“Nce river view banking”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2012

This is the place to go in Szczecin in the summer. If you want a drink or dinner, go to the ship Ladoga rather than the restaurants up on the banking.

Probably the most known landmark in Szczecin. Great place to take a walk or just hang out. But dont go to the restaurants in the near vicinety, theyre a rip off.

“The symbol of Szczecin”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2010

Waly Chrobrego (Chrobry Ramparts/ Waterfront or Hakenterrasse in German) are one of Szczecin's biggest attractions, not only for the tourists but also among the locals as a favourite place for walks and hanging out. Located just on the banks of Odra River (Oder), the ramparts were built in early 1900s and offer lovely views of harbour and the river.
When on Waly, make sure to see the monument of Hercules fighting with a Centaur on the upper terrace, as well as the fountain and two lighthouse-like columns situated on the lower terrace - street level (just down the stairs). You're then only few steps from the banks of the Odra River (across a busy road of Jana z Kolna) and a short walk along them is highly recommended. There's always some boats/ ships docked in there, you can start your harbour cruise from here, have a lunch in one of the pubs or on Ladoga restaurant or even visit one of the ships if they are open for tourists at the time. There's further restaurants/ bars located on top of Waly Chrobrego - more posh & pricey Chrobry Restaurant and Columbus and Colorado - one at each end of the ramparts' promenade. You should definitely find at least half an hour in your schedule and try to see & enjoy Waly 'the local way' - sit on top of the upper-terrace stairs or on one of many benches along the promenade, enjoy the views and people-watch. You will also find some very interesting buildings along the Waly Chrobrego Street (on top of ramparts) - those housing the local government, Maritime Museum, The Modern Theater and finally the Maritime University of Szczecin (hence so many students and good atmosphere on Waly).
The ramparts are also a centre of Days of the Sea/ Sail Szczecin Festival taking place every year in June. It's an interesting event with loads of concerts and maritime activities for a whole family, however Waly are extremely crowded at the time which might be a bit of a charm-wrecker for tourists seeking peace and quiet.
All in all Waly Chrobrego is a real must see when in Szczecin and especially spectacular when seen from the river or from The Castle Route.
