The Pier in Sopot
The Sopot Pier is the city’s oldest landmark and the longest known wooden pier in all of Europe. It first opened in 1827 and was built as a pleasure pier and a mooring point for cruise boats. Today, it is a popular destination for tourists who flock to the seaside city, with many movies and music videos filmed on the Pier as well.
Recently renovated in 2005, the pier is 150 meters in length and is considered an observation point for when Sopot hosts the World Sailing Championships, the Baltic Windsurfing Cup and the Sopot Triathlon. The Pier has two parts: a wooden walking jetty and the Spa Square on land, where many concerts and summer festivities are organized.
If you are in Sopot and snag a spot to sit on the Pier for an afternoon of sunbathing, consider yourself lucky, as its usually packed during the summer months. For more information, contact +48 58 551 12 76.
