A City By Day: Szczecin Poland One of the great things about living in Berlin and Europe is that you can easily wake up one morning and decide to go to another country. Thinking it was about time to add another country to my list of places traveled and indulge in my immense love for Eastern Europe, I woke up last Friday morning and took a day trip to Szczecin, Poland.
Like the time I wandered through the streets of Havana, I opted not to bring a guide book or map and walked through the streets of Szczecin with no plan in mind. There was no visit to castles or cathedrals. It was just me and a friend from Toronto touring the city with our cameras in hand.
A City By Day: Szczecin Poland
Aside from being captivated by the Szczecin street art, I was struck by how the city was both ugly and pretty all at once. Here are my first impressions of Szczecin Poland.
We started our journey from the city’s main train station.
Next, we made our way towards the Oder river where we spied these men fishing.
This is me, with my fresh new red hair, posing in all my cheesy glory.
Old trams. Autumn leaves. My goodness, Szczecin Poland was pulling out some romantic stops.
Of course, there was more romance in the details.
I was seriously digging all of the Polish architecture.
Which of course, gets even more beautiful at sunset.
This little day trip was so fantastic that I’m currently working on planning a weekend trip to Krakow.
