History and description
First football was played at the site of Stadion Miejski in 1914, but it took until 1925 for the first stands to be built. The stadium could hold about 15,000 spectators at that time.
Stadion Miejski im. Floriana Krygiera got largely destroyed in the Second World War, but got rebuilt in 1949.
The stadium hardly changed in the following decades. It was the first stadium in Poland to get converted into an all-seater in 1995.
Further smaller refurbishments were made in 2009 and 2010.
Stadion Miejski im. Floriana Krygiera is located in the west of Szczecin, just over 3 kilometres from the main railway station and a little less from the old town and city centre.
The walk from the old town takes about half an hour, but one can also take the tram. Take, for example, tram 7 from Plac Brama Portova. Take it in the direction of Krzekowo and get off at stop Karłowicza. The journey takes about 15 minutes.
From the north of the centre tram 5 is a better option. It stops, among others, at Plac Grunwaldzki. Get off at stop Karłowicza.
Address: ul Karłowicza 28, 71-102 Szczecin
