Poznan: Gniezno & Biskupin Tour

If you are staying in Poznan and have time for an interesting half day excursion, we would like to invite you for a trip to Gniezno and Biskupin. It is an obligatory tour if you would like to learn about the beginnings of Poland as a country because Gniezno was its first capital city. Here we will show you the famous 14th century Gothic Cathedral of the Assumption of St Mary. Afterwards, we will go to the Museum of the Origins of the Polish State for a short visit. Another important tourist attraction in our program will be one of Poland’s official National Historic Monuments – the Archaeological open-air Museum of Biskupin. You will admire the remains of a nearly 2500 years old settlement situated on a marshy peninsula on the Biskupin Lake.
