The iron cross
If you happen to arrive to Szczecin in the late October, you should stay for the All Saints' Day (1st November). It's part of Polish tradition to go visit the graves of your relatives on that very special day. In the evening, the Central Cemetery in Szczecin shines like a precious stone - there are that much of candles at the graves.
Next to the Cemetery second gate at Karola Miarki Street, there's a huge iron cross. Each year on All Saints' Day, Szczeciners gather there, lighting candles in memory of people who died in riots in December 1970, when anti-communist protest broke out in the city. 16 people, killed by militia, were buried near this place.
If you're in Szczecin on 1st November, go there in the evening, light a candle and think about people who had to die back then so that Poland and Eastern Europe could become free.
You'll get there by tram no. 8 or bus no. 67 (Karola Miarki stop)
