Cruises from Szczecin
Szczecin (Stettin) is the largest city in NW Poland, the country’s seventh largest city, and home to its largest seaport. It lies on the Oder River, about 60 km inland from the Baltic Sea. An attraction of the city is its many fabulous buildings. For a good overview of the city, visit Cafe22 located on the top floor of the Pazim building.
Well off the track of non-German tourists, this port city of Szczecin is a lively city awash with students and a range of architectural styles inherited from wildly different ages. You’ll see crumbly German-era Art Nouveau tenements and mansions, some now undergoing renovation, which echo a past splendour; but the historical style is patchy.
