Impressive construction

As I understand generally tours are guided in Polish. There are booklets available in foreign languages. It is worth seeing. Bunkers from Second World War time. Impressive construction.

I was with the group of English-speaking people and we were offered a tour with the English guide without any extra fee!
It was an amazing tour and really well explained!
I definitely recommend!

No corona rules, no distance, partly no masks, no ventilation. Almost no german translation. Very uncomfortable.

Fantastic

Fantastic walk under Stettin. An English speaking guide led the way through the hidden safety rooms of the city. A place you can only see in a guided tour. Really interesting. Really made an impression and gave a good picture of what life was like for the civilians during the war and the Cold War.

Ciekawy fragment historii Szczecińskiej
Jul. 2019
Even though I was very keen to do the "Cold War" tour, I recommend the "World War II" tour as it covers more ground and is generally more comprehensive. If you have time, do both, but if you only have time for one tour then I certainly suggest following the advice of the tour guides and doing the World War 2 tour.
It is fascinating to see and learn about the tunnel system that was in use under Szczecin, and those responsible for running the tours are very knowledgeable and passionate about what they do.
I note some comments in previous reviews suggesting that only cash payment is possible, and advise that card payment is possible if you pre-purchase your tickets at the Centrum Turystyki MAGNOLIA (Magnolia Tourist Centre), which is located along ul. Kolumba.
As for the tours being done in Polish, I would only care to point out that this is Poland, and the language used in this country, funnily enough, is Polish. Written guides are provided in other languages, and some tours are run in English, especially when larger groups can be formed (which generally happens during the summer holidays).
The entrance to the tour is on Platform 1 of the railway station. You can't miss it!

Make Time to visit
Aug. 2019
A must visit in Szczecin, entry is at the Railway Station, tour lasts approximately 1.5 hours, interesting to see how Szczecin utilised the underground to house 2000+ people during air raids in WW2. Tunnels had water, toilets, heating all installed, even some beds for children and pregnant women. Photos are not allowed as they are directly under the railway station, Guide gave us an excellent description of how the tunnels were utilised, time to get people into them etc

Good and bad combined
Jun. 2019 • Friends
The underground trails are very interesting and well worth a visit. The entrance fee is also pretty low. The tour took about an hour and was pretty good without getting anywhere near similar tours in Berlin (Berliner Unterwelten).

But here the good stuff ends. They only accept cash and the guide only spoke polish! They hand you a booklet in your preferred language so you have a chance to read the information yourself while the guide rambled on in polish. The written information was comprehensive but my danish version was probably done by Google Translate... I think I still got the important parts though.
