About us

Sopot is an inspiration… That is why we support both artists and their audiences with our strong, cutting-edge cultural infrastructure, our cultural institutions, and various creative NGOs.In the summer, Sopot hosts numerous festivals and other cultural events: Sopot Film Festiwal, Sopot Classic (classical music festival), Sopot by the Book, or Sopot Non Fiction (dedicated to documentary theatre). There are three theatres in the town: Teatr Boto, Teatr na Plaży, and Scena Kameralna Teatru Wybrzeże. The National Gallery of Art in Sopot is one of the most important galleries in Poland, with its Art Inkubator as a future workplace for artists and a meeting place for the residents of Sopot.The interaction between culture and social issues is the trademark of Sopot as reflected in the initiatives undertaken by the Museum of Sopot, e.g. the Sopocianie project which is designed to document our history and support the Sopot community.
