Parks and ubiquitous greenery. That sort of green island, surprisingly, is the greatest cemetery in the country. Central Cemetery was established in 1901 and today it is the third largest necropolis in Europe. Planners modeled it on Hamburg and Vienna cemeteries. Today there are over three hundred thousand people buried there.

Sometimes it is said about Szczecin that it is the city of magnolia scent. It is perfect for having some rest, for sightseeing or as a base camp for trips to our neighbors’ country capital. Scandinavian countries are not far from here either. The city is enfolded by three forests, three prominences and one fourth of its area is covered by water. This sort of ensemble results in a truly amazing landscape. In terms of culture it is as much intriguing. Szczecin has been switching its owners for centuries and this unsteadiness apparently shows through the city’s character. Polish, Danish, German, Swedish, even French culture, as Szczecin used to be a French stronghold during Napoleonic wars, left their marks on the city.
