Well, I hadn’t till just before we left for Gdansk!

Sopot is a charming sea side town about 20 – 30 minutes away (by car) from Gdansk. It’s also accessible by train but the taxis are cheap enough – especially so if you share it with others like the 4 of us did.

We arrived in Sopot on a sunny yet cloudy afternoon. It was such an odd combination but made for quite a dramatic combo.

We made a beeline straight for the shore.

Being here did make me wish we’d arrived a few months earlier in the height of summer so we could make the most of being by the sea side.

We essentially just ambled along the pier with no real aim but to see as much of Sopot as we possibly could.

Apparently, according to one our friends who’s been to Sopot quite a few times, the hotel below is THE place to stay.

Lloyd and Georgia went off in search of souvenirs… Chris and I went off in search of ice cream. Ice cream by the sea side is a must, I reckon.

We left the pier and headed on into town, in search of one of Sopot’s iconic buildings, Krzywy Domek (also known as “The Crooked House“)…

We decided to rest our weary feet in a cosy cafe called Dwie Zmiany…

… which is such an eclectic little place and a really great stop in when you’re in Sopot!

Before we knew it, it was time to head back to Gdansk, re-caffeinated and rejuvenated with that fresh sea breeze! 🙂
