Słubice is a small border town between the Republic of Poland and the Federal Republic of Germany, existing since 1945. It has a population of around 20,000 and provides three border crossings. As a result, tourism, import and export of commercial goods in the region is strongly developed. Tourists coming from Germany willingly use the local exchange offices and make foreign exchange. The euro is very eagerly bought by travelers who plan to cross the border towards our western neighbors. Despite the many possibilities offered by the Internet, tourists are very eager to use currency exchange in a stationary exchange office.
Słubice, as an attractive tourist destination, with great natural values, attracts visitors from other parts of Poland, as well as from abroad. The forest complexes of the Rzepińska Forest, which surrounds the Słubice commune, encourage tourists to actively explore the area. Walkers, cyclists and runners enjoy the beauty of nature at any time of the year. The surrounding lake and river attract enthusiasts of many water sports. In the season, you can observe many amateurs of canoeing, sailing and windsurfing.
There is one border crossing directly in Słubice. In the commune there is also a railroad crossing (Kunowice) and a passenger and freight crossing - the Customs Clearance Terminal (Świecko). The region belongs to the Kostrzyn-Słubice Special Economic Zone and is very important for the development of trade with Germany and other European countries.
Germany is one of Poland's largest trade partners. Trade between countries reached record levels already in 2019 and continues to grow. The Słubice commune is of great importance in the import and export of commercial goods between Poland and its western neighbor, mainly due to its location and history. Until 1945 Słubice was a district of Frankfurt (O) and was called Dammvorstadt, which was changed to its present name after World War II. Originally, the city was chosen as the seat of the Rzepin County, later transformed into Słubicki County. The city developed very well and today we can find many institutions that support international transport and are related to forwarding and border clearance.<< Blog
