 • Stargard

Stargard Szczecinski (pop. 75,000) lies in the historic Pomerania province, in north-west Poland, 36 km south-east of Szczecin, 40 km from the Polish-German border and 170 km north-east of Berlin.

The town dates back to the 11th century. At the beginning, it enjoyed an era of prosperity as a member of Hansa, but in 1454 it got involved in commercial disputes with Szczecin and was totally burnt down. Under the Westfalian peace treaty it became part of the Branderburg district, and the town was slowly reconstructed despite the continuous passage of foreign troops. In the 19th century, the town flourished once again. During World War II, the city hosted Stalag IID, a prisoners of war camp. War operations resulted in 70% of Stargard Szczecinski being destroyed, including almost all of its monumental part (Starówka). The town was spectacularly rebuilt afterwards.
