More about Szczecin

Szczecin is reputed as the 'green city'. The reason for this is that rivers, lakes, woods and parks abound in its surroundings. Green areas cover almost 20% of the city. Three resplendent forests, Puszcza Wkrzanska, Bukowa and Goleniowska form the neighborhood of Szczecin, making it a favored recreational centre.

Being located on a harbor, the maritime economy is key to the city's growth. The shipyards, fishing companies, repair yards and transport contribute in a big way to the city's trade.

Most tourists visit here for the day or stay overnight. There is a lot of tourist traffic from Germany, Sweden and Denmark due to the proximity of these countries from Szczecin.
