Szczecin

Wały Chrobrego

12 Mar 2021
Wały Chrobrego is an observation terrace of epic Greco-Roman proportions. You can't miss it! It was built in 1902 in place of old riverbank fortification and named Hakenterrasse in honour of Hermann Haken, the mayor of Szczecin at the time. However, since Szczecin became Polish again, Hakkenterasse was renamed in honour of King Bolesław Chrobry (AKA 'the Brave') and so it is now Wały Chrobrego (ENG: Chrobry Embankment). The sculpture down the front is of Hercules fighting a Centaur, created by the famed German artist Ludwig Manzel.
