Full description

Szczecin is a charmful seaport town, known for its unique urban planning based on the Orion constellation. Embark with us on a quest to discover Szczecin’s architectural monuments and immerse yourself in the city’s history and urban legends.

The 2-hour tour will follow the medieval trail through the Old Town. You will start at the quiet park Plac Andersa, where your Private Guide will show you a couple of interesting monuments, such as Jan Czekanowski’s Bench, which is a popular photo spot for the locals and tourists. Further on, at the Victory Square you will marvel at the Water Gate fountain, and the beautiful neo-Gothic architecture of the Sacred Heart of Jesus Church and the Church of St Wojciech. Step inside St Wojciech to see elegant ornaments, a stunning altar and rosetta windows, and immerse yourself in the fascinating history of the church and its patron.

Follow your Private Guide through the lively Old Town streets to get tips on the best local restaurants, pubs and clubs. See one of the only significant remnants of the 18th century city fortifications, the Harbour Gate, and stroll to the tallest church in Pomeranian, the soaring 14th century Cathedral Basilica of St James the Apostle. Around the market square, you will find some noble residences and ornate houses, such as the House of Loitz. The tour will end at the adorable Hay Market Square, featuring the Old Town Hall and the fantastic, gingerbread-style colorful houses.

Choose the 3-hour option to learn even more about Szczecin and enjoy an extended route. Stroll along the Piastowski Boulevard to admire the scenic views over the West Oder River, then visit the crown jewel of Szczecin, the Pomeranian Dukes’ Castle! Marvel at its elegant exterior featuring the medieval astronomical clock, and step inside to hear fascinating stories about its former rulers, the Duchy of Pomerania. Lastly, stroll along the popular Chrobry Embankment to find stunning monuments like the Chrobry Embankment Fountain and the National Museum in Szczecin.

Pick the 4-hour option to enrich your experience with a visit to the Archcathedral Basilica of St James the Apostle (Szczecin Cathedral) and admire the phenomenal panoramic views of the city from the basilica’s 110m tower. In addition, you will enjoy a walk around the Solidarity square, where you will see the Royal Gate, Sundial, and a Monument to the Victims of December 1970. You will also step inside the iconic, ice-like Karlowicz Philharmonic, which has received several architectural awards for its unique design of translucent ribbed-glass façade and intriguing geometric shapes.
