The coastal town of Sopot in Poland is not the first place you would expect a hillclimb. Located between Gdansk and Gdynia it is actually very different from those cities. While its two neighbours are harbours and developed their industry, Sopot became a spa and developed large resorts. The largest wooden pier in Europe lies on the bay in front of the city.
From 1920 until 1939 Sopot was part of the Danzig Free State. It was here that the Invasion of Poland began and therefore the start of the Second World War.
Sopot lies in the Gdansk Bay. From the north it is almost sheltered from the Baltic Sea by a long and narrow strip of sand called the Hel Peninsula. The peninsula is 100m at its smallest and 3000m at its widest. The shallow water (2m-6m deep) inside its embrace makes it the perfect spot for a seaside holiday.
