Photographer's Note

One of the most beautiful places in Europe - Chrobry Shafts (Kings Boleslav Brave Shafts), formerly Terraces Haken. From here you can see a vast panorama of the Odra River and the harbor. Terraces are 500 meters long and lies 19 meters above the level of the Odra.

The oldest written history of this area dates back to the sixteenth century. In 1873, demolition began on the eighteenth-century fortifications of Szczecin. With great commitment Mayor of Szczecin Hermann Haken in the years 1902-1905 on the site of Fort Leopold formed terrace. From the terrace of the river Oder wide staircase leads on both sides of the two pavilions erected to serve as the entrance to the - formed today in the remains of the fortifications - a restaurant. U there is a fountain adorned with statues of John from Kolno and Wyszak and two tall columns stylized lighthouse.

In the years 1906-1912 in the northern part of the terrace was built contemporary art complex for the district of Szczecin, where now they are established authorities Zachodniopomorskie. Moreover, in the southern part of the Brave Ramparts building complex is located at the Maritime Academy (from the years 1902-1905 and 1918-1921) and housed in one building Modern Theatre and Marine Branch of the National Museum. Additionally, near the Ramparts the Brave is a large park.

Building the Regional Office in Szczecin - the historic administration building opened in 1911, located at the Brave Ramparts in Szczecin.
The building was opened in 1911.
The building was harmed during the raid on Szczecin during World War II.

The present building of the Regional Office was the first seat of Polish municipalities and Peter Zaremba on lead, which on April 30, 1945 ordered the building of posting on the Polish flag.

In 2011, in connection with a century of existence, the building made available to explore and set out on its territory attractive tourist routes covering both underground (with the inscrutable, flooded by water running toward the tunnel Oder) and towers (you can see here with accumulated by the Germans , in an unknown order, a collection of gargoyle).
