A 395-metre-long pier

The pier serves both as a walking area and a marina from where cruises to Swinoujście and the German harbours of Usedom set off. The first short pier was built in this place in 1885, and it was soon replaced by a 300 meters long pier. It was destroyed by German troops during the I World War, to prevent Russian troops use it to invade the city. It was rebuilt in 1920 and stood until 1954, when it was destroyed by the storm. The now-existing pier was finished in 2004.
