This was one of the highlights of our trip, with scenic views over the river and its collection of tall sailing ships, river boats and activity. Whichever level of the promenade you choose, there is plenty to see and be part of, but the water level and museum level are separated by 128 steps and no lifts, so access for... More

It is my hometown and during the years Waly Chrobrego changed a lot. Now it is a nice place to visit with kids. There are lot of restaurants where you can seat and eat or drink something. Beside that you can always visit Museum and climb the tower to have a beautiful panoramic view to whole city.

Eventually it should be possible to walk the full length of the promenade as far as the railway station which is convenient for getting a tram back up the hill into the city centre. Impressive buildings form a backdrop [reminded me of Liverpool-similar type of city] Café with a great view and the sun shining.

WARNING: The location shown by the tripadvisor pin was waaay off the mark. The address is correct-this is in the city of Szczecin.We visited Aug 9,2013 and coincidentally they were hosting the Szczecin Firefighter Challenge ( kind of like a strongman competition for firefighters). The streets were blocked off and it was set up like a carnival. Great atmosphere and... More

Apparently it's THE place to visit in Szczecin. I went there for a few walks but to be honest I could not really see any magic there. The waterfront is quite nice and when one is lucky it's possible to see some interesting ships but it didn't seem spectacular to me in any way. Nice for a walk but didn't... More

At the beginning of the twentieth century, Szczecin was called Venice of the North, unfortunately those days are only a few saved fragments. One of them Wały Chrobrego. This is one of the most characteristic monuments Szczecin. It is in the oldest part of the city where happens many cultural events in the city. At Wały Chrobrego are great restaurants,... More

Superb river Odra wharf, with magnificent views, magnificent buildings and magnificent atmosphere, especially on weekends and during special events organised at the bottom of the embankment, when the street running between Wały Chrobrego and the river is shot for motorists and all that area turns into one big funfair. At the top of embankment you got big grey building with... More
