Szczecin is a modern city that allows its inhabitants to live close to nature. Forests surrounding the city, parks and squares in its center, numerous islands of the Śródodrze, canals and huge backwaters give Szczecin a unique charm of a green, floating garden.
From the Chrobry Embankments - adjacent to the University of Applied Sciences, the National Museum and the Provincial Office - you can admire the view of the Odra River and moored training vessels of the Maritime University. Here, usually, larger events take place, like the annual June Days of the Sea, the gold of the oldtimers, or the finals of the tall ship regatta The Tall Ships Races.
From Waly Chrobrego it is worth going on a long walk along Boulevards and via Łasztownia and Most Kłodny reach Grodzka Island.
