Szczecin Travel Guide

Edit This The best resource for sights, hotels, restaurants, bars, what to do and see


The biggest city in the north-west part of Poland, just 120km from Berlin and only 80km from the Baltic Sea. Located on both sides of the Odra (Oder) River.

It is a part of the Szczecin-Swinoujscie sea harbour complex.

Szczecin (Stettin) is a beautiful city which has lots of interesting and historical places to see.

Must see places:

Zamek Ksiazat Pomorskich (The Pomeranian Prince's Castle) and its tower

Waly Chrobrego

Jezioro Szmaragdowe (The Green Lake) and whole Puszcza Bukowa

It is also worthwhile to visit Cafe22 at the top floor of the Pazim building, from where a picturesque view at whole the center can be seen.

There are many fabulous buildings with great architecture (they are being renovated recently as they were quite deteriorated after 45 years of "socialistic" government) that can be seen in Szczecin.

Many green parks in the center and nearness of forests and lakes (among them the Dabie Lake - the second biggest lake in Poland) make it a good recreational area, too.

There are lots of places where one can walk or cycle.

It's just about an hour drive to get to the sea and wonderful sandy beaches of Poland.
