Jarmark Anny i Boguslawa
The 2nd Anna and Boguslaw’s Fair.
This year 2005 it took place in August.
Anna and Boguslaw are the names of prince couple who once owned Pomeranian Dukes' Castle and ruled in the Pomerania.
This fair is something new in Szczecin. In 2005 it was organised for the second time.

Here in Szczecin we also have a lot of fun these days.
In Szczecin there are a few public universities and some private ones.
In Szczecin ( a city which has 416.000 inhabitants) there are over 90.000 students. There are 17 shools of higher ecucation in Szczecin - a few national universities and several private ones.
Though Szczecin is situated about 60 km from the Baltic coast - the maritime character of Szczecin can be seen here. We have shipyards, the Maritime University ( and its students going on the streets , wearing uniforms ), in the middle of the city there is a marina.
We have also the Sea Festival. Then you can see the gala of sailing vessels, many concerst, the display of fire works.
The Szczecin's City Council have set the permanent term, when the Sea Festival in Szczecin will take place each year. It is organised in the second weekend ( from Friday till Sunday) of each June annually.
