Świnoujście [ɕfʲinɔˈui̯ɕt͡ɕɛ] ( listen) (German: Swinemünde [ˈsʋi:nəˌmʏndə], both names meaning Świna mouth) is a city and seaport on the Baltic Sea and Szczecin Lagoon, located in the extreme north-west of Poland. It is situated mainly on the islands of Usedom and Wolin, but also occupies smaller islands, of which the largest is Karsibór island, once part of Usedom, now separated by the Piast Canal (formerly the Kaiserfahrt) dug in the late 19th century to facilitate ship access to Szczecin (Stettin).

I like this beach because it is a long, clean beach with a great deal of access for only a low parking fee or free if you ride a bike. The view of the Ferries and ships is great and the water, while cool, is nice and clear (where we accessed there were no weeds or trash). Having a hotel on the beach is nice but not really necessary because of the ease of getting access. Bring your lunch and an umbrella as well as your beach towels.

Be prepared for a tough climb! There are lots of steps here with a great view across into Swinoujscie at the top.

This is a tour on old German fortifications used later by Polish army as a command center for Baltic Sea West operations in Układ Warszawski. There are few tunnels connecting bunkers. 2 of them are open now for tourists others are under renovation as current owners start to open it for public in May 2014.
We can see there some history including recently declassified map of Układ Warszawski plans to invade West, but this is not the most important part - the tour guide is military like corporal making jokes and amuses adults and specially kids - my daughter was happy and laughing all the time :)

One of the most representative places in Swinoujscie. You can take a stroll by the seaside, visit the Stawa Mlyny and then follow the path by the canal. Perfect place for a romantic walk.

The views from top are nothing special. You can see the harbor, the sea, a church but that's pretty much it, mainly you see lots and lots of blocks of flats. However, the tower itself is quite impressive. Inside the tower there are many decks with stylish iron chairs and tables, the walls around the stairs are decorated with a century old photos of Swinoujscie. I highly recommend the visit, after all, the fee of 6 zloty (1,50 euro) is really not much.

This fort offers a great fun for kids, they have a room full of old militaria including guns, pikes, helmets and other cool stuff. You can all dress up, mix and match as you wish and have great photos. If you like old citadels this is a must-go.
