GALAXY is currently the largest shopping and entertainment centre in the West Pomeranian region and the only centre in Stettin with such functional programme. Located in the very heart of Stettin, at one of the main traffic junction, it constitutes an integral part of the city centre.
GALAXY consists of two parts - the older one, opened in 2003 and the new one, launched in 2017 - connected with one another by shopping arcades at levels 0 and 1. The individual levels of Galaxy are interconnected by sidewalks and escalators as well as panoramic elevators and staircases.
The communication solutions adapted by the Centre enable the disabled to fully access all of the functions on all of the levels. The main entrances were designed in such a way that they can be accessed directly from the level of surrounding sidewalks.
The Centre is connected with the city’s traffic network with a system that enables free motor traffic.
The Centre may be accessed directly from the individual parking levels, and the underground part is linked with the Centre by elevators and moving sidewalks. The information point is located in the central part of the atrium, at the joint between the two parts of the Centre.
A 21 meters high fountain, located in the middle of the old part of the object, is the largest object of this kind in the whole region. The two buildings , constituting the single block of the Centre, are covered with glass domes, the one over the new part is 43 meters in diameter - it is 3 meters wider than the dome over the Berlin’s Reichstag.
The construction of the new part of the Galaxy involved a complete replacement of the façade. A modern, glass and aluminium façade not only integrates both parts of the building but also gives the Galaxy an entirely new image, what influences also the presence of this part of the city.
The GALAXY Centre enjoys an unabated popularity amongst the customers. It is visited every year by approximately 11 millions of people. We make constant efforts to make our customers feel comfortable. And we try our best to meet the changing needs. Thanks to all this, in the recent years the object has become a laureate of many prestigious awards:
Zloty Laur Klienta 2017 (customer’s golden laurel) and Grand Prix Laur Klienta 2017 (grand prix customer’s laurel)
