Poznan City Tour
Poznan is a leader among trade fair centers in Poland, even in Central and Eastern Europe but it is also one of the oldest cities in the country with a long and rich history. It is said that it is a cradle of Polish Christianity in the tenth century. This is a city which has many other attractions besides historical monuments such as parks, lakes and what should be mentioned – tasty local cuisine with a few specials which you will not get in any other part of the county. The must-see is of course is the charming Old Market Square with the Town Hall called a „pearl of the Renaissance” and colorful merchant houses around. The greatest tourist attraction is the clock tower where at noon each day two clock-work goats emerge from doors 12 times to beat their heads. Near the Old Market is also the Royal Castle where from the terrace you can admire the view of the whole city and the suburbs.
During this tour you will have the chance to discover the oldest district of Poznan – Ostrow Tumski located across the other side of the Warta river. Here is the impressive St. Peter and Paul’s Cathedral which was built as the first one in the Poland and is the burial place of Polish Kings.
Later on, we will take for a walk through the city center where you will also see the Emperor’s Castle built at the beginning of the 20th century in the Neo-Romansesque style for William II. It was meant to be the symbol of German domination in this region. In the end, he the emperor visited the castle only three times. After World War II, it was planned to be the residence of Adolf Hitler himself. Today, it is the center of culture, the Animation Theater and the Museum of the Poznan June 1956.
The area surrounding the castle is quite pleasant as well – nearby is a nice park with a fountain, the Grand Theatre and Collegium Minus of the Poznan University of Adam Mickiewicz. There is also a monument of two crosses which commemorate the Poznan June 1956.
We can finish the tour here or take you to Stary Browar (Old Brewery) – the most representative shopping mall in the city which is also an arts, cultural and business center.
*Optionally we can also take you to the Palmery if you would be interested.
A new attraction is the Poznan Croissant Museum where you can expand your knowledge about the history, dialect in Poznan and about how to make the famous St. Martin Croissants in this region. These are delicious local pastries with white poppy seed filling which have the status of Poznan’s very sweet treat for the last 150 years.
