All about the POZNAN CITY TOUR.

Poznan is one of the oldest cities in Poland, with incredible sights of immense historic value. Discover this rich heritage while admiring the Archcathedral (where it is widely believed in the year 966 the baptism of Poland’s first Duke Mieszko I took place); enjoy the old market square with the impressive town hall called the pearl of the Polish Renaissance; try the local specialty – Saint Martin’s croissants – while hearing different facts, legends, and anecdotes about Poznan.

The tour starts on the old market square where you can enjoy the beauty of the town hall from the 16th century, envisioned by the Italian architect Giovanni Baptista Quadro. Learn the legends of Poznan’s goats and find out why they are today’s symbol of the city.  During a pleasant stroll you will discover the Royal Castle, listening to the sad legend of the wife of King Przemysl II – Ludgarda. In front of the Bazaar Hotel, learn about the very specific life conditions of the people of Poznan under German rule in the 19th and at the beginning of the 20th century, their struggle to preserve their national identity, and their heroic fight for independence.  Later, allow yourself to be amazed by the beauty of the richly decorated baroque Parish Church of Saint Stanislaus.

The tour concludes in the oldest part of the city, the enchanting Cathedral Island, flanked by the rivers Warta and Cybina. You will visit the Archcathedral Basilica of St. Peter and St. Paul and find out about the beginnings of Polish history when visiting the royal tombs of Mieszko I and his son King Boleslaw the Brave.
