About the host city

With the 2011 FIVB Volleyball World League set to be hosted at the Gdansk and Sopot Ergo Arena, both cities will welcome some of the top players from around the world. In fact, the center line on the volleyball court where the World League will reach its climax is the exact border of the two Polish towns.
 
   

Gdansk sits on the northern coast of Poland on the edge of the Baltic Sea and is the country's fourth largest city. Situated on the mouth of the Motlawa River it has a population of 455,830. A thriving shipping port, Gdansk is also one of Poland's top tourist destinations.

   

The seaside town of Sopot has a population of 40,000 and along with Gdansk and neighbouring Gdynia it completes the metropolitan area known as Trojmiasto (Tri-City). A major tourist destination and well-known for its health-spas, it is also home to Europe's longest wooden pier which stretches to 515.5 meters.
