Szczecin (German: Stettin) Poland’s seventh largest city, with 430,000 inhabitants is Poland’s second largest port city, even though it is located about 60 kilometers from the Baltic Sea. Szczecin is a popular destination for Germans, Danes and Swedes who come to take advantage of the many good shopping opportunities, especially in the large open markets.
Szczecin is strategically located on the Oder River and this location has throughout history made Szczecin a city that has been under Danish, Swedish, Prussian, German, French and Polish rule. After World War II, the German city came under Polish rule and was renamed Szczecin.
But Szczecin is more than just trade, the city has a great history. It is a city where much is being done to restore the old impressive buildings that, despite extensive destruction during World War II, remain in the city.
The city is also called “Paris of Poland” due to the distinctive street design inspired by the street design in Paris with the many roundabouts and large wide boulevards. Szczecin is a very large city covering an area of about 300 km2 and the city also hides an incredibly beautiful and exotic nature.
In the “old town” concentrated around the town’s oldest town hall, the street scene from the old Szczecin is recreated as new buildings are built on top of the old foundations that are being excavated.
But you can also easily spend a short holiday exploring the many beautiful buildings supplemented by relaxation in the beautiful nature in and around the city. A boat trip on the Oder river is a very exciting and highly varied experience in untouched nature.
