Slupsk (Słupsk) is a medium-sized city along
the Słupia River in the northwestern part of the Pomeranian
Voivodship. It received its city rights in the beginning of the
14th century and joined the Hanseatic League not long thereafter.
For almost three centuries, at the end of the Middle Ages, Slupsk
was the capital of the Duchy of (Western) Pomerania. The
Castle of the Pomeranian Dukes, which currently
house the Museum of Central Pomerania, can still
be visited today. Other places of interest include the Dominican
Church of St Jack, the Church of St Mary, and the historic 14th
century Castle Mill.
Slupsk has a relatively broad cultural offer, including a number of theaters and some reknown music festivals. As a regional commercial center, it also provides ample shopping opportunities, for instance in the modern shopping mall Jantar or at centrally located Galeria Slupsk.
