This year’s holiday is unusual, because in Sopot we receive many children and young people from abroad. That is why the city has also prepared a summer recreation offer for our new residents – says Magdalena Czarzyńska-Jachim, vice president of Sopot. And so, from June 27, young Sopot, Ukrainians and Belarusians who spend their summer in the city can take advantage of various activities.
They can take advantage of day camps or offers prepared by educational institutions, municipal institutions and other organizers. There are also activities financed from the city budget, especially aimed at children and young people from Ukraine, combined with learning Polish.
– We want these children to be able to rest, play, at least forget a little bit of what they’ve been through. We also have a sports offer, such as Holidays under the Sail. Cruises on Gdańsk Bay, to which we also invite children from Ukraine, will start on July 4 – Vice President Magdalena Czarzyńska-Jachim encourages.
