I seriously think soccer fans will have a good time in this city. It has a lot to offer.

The Centennial Hall (German: Jahrhunderthalle, Polish: Hala Stulecia (formerly Hala Ludowa - People's Hall)) is a historic building in Wrocław, Poland. It was constructed according to the plans of architect Max Berg in 1911–1913, when the city was part of the German Empire. As an early landmark of reinforced concrete architecture, it was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2006....
It was in the Lower Silesian capital of Breslau on 10 March 1813 where King Frederick William III of Prussia called upon the Prussian and German people in his proclamation "An Mein Volk" to rise up against Napoleon's occupation. In October of that year, at the Battle of Leipzig, Napoleon was defeated.

The opening of the hall was part of the celebration commemorating the 100th anniversary of the battle, hence the name.

Yes it was damaged preaty bad. During allied air raids/bombings in 1943/44 and than heavy figthings between German and Soviet armies aobout 70% of the City centre, 70/80% of seaport and 90% of industrial buildings were flatenned. So called socialistic urban planning also didn't help to restore - commie blocks in every polish town/city (you've been to Poland so you know what I mean). Regarding restoration Szczecin is realy improving last couple of years - i.e.: this year another 40 tenements was restored in it's centre.
IMO Szczecin is one of the most beautiful and interesting cities in Poland but still anonymous to most of Poles. Good reason to visit would be The Tall Ship Races final in 2013.
With population of 400 thousands (+) we've had 2,5 mln visitors during previous TTSR final in 2007 (4 days event).
Sorry that in your thread about Wrocław I wrote so much about another city, I hope you might find it ineresting though and hope Szczecin (with very similar history) will get on the same path of fast development as Wrocław. Cheers

Sadely I like Wroclaw more than Kraków

Wroclaw develops much more effectively, besides, it is ruled responsibly and efficiently.

Seriously? The Beloved Krakow? It seems like Krakow has a lot of great investments going for it, in terms of smaller scale architecture. It's on a very good level.

Wroclaw is the epitome of 'under-rated.' I really want to see it some time.

I know what you mean, Wroclaw is developing much more rapidly into a world class city. Krakow has some political, legal and historic impediments, for sake of a better word. Still, there is so much happening in Krakow and Wroclaw can't beat Krakow's charm and ambience...but it might one day

And yes, this train station will look quite nice. I hope to stop in it, in the summer of 2013.
