The recorded history of Szczecin dates back about a thousand years. Its past has been steeped in turbulence and tradition. Tragically, much of its art and architecture was destroyed during the Second World War.

However, a lot of reconstruction has taken place since then, ensuring that Szczecin has a lot to offer the tourist.
The city’s Secessional architecture has been preserved. There are some historical landmarks, reminiscent of the times when Szczecin, as a part of Prussia was called the ‘Paris of the North’.
