If you like mixing nostalgic and modern vibes, you’ll love Szczecin, also known as the “Paris of the north”.
This oddly-shaped Polish city was probably founded at the beginning of the eighth century by some Slavic tribes. Passing into Polish, Swedish and Prussian hands, it ended up being a German city until 1945, when it was eventually given to Poland. After World War II the city had suffered too many bombings and many areas were destroyed.
These areas are now rebuilt with colourful and pyramid-shaped constructions. But if you want to visit the most incredible building of all, you must add the Szczecin Philharmonic Hall to the top of your list.
