The Swinoujscie Fortress

The construction of fortifications at the mouth of the Świna started in the Middle Ages and continued practically without a break right up to the present day. This was because of Świnoujście's geographical location and its significance for trade, maritime economy and defence. The construction of Świnoujście's forts started after the first armed conflict with the Danes in 1849.
