Many people say their hometown is a unique place. But Szczecin is really special. With a population of about four hundred thousand, the capital of West Pomerania covers an area of over 300 square kilometers. Half of this is green areas, and one quarter is covered by lakes and the Odra and Regalica Rivers. Undoubtedly, it is a city like no other in Poland or Europe. Get onboard a cruise boat on the Odra and several minutes later you will be enjoying the city's wonderful nature: tiny wild islands, a maze of channels of Międzyodrze, diverse tree species and extremely rare birds, including white-tailed eagles circling over tall trees. Along the Odra waterfront, a steep embankment is topped with an outstanding trio of a century old buildings, the only such urban complex in Europe. Today's Wały Chrobrego, or Chrobry Embankment, in the past was named Haken Terasse in honor of Szczecin's great mayor Herman Haken.
