One of the top attraction in Szczecin is the Waly Chrobrego Promenade. In German, it is called ‘Hakenterrasse’. It offers the great views on Oder river and the port. Do visit the Maritime Museum, Muzeum Morskie in the center of Waly as it houses some historical artifacts of the city and  big collection of African and maritime artifacts. It is a scenic and historic walking area as well as for hanging out. It is only 1.7 miles from the city center. On the upper terrace, there is also a reminder of Hercules. He was in the motion of fighting with a Centaur.  Then if you move down to the lower terrace,
you will see a fountain. Across the busy road of Jana z Kolna, you are recommended to have a short walk along the banks of Odra River. Alternatively, you can take a harbour cruise ride and visit some ships which are open for tourists. Or just sit on the many benches along the promenade or on the upper-terrace stairs. People watching can be fun. Go to the Modern Theater that has a nice atmosphere. Last but not least check out the ramparts which are the centre of Days of the Sea/Sail Szczecin Festival in June. Lots of concerts for the entire family to enjoy and best if you like maritime activities. A must see is the spectacular view from the Castle Route or from the river.
