The second part of voyages around #Szczecin: Szczecin Zdroje (= springs, as in the source of water).
We're going to find two highlights around there: Park Leśny Zdroje (= Springs Forest Park), and Puszcza Bukowa (= Beechwood), with Bukowe Zdroje (= Beech Springs) reserve. I'm going to focus on the first one today. As for Puszcza Bukowa, I'm going to say only that it's a huge forest with lots of hills, and it's kinda like going to the mountains. You can spend hours there.
As for Park Leśny Zdroje, it's got interesting landscape too. I've photographed its four most important highlights (in my opinion) for your viewing pleasure:
1. Jezioro Szmaragdowe (= Emerald Lake), named after its characteristic water color. There's a walking path across its southern and eastern shore, as well as on top of the surrounding hills. However, there's also a lot of mosquitoes there.
2. "Oko na Szczecin" (= Eye on Szczecin) overview. Unfortunately, it's been overgrown badly with surrounding shrubs. Hard not to think that "the world has moved on".
3. A #tunnel of old mine railroad. It's in a middle of a slightly overgrown path in the middle of a gully. No rails remain, though.
4. Czanowskie Wzgórze (= Chan Hill?). A nice overlook over a cliff. This one's not overgrown at all; also has no protective railings, and the ground is declining towards the cliff. Just saying, as an acrophobic person.

Just had to post the clip of this squirrel that we fed.
It's a kind of squirrel shelter. Squirrels that were injured or raised by humans and can't be brought back into the wilderness are there. We just saw this one -maybe a good sign that it's not needed a lot.
Anyways. The little guy seemed to be happy for the nuts.
