Description:
Pomorzany is a municipal neighbourhood of the city of Szczecin, Poland situated on the left bank of Oder river, south of the Szczecin Old Town. It borders Gumieńce to the west, Turzyn to the northwest, Nowe Miasto to the north, Międzyodrze-Wyspa Pucka to the east, and Gmina Kołbaskowo (Ustowo village) to the south. As of January 2011 it had a population of 21,957.

Before 1945 when Stettin was a part of Germany, the German name of this suburb was Stettin-Pommerensdorf.

History

The first traces of human activity in the area of today's Pomorzany date from the late Neolithic period. The stabilization of the settlement in this area occurred in the 8th century. The village (under the name of Pomerenstorp) was first mentioned in 1253 in document of Barnim I, Duke of Pomerania.

The northern part of Pomorzany (German: Pommerensdorfer Anlagen) was incorporated into the city in 1864, while the southern part in 1939, during the creation of Groß-Stettin (lit. Great City of Szczecin), when neighbouring municipalities were amalgated into Stettin.

During World War II Germans opened here several large labor camps for foreigners near the industrial plants. Allied air raids destroyed many residential buildings and factories.

The suburb was eventually incorporated into Szczecin on 5 July 1945.
