The Kaskada is linked historically with Szczecin, because since 1889 there have been in that place, among other things, a club and entertainment complex with the largest billiards hall in Pomerania, and Universal Department Store. Only in 1959 was the Kaskada build there. It was the then biggest entertainment place in Poland. Big stars such as Helena Vondrackova, Anna German, or Czesław Niemen performed there. Artists from all over Europe used to play there. Unfortunately, despite being a great centre of culture and music, the Kaskada was thought to be infested with illegal money exchangers and prostitutes who used its popularity to shady activities. The building burnt down on 27th April 1981. The new shopping centre was built in 2011. You can find inside an exhibited part of the eighteenth century defensive wall that once surrounded Szczecin, and found during construction work.
