The Tricity is one of the most popular destinations for trips to the Polish seaside. It is a region in Poland that includes three cities: Gdansk, Gdynia, and Sopot. However, the term can often also refer to other nearby cities, as they all form part of one economic unit. The cities are perfectly connected, so you can easily visit them simultaneously. What to see in the Tricity? Below, we present what is worth seeing.
What to see in these three cities? What should you pay attention to? We suggest!
The pier in Sopot is named after John Paul II. It is the longest promenade of this type along the entire European Baltic Sea. The walking part stretches 511 meters, of which about 458 go into the Gulf of Gdansk – impressive. Out of season, this place is free.
It’s worth going there because it’s the most famous pier in Poland and one of the brightest spots on the map of your city.
Gdynia is a picturesque seaside city with kilometers of sandy beaches, hills, and cliffs offering beautiful views. It is here, between Kamienna Góra and Orłowo, that one of the oldest Polish reserves is located – Kępa Redłowska! The Orłowski cliff is one of its attractions – it is as much as 60 meters high, and maybe it is constantly being washed away. It is an excellent place for lovers of breathtaking views.
The 18th-century Oliwa Park is located in the former gardens of the Cistercian monastery. It is perfect for those who love walking. Here, you can admire plants brought from all over the world! There is, among others, an orangery or a 112-meter-long lime avenue and many magnificent hornbeams. In addition, there is also the Abbots’ Palace in Oliwa Park. Everyone will find something for themselves here. The Tricity abounds in monuments, walking routes, beautiful forests, parks, and beaches. Those who love lying on the beach for hours and those who prefer to spend time actively will find something for themselves here. Do not waste time and visit Tricity.
