    Get a plan from tourist office , to follow red or golden routes , red is the longest. This walk takes you to best places but also passes through some scruffy areas.

    There we've had some good convenient food, serving fast by waitresses which were pretty friendly. It's a crowded, hasty place inside the Galaxy Mall. The food is familiar-American, your nice and dependable fast food. A place where folks finally seemed to be open and friendly towards tourists. Fries were yummy crunchy and not oily.

    The Restaurant is a small one (30 seats), and very local - The three times I dined there - only Polish visited the place. The setting is in an old bakery (in the cellar of a condomennium building) - but don't worry, the menu is actually with English 'sub-titles'. It is owned and run by a young couple and their cook compete clearly for the title of 'Le Chef'. Only draw-back, you have to wait for the food, as it is done from 'scratch' and with fresh raw materials (no pre-coocked and micro-oven heated food here), so expect ½ hour before the feast starts. Their menu card contains International/French cousine combined with Polish specialities (like raw, minced meat with raw eggs - if you dare). The menu card is better described as a book the size of a telephone index - but true to the want of good cocking and fresh materials, it is not all of the items available every day. True to the past as a bakery - the bread you get (with spicy oils), while passing the time until the food is done, is truely some of the best I've ever tasted. In all - a place you have to visit if you end up in Szczecin, and the price ... big dinner max. 10-15 Euro/Dollar - including coffee and drinks

    Favorite Dish: It is difficult to pin-point one, as I have only been there 3 times - but for soup/starter, try their onion soup (only my wife makes it better) or Zurek (Polish Soup). The Zander filet plate is great - so is their spare-ribs and smoked salmon/vegitable plate (Zeberka). Couldn't find space for dessert - sorry

    Train times can be got from internet PKP Polish railways or Bahn,de German site in english. At the station look for your desination on large board . If you journey is on local trains several ticket windows are available possible long queues. If you are travelling Intercity train there is a office to go in . The sign looks like ICCC. Originally called Berlin railway station in 1843 when the rail link started.

    Done just a quick walk through that Galaxy Mall while looking for postcards/stationary only. But looks nice there with the regular stuff one can buy at malls. Unfortunately, though "geared up" with my Polish dictionary, salesfolks at stores haven't been too helpful with my language issues. Anyway, there one can probably find everything one is shopping for.

    Really have to say that I am truly impressed that in Szczecin the postal office works 7 days a week. Even on Sundays they are open. That's really something great and very useful about this city. No German city provides with such an awesome service.
