Szczecin- Baltic Tall Ships Regatta 2015

In the North-West Poland, there lies a proud and historic city of Sczecin. (Western Pomeranian Region).

szczecin1

To the amusement of many, Szcecin is a famous port city but no…it does not actually have the direct access to the Baltic Sea . Surprised?

Szczecin is considered to be a crucial seaport as it is  closely connected with the nearby Swinoujscie port .

A large Odra river  and the “Sczecin” Lagoon, connect Sczecin with the Baltic Sea.

lagoonszczecin

There is a large shipbuilding center and a very distinguished Marine Academy in Szczecin, which produces the  finest sailors that work all over the world on various ships and ports. ( As we are also originally from Szczecin,  we must confess that the majority of our friends did study there,  and are now employed in the marine/ship industry).

szczecin2

While Szczecin attracts mostly business travelers, it can also form an interesting tourist destination. Several enchanting sights, the many parks, and the impressive number of bars are Szczecin’s main attractions.

The city is located near the German border, so you can flight directly to the large Schönefeld Airport (SXF) – Berlin .

Szcecin also has a small airport (called Szcecin Goleniow) , but only a few planes from Ireland and UK fly there.

Each year Sczecin hosts a special Sea festival to celebrate our Baltic sea , and since the number of years,  it also co-hosts the amazing Baltic Tall ships Regatta.

This year, the tall ships will start their journey from the port in Klaipeda, Lithuania on Monday 8th June and will arrive to Szczecin on Friday 12th June. They will stay in Szczecin for the consecutive 3 days, to depart on Monday June 15th.

tallshipsregatta

More details about the event here: http://www.sailtraininginternational.org/events/baltic-tall-ships-regatta-2015

85 ships in total  from all around the world will take place in this year’s Regatta. Ships such as “Utopia” from Denamrk, “Swan” from UK, “Ingo” from Sweeden, “Hossanna ” from France,  “Cisne Branco” from Brazil, “Bonaventura” from Poalnd , “Akela” from Russia or “Johann Smidt” from Germany to  name a few.

Full list of ships available here: http://www.tallshipsraces.com/Vessels/Race_Entry_List_Results.asp

Paul Bishop, Head of Race Directorate at Sail Training International, organisers of the event said, “This promises to be an excellent Tall Ships Regatta and popular with many of the sail training vessel operators in the Baltic. The two experienced sail training friendly host ports of Klaipeda and Szczecin will be working hard to ensure that the young international crews will have a memorable time and that the needs of the ships will be met”

This is how the event looked like , last year!

Dublin, Dublin, Dublin-my fav hotels

Ok so …most of people have this strange list of all the places they would like to visit before they die!

As you can imagine, those lists vary, as people and tastes do….However, there is almost always one country that features prominently on nearly every list. You know that I am not making this up…IT’S IRELAND!

ireland2

Yeah…imagine this…. green and romantic, majestic and historical, as if untouched by time.

Ireland was very lucky as it was not destroyed in the II World World such as Poland for example (Warsaw was bombarded and destroyed by 90% so you get the picture) No!!! Ireland still has a lot of historical buildings, old medieval castles, gates, churches and so on and so forth. You can feel like you traveled back in time!

ireland3

But what can be a country without its capital city? Dublin really is a magnificent city. You will probably find it much smaller than other European capitals but..it is surely busy and a lot is going on. We have a great range of attractions, not to mention some of the best pubs in the world. It’s a modern city with big companies such as Google, AdRoll . Johnson and Jonsnon, Abott or Twitter now residing in Ireland! Bet you didn’t think that hehe 🙂 It looks so cool at night with the new bridges and architecture too!

To be able to explore Dublin and enjoy the city to the fullest you must choose a good iconic hotel, that would not only provide exceptional level of service, great local food, good location and facilities. No you want something more, something intangible such as EXPERIENCE! 

Hey..what does that mean? Well, in my view it means:

A) Enjoying yourself to the fullest

B) Falling in love with the hotel

C) Developing a feeling of nostalgia towards it

D) Feeling sad when you are about to leave

Following that logic , here are some hotels in Dublin who have that power! You are welcome 🙂 🙂 🙂

1.  The Shelbourne Dublin

-The world famous Shelbourne Hotel is a timeless landmark in the heart of Dublin, located in St Stephens Green

-Founded in 1824 The Shelbourne a Renaissance Hotel is a place where history has been made,  the Irish Constitution was drafted, literary masterpieces were penned and society was shaped.

-Today as part of the worldwide Renaissance brand the hotel has been dramatically restored to its full original splendour

2. The Westin Dublin

-The Westin is located in an opulent 19th century bank building in the centre of Dublin.

-Located on the corner of Westmoreland Street and College Green, overlooking the historic Bank Of Ireland building

-Dark wood and old fashioned comforts dominate the bedrooms while the public rooms make good use of the restored splendour of the building.
