Seatrade Europe

The Szczecin and Swinoujscie Ports Authority participated in the international fair Seatrade Europe, held in Hamburg on 25-27 September. The fair attracted 270 exhibitors from over 50 countries.

Representatives of the ports of Szczecin and Swinoujscie together with Polsteam Agency, owner of a prestigious wharf of Waly Chrobrego and a tour operator of Baltic Gateway presented the offer of ports on the Oder estuary. The offer focused on servicing big tourist cruise ships in the Baltic Sea Region.
The offer of the ports attracts a growing attention of passenger ships owners and world tour operators who seek new and interesting places for their ships to call at.

Undoubtedly, the most important asset, apart from tourist attractions of Szczecin and its vicinity, is the possibility of visiting Berlin. For Berlin, Szczecin is the closest sea port and thus it offers the possibility to visit two countries during one day.

Unfortunately, cruises are planned two years in advance. According to a tentative estimation, 5-6 cruisers will call at the port of Szczecin next year.
