Szczecin

 
  • Szczecin is the capital and the biggest city of Zachodniopomorskie Voivodeship (Western Pomerania Province). It is situated on the banks of the Odra River, Regalica (branch of Odra) and Dąbie Lake, 65 kilometers from the Baltic Sea. Szczecin is an important harbour and its shipyard is the fourth-largest in Europe. It is a big industrial, cultural and scholarly centre as well as an important centre of the water transport (the navigable Odra River is used, among others, for transporting mined material from Upper and Lower Silesia).

    Around the 11th century, settled by Slavic tribes, Szczecin was the centre of the Baltic trade and craft. In 1121, the city was subjugated by Boleslaus III the Wrymouthed. It received city rights in 1237, the same time when one could observe the growth of corn and herring trade. From 1637, as the last Prince of the Gryphites dynasty died without issue, Szczecin was taken over and fortified by the Swedes. After the Stockholm;s Treaty in the year 1720, Szczecin was included to Prussia. At the turn of the 19th to 20th c. the shipbuilding industry revived, the harbour and the city developed. After World War II Szczecin was given to Poland.
