Tricity, Poland

Tricity, or Tri-City (Polish: Trójmiasto [Polish pronunciation: [trujˈmʲastɔ]], Kashubian: Trzëgard}) is a metropolitan area in Poland consisting of three cities in Pomerania: Gdańsk, Gdynia and Sopot, as well as minor towns in their vicinity. They are situated adjacent to one other, in a row on the coast of Gdańsk Bay, Baltic Sea, in Pomerelia (Pomeranian Voivodeship), northern Poland. The Tricity metropolitan area has a population of over 1 million people. The name Trójmiasto was used informally or semi-formally only, until 28 March 2007, when the "Tricity Charter" (in Polish Karta Trójmiasta) was signed as a declaration of the cities' cooperation.
