Sopot is a seaside town in Eastern Pomerania on the southern coast of the Baltic Sea in northern Poland, with a population of approximately 40,000.
Sopot is a city with powiat (county) status, in the Pomeranian Voivodeship. Until 1999 it was part of the Gdańsk Voivodeship. It lies between the larger cities of Gdansk to the southeast and Gdynia to the northwest. The three cities together make up the metropolitan agglomeration of the Trójmiasto (Tri-City).
Sopot is a major health-spa and tourist resort destination. It has the longest wooden pier in Europe, at 515.5 metres, stretching out into the Bay of Gdańsk. The city is also famous for its Sopot International Song Festival, the largest such event in Europe after the Eurovision Song Contest. Among its other attractions is a fountain of bromide spring water, known as the "inhalation mushroom".

Great view of the beach, I really like to see all the people walking along the shoreline. The sky looks wonderful too with some great clouds.

This is a nicely composed photo with good colours. I like the long curve of the beach and the line of people so well spread out all along the water. There is a very nice contrast between the brown sand and the blue sky and I also enjoy the view of the well shaped clouds.

It's wonderfully relaxing lively beachscape and a real treat for a short break fully filled by the glorious colours to chill out. That beautiful strong blue patch of sky makes a lovely contrast to the foreground. Well done, TFS
