Chrobry Embankment (Haken's Terrace)

Chrobry Embankment (Haken's Terrace)

The Chrobry Embankment, formerly Haken’s Terraces, one of the most beautiful places in Europe. From here you can watch the vast panorama of the Odra River and the harbour. The viewing terraces are 500 m long and are located 19 m above the Odra river bank. The earliest written history of the area dates back to the sixteenth century. In 1873, a demolition of the eighteenth-century fortifications of Szczecin began. Thanks to the great commitment of Hermann Haken, High Mayor of Szczecin, in the years 1902-1905 a viewing terrace was formed on the site of Fort Leopold. Wide staircases run on both sides from the terrace to the banks of the river, where two pavilions were erected as the entrance to the restaurant, created contemporarily in the remains of the fortifications. At the bottom, there is a fountain decorated with figures of John of Kolno and Wyszak and two tall columns stylized as lighthouses. In the years 1906 to 1912 in the northern part of the terrace an architectural complex was built for the then regency of Szczecin, where now the authorities of the West-Pomeranian province have their headquarters. In addition, in the southern part of the Embankment a building complex of the Maritime Academy is located (from the years 1902-1905 and 1918-1921) and, housed in the same building, Contemporary Theatre and the Maritime Branch of the National Museum. Moreover, a large park is situated near the Chrobry Embankment.

St. James Arch Cathedral and the tower

St. James Arch Cathedral and the tower

After the 1147 crusade against the Polabian Slavs, Szczecin became a place of German colonisation. St Jacob’s Church, intended for German colonists, was consecrated in 1187. It was founded by Beringer, a Bramberg pilgrim, and given to the custody of the Benedictine brothers from the St Michael Monastery in Bramberg. The construction of the brick church continued for dozens of years, starting in the middle of the 13th Century from a three-aisle basilica with two spires and a basilica-like presbytery, surrounded with a by-pass and a circle of chapels. The altars were founded by the Szczecin guilds and companies. The presbytery reconstruction started in 1370. The basilica frame was changed into the hall frame with a circle of chapels between the interior buttresses. At the outset of the 15th Century Henry Brunsberg built additional chapels on the southern aisle, decorating them with impressive ornaments made of tiled moulders. In 1456 the southern spire collapsed during a hurricane, destroying the basilica corpus. During reconstruction, additional chapels were erected in the northern section, together with only one spire in the western part, as a result of which the corpus was changed from the basilica frame into a hall church frame. The reconstruction work was completed in 1503. In the last 25 years of the 17th Century, the interior section was reconstructed in the Baroque style. The St Jacob bell, constructed by Wawrzyniec Köckeritz, the Szczecin bell-founder, was placed in the church tower. The altar was created by sculptor Erhard Löffler, and the painting, entitled “Taken down the cross”, was made by Lengereich. The organ front was sculptured by the Amsterdam master Van der Linden. While assembling the organs with a large scale of sounds, advice was provided by master Buxtehude from Lübeck. The capacity of this instrument was wonderfully utilised by organist and composer Karl Loewe, residing in Szczecin in 1820-1866. The church was badly damaged during the 16 August 1944 shelling. Its reconstruction did not start until 1972 and has continued until today. The official consecration of the cathedral was performed on 31 May 1982 by Kazimierz Majdański, the Szczecin-Kamieniec Bishop. The status of Cathedral Basilica was given by Pope John Paul II on 23 May 1983, and the status of Metropolitan Basilica on 25 March 1992. Considering the ongoing additions to the rich furnishings of the church, we suggest that you buy a current version of the guidebook while visiting this astonishing place. The tower is an element of the St. James Metropolitan Basilica Cathedral. An observation deck is available for tourist all year long. The entrance to the terrace is only via a lift.

The National Museum in Szczecin — The Szczecin History Museum -Old Town Hall

The National Museum in Szczecin — The Szczecin History Museum -Old Town Hall

The first mention of the wooden market hall, which was also the venue for the deliberations of the court and the meetings of the city councillors called “theatrum”, dates back to 1245. The current Gothic town hall hails from mid-15th Century, with Henryk Brunsberg considered to be its builder. The richly-decorated façade featuring glazed stones adds a painterly style to the structure. The building has arcades on its south wall, which used to play host to court proceedings on summer days. The City Council convened here twice a week. From the 14th Century the resolutions of the City Council were announced twice a year, i.e. on 1 May and 29 September. As some of them were quite peculiar, it is no wonder that such announcements sometimes left the city in tumult. Examples included the introduction of the anti-Hussite tax in 1428 and the raising of the prices of spirits in 1616. Less severe regulations were e.g. the resolution from 1418 against calumniators and rumourmongers slandering “lords, dukes, knights, squires, ladies, girls, priests, and vassals...”, or one law from 1558 which limited the luxury and excess during wedding celebrations, baptisms, and funerals. From 5 to 13 December 1570 the town hall hosted a Peace Congress ending the Northern Seven Years' War between Sweden and Denmark. After the damage suffered during the Brandenburg sieges, it was rebuilt in the Baroque style and served its purpose until the City Council was moved to the New Town Hall in 1879. Reconstructed again after the War in 1975 as the National Museum, it houses exhibitions dedicated to Szczecin’s past.

The National Museum in Szczecin — The Museum of Regional Traditions

The Museum of Regional Traditions is located in Baroque Landed Gentry House (Pommersche Landsmannschaft), built in years 1726–1727 according to the order of Prussian king Frederick William I. The building was designed by Gerhard Cornelius de Walrave (1692–1773), the author of, among others, famous Kłodzko fortess and fortifications of Szczecin. The palace served as the session hall of Pomeranian provincial authorities and a royal residence during king's stays in Szczecin. Over the entrance, there is the coat of arms of Pomerania and at the top of the facade – coat of arms of the king of Prussia against a background of panoply (crossed military equipment) and allegoric images of royal virtues: Justice and Sagacity. In the period between the world wars the palace was re-arranged into the seat of the Pomeranian State Museum (Pommersches Landesmuseum), and after World War II the building was taken over by the Museum of Western Pomerania, presently the National Museum in Szczecin. It houses exhibitions of, above all, relics of Pomeranian art from middle ages to Baroque, including Romanesque capitals from Kołbacz, early-Gothic Crucifix from Kamień Pomorski, a portrait of duke Philip I by Lucas Cranach the Younger and impressive jewels of Pomeranian dukes from the 16th and 17th centuries.

Miedzyodrze by kayak

Miedzyodrze by kayak

Miedzyodrze is a region of flood waters and wetlands that spreads south of Szczecin bounded by the two arms of the Oder River – the Eastern and Western Oder. This area is situated within the Lower Oder Valley Landscape Park, so it is prohibited to sail there by boats with engines. Silence, calm and clear water makes Miedzyodrze a paradise for water birds, beavers, otters and rare plant species. For those eager for adventures and communing with wild and unspoiled nature the best way to see this region is by kayak, which makes it possible to discover its wild and intimate corners. While kayaking through a picturesque network of winding canals, you pass fields of forget-me-nots, kingcups, irises, ferns and hundreds of beautifully blossoming plants. From below duckweed, the limbs of dead trees stick out. Among dense bulrush you can look out for about 200 species of birds that have their hatcheries here, including herons, cormorants, sea eagles, buzzards and kingfishers. The winding flood waters of Międzyodrze are the result of human activity. The remains of regulation works from the beginning of the 19th Century such as forgotten sluices, pumping stations, embankments, etc. make a huge impression. Tours around Miedzyodrze are organised each week from the first Sunday in June till the middle of September, by „Miedzyodrze” Stanica Wodna (near Dziewoklicz beach). It is also possible to rent kayaks there for individual tours. Stanica is managed by the Regional Division of Szczecin PTTK – Tel. 091 434 56 24

The Kana Theatre operates in the following areas: popularization and promotion of culture in such aspects as: theatre, performing arts, music, and interdisciplinary forms (with a special focus on artistic activities transgressing limits of particular genres, using various languages, searching for codes of communication with the audience beyond dramatic text and in the space of experiment); own artistic activity: work on their own productions, including performances, theatre-related projects, artistic and socially oriented action as well as other forms of cultural activities; cultural education: exchange of theatre-related experiences and practices, programs of perfecting acting techniques, training artistic leaders and cultural animators, promoting knowledge about the theatre as a method of self-development, promoting experimental and alternative theatre, improving knowledge, techniques and skills of people interested in folklore and traditions of various cultures. The Kana Theatre continues the idea of the cultural centre formulated by Zygmunt Duczyński. The program of the Kana’s activities is based on the key concept of originality and personal aspect in relation to both particular artists and the artistic team: selection of topics, projects and areas of activity is closely related to both the range of interests (and research) of individual members of the team, and to the collectively worked out program line. This position makes it possible to maintain the continuity and progressive character of the accomplished projects. Calendar - http://www.kana.art.pl/kalendarium
