The Longest Wooden Pier in Europe

By Linda Tancs

It isn’t uncommon for a seaside city to boast of rejuvenative effects.  In Sopot, Poland’s seaside city, they even say that the concentration of iodine in the air is heavier at seaside than on land.  Whatever the merits of the claim, what is undeniable is that this small seaside resort sports the longest wooden pier in Europe at about 1676 feet.  That’s quite a platform from which to view the town’s panorama of Art Nouveau townhouses, villas and historic parks.  Not surprisingly, most hotels are situated along the shoreline, like the stately Grand Sopot.  Spring and summer bring a slew of street and music festivals.  Better hurry.
