Szczecin is famous for its local fried snack called Pasztecik (pron: pashtecheek).
When you set your eyes on the massive 2 ton machine at Wojska Polskiego Street, you immediately know you’re witnessing something very rare and special. But no one would guess that the machine was built in a Soviet arms factory with the purpose of feeding an entire army regiment of the Red Army in under an hour!
Visiting this place is probably the only place in Szczecin where you can feel what it was like in a Soviet Satellite in the 60s and 70s because not much has changed here since then, including the decor and the service.
The Pasztecik itself is like a savory donut. It is available with meat, cheese and mushroom, cabbage and mushroom and egg fillings. You can also buy some beet soup called Barszcz (pron: barshch) to go with it.
PRICE: under 3PLN each
Address: Wojska Polskiego 46
Mon-Fri 10am – 7pm
Sat 10am -4pm
***NOTE: You can try Pasztecik in various locations around town, including most shopping centers in Szczecin. They may have other fillings, such as spinach, but they don’t have this special atmosphere that the one on Wojska Polskiego Street offers.
Also I would NOT recommend the pasztecik near the train station.
