West Fort – the first fortifications at the mouth of the Świna river appeared at the beginning of the 17th century. They were erected by a commander of the imperial army, Albrecht von Wallenstein, for the defence against the Danes and Swedes. Around these fortifications, fierce and bloody fights took place during the Thirty Years’ War. The Swedes, who ruled Świnoujście at that time, were expanding the already existing defensive ramparts for next several dozen years. In 1721, Świnoujście returned under the rule of Prussia, and in 1746 Frederick II, King of Prussia, raised its rank to that of a sea harbour.
