Szczecin Poland by Night

You already know how much I like walking through a city by night. I’ve spent hours punishing my feet walking through the streets of Prague, Krakow, and Vienna (even though it was super cold in all three places).

Of course, Szczecin, Poland was no exception. Walking around during the day, I discovered that the city has a rough gritty charm that contrasts with its stunning old world architecture. Not only that, Szczecin’s street art was also a delightful surprise.

Then at night, it got even better. Night brings about such a different character to a city making it seem dark, mysterious, and most of all romantic! Europe’s beauty never ceases to amaze me. My friend and I wandered around for a few hours, killing time before we caught our train back to Berlin.

St James Cathedral from a distance. Our tip? Pay a small fee to climb to the top of the steeple for a panoramic view over Szczecin.

    I haven’t spent much time in Poland but did love Krakow and Auschwitz.

    • Reply Cheryl Howard November 9, 2011 at 10:38 pm

      @Jeremy – I hope to make my way there soon. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Very pretty. The ones of the old buildings really remind me of Czech towns. You are very fortunatebto be able to take day trips like this! And i agree with Jeremy– I loved Krakow (went twice!), and Auschwitz was an experience I’ll never forget (went there twice, too!).

      @Jenna – Thanks so much! I’ll make my way to Krakow and Auschvitz sometime soon.

    Hi Cheryl, great blog! It’s good to know that other people fell in love with Szczecin too. We were there for only a day (took a train from/to Berlin a couple weeks ago) and absolutely loved it! The food was fantastic, so was the beer and the city is not like any other city..there is a hustle and energy combined with a laid back feel. Any of your readers in the area would be remiss if they didn’t take the opportunity to get there for at least a day. Cheers!
