Photographer's Note

Waly Chrobrego formed in 1902 - 05 at the site of demolished fortifications (1873) in Szczecin. Viewing terrace is a part of the magnificent complex, from which one can go down towards the River Oder on the stairs built on both sides. The monument of "Herkules fighting with centaur" by Ludwig Manzel is located in the centre of the terrace. The adorned fountain at the base is embroidered in a modern manner with the figures by Jan z Kolna and Wyszak as well as two high columns stylized as lighthouses [one of them is visible in the picture]. In southern part there is the complex of Maritime Academy buildings (from 1902-05 and 1918-21) and Maritime Department of National Museum (1908-11) [visible in the picture].

Wilhelm Meyer - Schwartau was the designer of the whole architectural solutions.
