The U-boot basin, located in an artificial bay of the Świna River, was built in 1944, as a permanent base for ferries of the German Army as well as a stopping place for U-boots of the Kriegsmarine training flotilla from Szczecin; also motor torpedo boats and smaller war vessels used to station here. Next to the basin (in the northern part) there are ruins of the workshop hall where warships calling at the harbour were being served. Nowadays the harbour is used mainly by fishermen and canoeists.
