„At the very entrance to Sopot’s pier, on the left-hand side, there is
a small pavilion. It used to house a cafe. Nowadays, the sign over
the entrance reads: Marine Station of the Hydro-engineering
Institute of the Polish Academy of Sciences […].
Not so long ago, a tempting prospect presented itself to
the institute. The academy requested that it start making plans for
expansion on a European scale. It was given permission to take
over and adapt the buildings of a former German casino – over
35,000 cubic feet of space. […] In that tiny building down beside
Sopot Pier, research is conducted into issues of vital concern for
all Poland, but in a very narrow field. Its sole eye looks out to
the north, seaward”.
