Arrived at Sopot, a few hours east on Poland's north coast, quite excited reading all the articles drumming it up to be a vibrant hot spot of night life and water sports etc.... in the summer. Didn't take us long to find out that on a Sunday evening towards the end of September, a light drizzle in the air kindly reminding us of home (and at least curbing any home sickness), Sopot's atmosphere could probably more accurately be likened to that of Skegness. Never the less it was still a pretty pleasant seaside resort, quite modernised but maintaining a definately Polish feel.
Took the train to Gdansk the following day (somewhat perturbed by the ticket machine at Sopot station telling us to 'make a proper choice' in what was clearly a patronising manner) and got our first taste of a stunning Polish town. Everywhere we went in Gdansk we seemed to find stunning architecture and beautiful buildings. We also enjoyed wandering around all the Amber jewellery stalls which litter the streets in the town centre. Quite fortunate that the place was so beautiful in itself as all the museums were shut on a Monday!
