Poland, Stetin and Świnoujście by Paulina


Paulina is coming from polish coastal city Świnoujście. The city official boarders embrace 44 islands, when only 3 are inhabited. The only way commute between all of them is to take a ferry since there are no bridges. The place looks wonderful during the summer days. Unfortunately tourists already discovered it. (Especially kite surfers admire great wind conditions.) That is why if you want to avoid the crowds better came here in early autumn.
From the other hand Stetin is more popular on the ordinary day basis. It is the adjacent, much larger city with an appealing night life. Definitely more attractive for young people: here are main universities.
Asked about Gothenburg, Paulina has a distance to what is called ‘tourist attractions’. Even for newcomers she recommends her favorite walk along the river: from Brunnsparken till Älvsborg bridge.
For the once staying a bit longer here, she suggests to visit city library. She feels that libraries in Gothenburg are more sort of cool spots to hang out rather then places to study.


AGORA is a talk-show,
where together with my guests in the studio,
we are trying to find a new perspective
of the city of Gothenburg:

Inside out and outside in.

In order to get a new point of view of the city we are presenting Gothenburg in a juxtaposition to a wide array of place all around the world.

My guests are citizens of Gothenburg: some of them have been living here just few months, while the others-for few years. They are coming from different places all around the world. They are inviting the listeners to their hometowns and comparing their cities to Gothenburg (the outside in perspective).

Some of my interlocutors have been living in Gothenburg (or in its close neighbourhood) since they are born. They are sharing with their experience of this city as a point of departure to discover other remote places. They are comparing the other spots to Gothenburg (inside out perspective).

All in all, the program is about presenting other cities vs Gothenburg.

You are also welcome to join the program as my guest!

Enjoy the show :)!
