PLACES TO VISIT AND THINGS TO DO IN POZNAN
The Cathedral Island
The Old Market Square
Poznan is considered one of the most beautiful cities in Poland for good reason. And this is due in part to the amazing Old Market Square and its incredibly colourful rows of houses.
The Croissant Museum
Another interesting, yet this time extremely delicious attraction in Poznan is the Croissant Museum.
Lesser Basilica of St. Stanislaus
Just around the corner, as you turn to exit the square, you will find the Lesser Basilica of St. Stanislaus.
You might think it is already beautiful on the outside, all dressed up in red and white, but wait until you see its spellbinding interior!
The basilica dates back to the 17th century, and is one of the finest examples of Baroque architecture in Poland.
They also hold organ concerts inside the church, and we were actually lucky to stumble upon one. It was quite impressive, so if the opportunity comes your way, don’t miss it!
Stary Browar Shopping Centre
Weranda Lunch & Wine
The Imperial Castle
Completion took a short 5 years, but after the incorporation of Greater Poland into Nazi Germany in 1939, the authorities decided to transform the castle into Hitler’s residence.
Now the castle is used as a cultural centre with art galleries, a puppet theatre, music clubs and restaurants.
The square in front of it is used for the St Martin’s Day parade every November 11, while the park behind the building is a nice place to stroll through, with a gorgeous lion fountain on one side.
Totally our of sink, the facade features sculpted figures of Hansel and Gretel and Little Red Riding Hood.
