Were you there to party - thats when it really crowds up

No, I went once to watch the Kitesurfing competition which was crowd but nothing that bothered me (and I hate crowd places) and other 2 times just to enjoy the almost virgin beach.

If anyone her visits the Baltic, there's 1 beach I don't recommend (unless you like muscleheads and fighting) and thats Mielno. It's super packed and run by troublemakers. Yeah, there are a lot of shops and peachy beachy trinkets, but for me it was too much. If that's your thing, you may like.

There is a nice lake opposite the beach which has some nice scenery, so it may be worth a short stop. I just wouldn't plan too much time there.

Lake in Mielno Poland:

was looking forward to a nice beach pic.

Nice beach? You must visit Międzyzdroje!!!! Nice sandy beach, heavy night life, relaxing, lazy atmosphere. Super to catch a breathe and relax

Well just curious to know what good sights there are to see there. I will be going there for a couple of days in a few weeks.

I will be going there for a couple of days in a few weeks.

1.I would take a walk from Waly Chrobrego all the way to Old Town (quite small) with the Castle on the way. This path is along the Odra river, so it should be nice and it will take you a couple of hours with stopping for beer and pics. There are some spectacular building: starting with the Provincial Government building, Contemporay Theatre building, maritime Museum and finally Maritime University.

2. Grunwaldzki Plaza is a must see IMO
3. Boguslawa Passage with small galleries and pubs. Fanaberia tea house is worth a visit.
4.if you really interested in war times there is a bunker tour which starts at the train station (2 hours)I haven't seen it but Szczecin has apparently a lot of bunkers and underground tunnels dating back to German times

there is more......it depends what your interests are.

Thanks! Yes I am very much a world war II history buff so those bunkers would certainly be of interest to me. Thanks for the tip miranda!

here is the link: szczecin-underground.com/ang/04_trasy.htm

I hope you will enjoy it and it is an hour tour not 2 hours as I mentioned previously.

I went to Hel up north, everyone always told me to go to hell!, there were bunkers and all sorts, left alone, not very "touristy" but interesting as hell. excuse the pun, I also love driving through Poland and at petrol stations you can see a tank or a aeroplane obviously from WW2, this is a very interesting country.

Anybody been to the Wolfs Lair in Gierloz ?

cough, cough ..I live in Szczecin but frankly hardly can give any tourist info as I know town too well (strange, I know) ....on second thought I recommend a trip by wodolot from Szczecin to Swinoujscie (Odra river, 60 min one way).

If you need any other practical info or anything I'll be glad to answer.

I have. DOn't ask me why;). My parents took me everywhere when I was a child.

I forgot the Shipyards (where part of Solidarity movement started in the 80s). One can see them from Waly Chrobrego.

Kowalski: sorry for stepping in. I knew that you live there and you probably have updated info.

some unbeaten paths

Thanks! Those images from that link are very striking. So were those shelters and bunkers built by the Germans during the War ? If I am not mistaken, Szczecin used to be a german city called Stettin. Was this city bombed heavily by the Allies?

What you mean this one where the workers rescued the grave stones after the Germans were going to use them for road building and later they built a remembrance wall with them.

Dare i say it and i wonder if somebody will take this seriously or not, BECAUSE SOME HAVE A PROBLEM WITH TELLING WHEN I'M JOKING EVEN WHEN I PUT A SMILEY ON THE END!!!!

The best part of Poland for me is the plane i fly out on and the airport because i know soon i will be home sweet home :) On a more serious note, i don't think i could possibly tell you the best part of Poland as i have not seen enough of it. I may be more qualified in the future
