      Gdynia and Sopot daytrip

      May 25, 2017 in Poland ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

      Set out today on a day trip with Agatha (64 and solo travelling)from Vienna Austria on a tour of two of the port cities north of Gdansk. Our first was a half hour train ride to Gdynia which is a modern port city. We spent about an hour and a half walking around and then decided to head to Sopot. Sopot is the Monte Carlo of Poland. Lakefront spa, Grand hotel, beautiful beaches, and a walking pier you had to pay for to walk on. We walked around the pier and got the same great view. This city was totally tourist driven. Lots of shops and restaurants. We had a lovely cream desert at a pastry shop. We headed back to Gdansk and went to the Twarg Dzewny (market). Lots of expensive food and clothes. We headed back to the hostel for pasta and beer. After dinner I went back out to check out the areas I'd Gdansk I missed in the day. Visited the Golden gate archway, Westplatz (a well restored promenade) and the Matllowa Canal on the opposite side. We were parachuted on by a group of preteen school kids which were so noisy and made the night unbearable to sleep. Booked my bus ticket to Vilnius, Lithuania for tomorrow evening.Read more
