Szczecin is one of my favourite Polish words along with szczeszcze (hook
under first e)

Since my IPA has evaporated it is roughly 'sh' from shoe immediately
followed by 'ch' from church to get those two sounds together.

I sometimes think that these Slavic combinations have to be in your DNA to
say them.
