Poznan is among the oldest cities in Poland, and was one of the most important centers in the early Polish state in the 10th century, whose first rulers were buried in Poznan’s cathedral. Nowadays it is a center of trade, industry and education; the city located half way between Warsaw and Berlin.
- See the monumental Cathedral of St. Peter and St. Paul in Ostrow Tumski, an island among water of river Warta and Cybina, where, as legend says, Poznan was founded. Ostrow Tumski is also one of the most interesting complexes of Gothic and Baroque architecture in Poland. This ”sacred city” abounds in historical sights of which the most important ones include the Cathedral, the oldest in the country;
- See the Old Town with its famous Renaissance Town Hall where in the middle of the attic, above the clock, you can see two metal goats butting their horns 12 times every day at noon;
- Do not omit to visit Gniezno as it is the cradle of Polish state and the first capital of Poland. The most famous is the Gniezno Cathedral with its Portal – one of the most precious relics of Romanesque art in Europe. In 2016 we will celebrate the 1050 anniversary of the baptism of Poland;
- Visit Lichen, the second largest Sanctuary in Poland. The church is dedicated to Our Lady of Sorrows, Queen of Poland whose icon, perhaps dating back to the 18th century, is displayed in the basilica’s main altar. It is one of Poland’s principal pilgrimage sites.
