Szczecin City Walk

Szczecin is one of the oldest cities in Poland with long and turbulent history. Its very beginnings go back to 8th century when Slavic tribes built their fortress and settlement here. Over the centuries, city belonged to Germany, Sweden and Denmark. Before World War 2, it was part of German Third Reich and known as Stettin. Finally after the war, Szczecin became Polish city and capital of Western Pomerania region.
