For many years, Poznań has been one of the most eagerly visited cities in Poland. And you don’t have to spend a fortune to discover its most interesting places. Let us introduce you to some of the best attractions in the capital city of the Greater Poland region that you can visit for free.
Ostrów Tumski is the only island at the river Warta that can still be visited today. It is a quiet place, perfect for a walk and thinking about the origins of the Polish country. This place is also the location of the Poznań Cathedral, which dates back to the beginnings of christianity in our country. It was established in the second half of the 10th century, which makes it one of the oldest churches in Poland. This was the place, where the first kings of Poland were burried: Bolesław Chrobry, Mieszko II and Kazimierz Odnowiciel.
