Szczecin: Miedzyrzecki Fortified Region Tour

If you have already visited Szczecin and would like to participate in a memorable experience, join us for the tour to the Miedzyrzecki Fortified Region. Undoubtedly, it is one of the most interesting fortification systems in Poland which includes 30 km of underground corridors connecting the above-ground facilities. The construction of MFR was started by Hitler in 1932 to defend his eastern border against the attack of the Polish Army. Interestingly, the MFR did not take part in any battles during World War 2. It was occupied by the Russian Red Army almost immediately as German troops who stationed here were not trained to defend the fortifications and most of them escaped without a fight. Today, in the basement of the central section of MFR there is a largest bat reserve in Europe.
