Sopot is a small seaside city and spa resort in northern Poland. It is famous for its International Song Festival, the largest such event in Europe after the Eurovision Song Contest.
The first written record of the city’s name dates back to 1283. In 1901, Sopot was granted city rights by the last German Emperor and King of Prussia, Wilhelm II. Its unique character stems from the Art Nouveau houses, surrounded by historic parks and beautifully cultivated gardens, with greenery covering 60% of the city area.
The city is located on the southern coast of the Baltic Sea between the cities of Gdańsk and Gdynia in Eastern Pomerania.
