Situated in the northwestern corner of Poland about 125 mi/200 km northwest of Poznan, Szczecin is usually seen by visitors who cross into Poland from Berlin.
We recommend stopping to see the 11th-century Castle of the Pomeranian Princes (Zamek Ksiaizat Pomorskich) and 14th-century St. James Cathedral.
Stargard Szczecinski, southeast of Szczecin, is a quiet town with spectacular medieval walls and towers—excellent for walking around.
The seaside town of Swinoujscie, 40 mi/65 km north, is a pleasant place to overnight. You can take a ferry across to Scandinavia. Near Swinoujscie, in Miedzyzdroje, is the posh Amber Baltic Hotel. A picturesque golf course is also located on the island of Wolin.
