Concert Hall
“Have you ever seen an iceberg in the city center? If not, you must see the new premises of Szczecin Philharmonic which majestically emerges from urban buildings and pervasive greenery. Its metal and glass facade supplemented with light illuminations catch the eye of each person who comes nearby. The building was designed by catalonian architects from Barozzi Veiga from Barcelona and immediately has become the icon of our city. Modern design combined with inspiration taken from historic building of Konzerthaus creates a coherent whole of past, present and future of Szczecin. It has received numerous awards, including the Mies van der Rohe Award in 2015, the Award of the President of the Republic of Poland for the Best Architectural Structure in Poland in the years 2013-2014 in the “LIFE IN ARCHITECTURE” contest, and the award of the “bryla. pl” website dealing with architecture. ”

Museum
“Anyone entering Szczecin by bridges over the Oder River can see the towering red-brick gothic Cathedral and an elegant, pale silhouette of a Renaissance castle with green towers, which used to be the seat of the dukes of the Griffins dynasty who ruled the Duchy of Pomerania. The Pomeranian Dukes’ Castle has five wings and two courtyards. Acting as a cultural institution it organizes an array of cultural events: concerts, theatre performances, exhibitions, conferences and meetings to popularize science, as well as to spread knowledge about the history of West Pomerania. The largest wing houses an Opera. In the wing that housed a mint in the olden days one can find today Cultural and Tourist Information Centre. There is a panoramic terrace on the rooftop of the northern wing from where splendid views can be appreciated. The wing’s basement houses a Vault with sarcophaguses of six princes. The Duke Boguslaw X hall, which used to be a princely chapel, is now a concert hall with a polychromatic ceiling decorated in Renaissance style. A 17th century astronomical clock is the Castle’s special tourist attraction. Also a room dedicated to Eilhard Lubinus and the Witches’ Cell are definitely worth a visit.”

History Museum
“It's one of branches of the National Museum in Szczecin, where we present the newest history of Szczecin and West Pomerania region, with particular attention given to social protests and breaking events in the years 1970–1971, 1980–1981, 1988–1989, that lead Poland to regain independence in 1989. The building that houses our museum is partially hidden under the Solidarity Plaza, adjacent to the Concert Hall. The exhibition is interactive, apart from subject-related pieces, in its underground rooms you may see films, pictures and recordings of the events’ witnesses and participants. Location of the museum has not been chosen by an accident - it was here when on 17 December 1970 first shots were fired at the protesters. In July 2016, the Dialogue Centre Upheavals was ranked the Best Public Space in Europe. Four months later, on November 18, the same building was named World Building of the Year.”

Cemetery
“Central Cementary in Szczecin is almost 170 hectares big and it is an architectural park masterpiece and a monument of European class. The masters of garden and gravestone design had shown their craftsmanship. Unique and vanguard gravestones are embedded in the vast greenery of beautiful park. The necropolis was opened in 1901 and it is the biggest in Poland and the third in Europe. In the competition called „Seven New Wonders of Poland” organized by National Geographic magazine it took the 5th place. Two routes are marked there: historical and dendrological one.”

Restaurant
“The "BOMBAY" restaurant is one of few in Poland that uses a specially imported, charcoal-fired, earthen "TANDOOR" oven. This ancient universal device serves in Indian cuisine as both a grill and an oven. It is used to cook meat dishes and bread. Indian dishes are perfect to eat in company as a traditional meal consists of many dishes. A typical family menu in India includes: meat, poultry, fish, stewed vegetables, lentil, a lot of rice and a few home-made "breads". The restaurant has been recognised by Robert Makłowicz and Piotr Bikont as "a highly recommended establishment". This recognition was awarded only to the 20 best restaurants in Poland. The only restaurant in Szczecin recognised by the Pascal Guide as "a place with a unique atmosphere." Thank you very much for having honoured us with your presence. I really do hope that we will have the opportunity to serve you again in the future.”
