Characteristic of the place
Gulls are animals typical of coastal areas, and their sound is heard from every corner of Sopot. When you approach the center of Sopot pier, you can see them quietly flying around looking for food. They are really big, especially the size and somewhat grayish wings. As these birds aren't afraid of the passerby, you can feel free to contemplate them from close range. They are so characteristic of the place that they're in the badge of Sopot. Sopot beach has fine golden sand and although the water is a bit cold, it's one of the most visited beaches by tourists from all over Poland. Although the most well know area of the place is its wooden dock, the largest in Europe, with an area of 650 meters, 450 of which are on the water, so you can dive into the water while walking half a kilometer into the sea! The view of the coast and sea from the end of the pier is beautiful.
