Sopot, Poland

Sopot is a small Polish town situated on the Baltic Sea coast between Gdańsk and Gdynia. The Germans, who were the majority of Sopot’s community in the first half of the last century, used the name Zoppot. The town survived the war without any major damage, although during the fighting in March 1945 Sopot lost the Spa House, the casino building and beautiful hotels along the main walk.
