was actually built around the balneotherapy building's chimney. The lighthouse is 30 meters tall and is open to visitors all year, providing a great view of the city.
