The City Tourist Route

The City Tourist Route

The City Tourist Route is a 7-km-long loop which connects 42 sites – the most interesting monuments and places worthseeing. The idea behind the route was to commemorate the 750th anniversary of granting town privileges to Szczecin. The route is marked by an easily found red dotted line painted on the pavement, and thus the common name of the trail is the “Red Route”. Numbers in circles act as supplementary signs corresponding to each site on the route. Near to each number an information board with a detailed description of the object is either suspended on the wall of the building or standing alone. A pocket guidebook published in various languages, including a map of the route, can be purchased at the tourist information centres, the local seat of Polish Tourist and Sightseeing Society and in bookstores. The route begins and ends in front of the Szczecin Central Railway Station. The following sites are on the City Tourist Route (the numbers correspond to the numbering along the route): 1.

Golden Trail

There is no such a walking trail in any other Polish city. It leads from the city center from The Pomeranian Dukes' Castle through John Paul II Alley, Kasprowicza Park to the forest. Although it is a long way to go it is worth traveling as a whole by for example combining the walk with the bike tour. After visiting the antique part of the city, you can ride a bike through Jasne Błonia Alleys, Kasprowicza Park with its charming Rusałka Lake and Summer Theater to the Rose Garden. Next, following the forest pathways you can reach some city recreational facilities. You can take a rest in the city lido or on a landscaped forest fields.
