This Polish city is located in the northwest of the country and is the capital of the West Pomeranian Voivodeship. It is also known by its German name, Stettin. It is located on the Oder River, very close to the border with Germany, and thanks to this you will be able to travel easily through the two countries. It should also be noted that much of Szczecin was destroyed during World War II, so it is not very touristy, as it does not have many old or historical buildings.
One of the most beautiful features of this city, and one that all students take advantage of, is the number of green areas that the city has. In them, you will be able to walk on foot, by bike, have barbecues and enjoy Lake Glebokie, for example.

In this Polish city, you will have the option of renting two different types of apartments: a studio apartment, for one or two people, or apartments with more rooms to share between several students. Each of the apartments has different characteristics, so you have to compare between them to choose the ideal one for you.
As a reference, the cost of a studio flat usually starts at € 320 per month onwards and a two-bedroom apartment to share starts at € 380 inwards. Pay attention to what is included in the price that appears, since in many cases you have to add an extra for the costs of utility bills and the community.
The option of renting a room in an apartment shared with other students is usually the most preferred by international young people, as it saves on rent and service costs compared to renting an entire apartment for just one. It also has the advantage of being able to share community experience with other young people, while having more independence than in a student residence, since you do not have to follow their rules or schedules.
Most of the available rooms are furnished, at least with the basics for a student that would be a bed, closet, desk and bookshelf. The cost of a room in a shared apartment in Szczecin usually has a minimum of € 120 per month and can go up to € 350, always depending on the characteristics it has and the location of the apartment.
