Bydgoszcz: Gniezno & Biskupin Tour

If you have enough time to participate in an interesting tour while staying in Bydgoszcz, we would recommend visiting Gniezno and Biskupin. Gniezno is a city that will always be associated with the beginnings of the Polish state. It was the first capital of Poland and here we will come across monuments that are sometimes even over a thousand years old! Second point of our program will be one of Poland’s official National Historic Monuments – the archaeological open-air museum in Biskupin. Here we will have the opportunity to see the remains of an approximately 2500 years old settlement located on a peninsula on the Biskupin Lake.
