Municipality of Sopot

Gmina Miasta Sopotu

Sopot – called ‘the summer capital of Poland’ – is a small resort on the Bay of Gdańsk, between Gdańsk and Gdynia, at the centre of the almost one-million Tri-City conurbation and the Pomerania province.

Thanks to the forests, the streams trickling downhill, and its unique microclimate conditions and abundant spa water resources, Sopot has become a tourist destination known across whole Europe. Located between the edge of the hills and the Bay of Gdańsk, surrounded in the east by the forests of the Tri-City Landscape Park, the town has preserved its unique character, also as a sanctuary for rare plant and animal species.

Sopot Match Race

Clean, sandy beaches stretch along the 4.5 km of Sopot shoreline, into which the Europe’s longest wooden pier cuts in, reaching 511.5 m into the sea – a place for strolls and cultural events and, at the same time a marina and a mooring for cruise ships.

Most tourists come here in summer when the town is vibrant with life, but if they wish for calm and respite it is still enough to turn into one of the side streets to find oneself in a completely different world – a cosy world of charming townhouses and villas surrounded by trees, gardens and heritage parks.

Sopot’s role in EnSURE

The Municipality of Sopot is responsible for development of a pilot project on the thermomodernisation of a listed building in Sopot. Rising energy efficiency through thermomodernisation of listed buildings and searching for different energy efficient solutions in this buildings is crucial for Sopot. Due to the city’s typical historical architecture and its status as a spa area, activities in rehabilitation have to deal with restrictions from the heritage conservator.
