Sopot: a Baltic sea coastal resort

11:46 AM



Μιας και βρισκόμασταν στο Gdansk και είχαμε νοικιάσει και αυτοκίνητο, αποφασίσαμε να ανακαλύψουμε λίγη περισσότερη Πολωνία. Κάνοντας μία μίνι έρευνα για το τι υπάρχει εκεί κοντά, καταλήξαμε στο Sopot, ένα παραθαλάσσιο μέρος - Έλληνες βλέπεις, μας έλειψε η παραλία Αυγουστιάτικα.
Δεν είχα ξανακούσει ποτέ τίποτα για το Sopot και η αλήθεια είναι ότι με το που διάβασα ότι εκεί υπάρχει η μεγαλύτερη προβλήτα της Ευρώπης και έχοντας φρέσκιες ακόμη της καλιφορνέζικες εικόνες ήθελα να πάω να την δω! Μοιάζει έστω και λίγο με Καλιφόρνια? Αποφασίσαμε λοιπόν να πάμε να το ανακαλύψουμε από κοντά και η απόφαση αυτή μας αποζημίωσε. Γιατί το -άγνωστο μέχρι τώρα- Sopot είναι μία φανταστική πόλη! 
Εντυπωσιάστηκα από την πρώτη στιγμή που πλησιάζαμε με το αυτοκίνητο και αχνοφαινόταν ο κεντρικός δρόμος της πόλης. Περπατώντας τον, δεν το πίστευα! Βρισκόμουν σε ένα παραθαλάσσιο θέρετρο γεμάτο από κόσμο, μαγαζιά, εστιατόρια μα πάνω από όλα πανέμορφο! Η κεντρική πλατεία είναι τεράστια και πολύ περιποιημένη (ούτε ένα σκουπίδι κάτω) ενώ ο κεντρικός δρόμος οδηγεί στον μόλο και σε έναν καταπράσινο περίπατο στα δεξιά παράλληλα με την απέραντη παραλία. Φτάνοντας στην παραλία, τελικά έμοιαζε λίγο με Καλιφόρνια. Ο τεράστιος μόλος, η μεγάλη αμμουδιά, τα μαγαζιά επάνω στην αμμουδιά. 
Καθώς ήταν σαββατόβραδο και άρχιζε να νυχτώνει, η πόλη γέμισε με όμορφους καλοφτιαγμένους νέους που άλλοι άραζαν στην παραλία, άλλοι έκαναν τη βόλτα τους, έτρωγαν ή πήγαιναν στα club για χορό.
Μετά από αυτή την εμπειρία μου μπορώ να πω ότι το Sopot συγκαταλέγεται στη λίστα με τις πιο όμορφες ευρωπαϊκές πόλεις που έχω βρεθεί μέχρι στιγμής.
Η ομορφιά της πόλης δυστυχώς χάνει στις φωτογραφίες και οι παρακάτω δίνουν μόνο μία μικρή γεύση.

SOPOT, POLAND

Since we were in Gdansk and had a car, we decided to discover a bit more of Poland. So we thought it was a good idea to see a bit of the baltic sea coast and visit Sopot!
Did I know that city before? The truth is I've never heard about it, I just did a research for the closest beach cities from where we were and I read that Sopot has the longest pier in Europe! Having fresh memories from Californian amazing piers and beaches I thought that would be a good idea. It was not just a good idea, it was an amazing one. Because Sopot is such a wonderful place!

I was amazed from the first moment that we were approaching the city centre by our car. When I got out and walked down the main commercial street I was not believing it! 
A glamorous resort city with many shops and restaurants, a beautiful vibrant main road that leads you to the pier (Molo) and a walking area full of trees leading you to the huge beach! It was slightly breezy and wonderful. 
When we finally went to the beach and saw the big coast, it did reminded me a bit of California. It was fabulous. 
It was Saturday night, so the nightlife was also epic. Many young people walking in the streets, beautiful people having fun hanging around the beach and going to the clubs.
Now I can say that Sopot is one of the best european cities I have ever visited. 
The beauty of Sopot cannot be captured in any photos. 
Here is a small taste of the city:
The life aquatic:


Μερικά χρήσιμα tips:
 Το Sopot είναι παραλιακό θέρετρο πράγμα που συνεπάγεται αυξημένες τιμές σχεδόν σε όλα.
 Η είσοδος στην προβλήτα κοστίζει 7.5 ζλότι, φυσικά αξίζει τον κόπο. Ο μόλος έχει μήκος 511 μέτρα και πλάτος 10 μέτρα, οπότε κάνεις μία άνετη βόλτα συν βλέπεις την παραλία και την πόλη από άλλη οπτική γωνία. Η καλύτερη ώρα για επίσκεψη είναι πριν πέσει ο ήλιος και καλό είναι να υπάρχει και ένα ζακετάκι στην τσάντα.
♬ Το gofre είναι must try! Βάφλα με παγωτό και φρέσκα φρούτα κανείς? Εμείς πάντως εθιστήκαμε.
♬ Το νερό της Βαλτικής είναι παγωμένο και αδιαφανές.
♬ Για Wes Anderson-ικές καταστάσεις μείνετε στο Grand Hotel! Είναι μαγικό ξενοδοχείο πάνω στην παραλία (και επίσης ακριβό, duh)
♬ Μη σας ξεφύγει το Crooked House καθώς κατεβαίνετε την κεντρική οδό (είναι στα αριστερά).

Some useful tips:
♬ Being in a resort city means that everything is a bit more expensive, so be prepared.
The admission to Sopot Pier is 7.5 zloti, but its worth. It is 511m long and 10m wide so walking on it gives beautiful views of the city and the beach. Try to go before the sun sets and have a jacket with you just in case.
♬ Try a gofre! A delicious waffle with icecream and fresh fruits! It's addictive!
♬  If you plan to swim, the water is cold!!
♬ If you have time and money then you should definitely sleep at Grand Hotel! It was so magical from the outside, I cannot imagine on the inside! Plus, it will make you feel like you star in a Wes Anderson movie! 
Don't miss the Crooked House as you walk down the main street to your left hand.
