We welcome you to the top ten suggestions for your next trip to Poznan:
1. Old market square and Billygoats square
One of the main things to do in Poznan among tourists is to go to the old market square to enjoy local food and beer on the summer terrace of one of the many bars and see some other attractions in Poznan. At noon, you'll see a lot of tourists and locals looking at the town hall. They've just been searching for cheap goats. Around noon, these goats emerge from the tiny gates above the clock, butturing their horned heads 12 times. You can also see the process that makes the metal goats do this inside the town hall, which is free to visit on Sundays.
2. Town Hall
The crowning glory of Old Market Square was a late Renaissance wonder from 1550 to 1560. There is a beautiful loggia on the eastern facade, with three levels and paintings in the spandrels and friezes under and above the arches. Higher up you can see portraits of the Kings of the Jagiellonian Circle, positioned on either side of the gilded cartridge with the initials "SAR," for Stanisław August Poniatowski, the last King of Poland. At the hour's stroke from 7:00 a.m. At 9:00 p.m. The carillon is playing the traditional bugle call.
3. Ostrów Tumski (Island of the Cathedral)
It is no exaggeration to say that Poland was raised on this island between the forks of the Warta River. The island today is a quiet village with cobblestone streets and squares lined with trees and historic church buildings. It is a welcome respite from the Market Square Tourist Trail. One of the first things you'll note is the profusion of greenery, from the high medieval banks of the river to the many fruit trees that are lovely when they blossom in the spring.
4. The Croissants of St. Martin
The Martian croissant (Rogal świętomarciński) is made of half-puff pastry and white poppy seeds. Nowadays, it is one of the most popular pastry in Poland, one of the products with a protected designation of origin in the EU, and for this reason, it can only be baked in Greater Poland according to exact recipes. The origin of the Martin squirrel goes back to the 19th century-together with the consecration of the parish church of St. Martin on 11 November. One of the Poznan confectioners baked three whole trays after the local priest called the poor for gifts and took them to the church. The others followed him. In this way, a tradition has been developed that is still maintained today.
5. Train "Maltanka."
On the northern shore of Malta Lake, the 3.8 km route of the children's favorite small-gauge train "Maltanka" carries its passengers all the way to the New Zoo. The train travels from the end of April to the end of September on a daily basis. Over several days, the train was operated by the Borsig antique steam engine (an affectionately named "Agusia") from 1925. In order the locomotive in pull the first train at 10.00 a.m., it will arrive at 02:30 a.m.
6. Poznań Historical Museum
After 1956, the interior of the Town Hall has become a museum and deserves a separate entrance. The highlight of the show is the Grand Vestibule, which appears pretty much as it did in the middle of the 16th century. Rich stucco paintings of heraldic animals and coats of arms can be seen in the coffered ceiling. Throughout the galleries, look for a mantel clock with a city coat of arms from 1575, and a drinking cup representing a shoemaker's guild from 1651. There is also a stunning crusier (the bishop's staff) made in Limoges in the 18th century, with enamel and gold plating.
7. Cathedral of Poznań
Given significant damage to the Battle of Poznań, the oldest cathedral in Poland has late Gothic architecture based on medieval plans. It doesn't take anything away from the charm of the star vaults in the nave and the groin vaults in the chancel. Treasures are still preserved, such as the Flemish tapestries from the 1600s, the choir stalls from the 1500s, and the late Gothic altarpiece with the sculpted panels of Mary and the Passion from 1512. Maybe worth remembering are the many Gothic and Renaissance tomb monuments of the 14th and 15th centuries, some of which were plundered by the German army but restored after the war.
8. St. Stanislaus Church
From the south-east corner of Swiętosławska Market Square, your eyes will be drawn to the majestic facade of this Baroque cathedral. The Church of St Stanislaus, a former Jesuit institution, is one of Poland 's finest baroque religious buildings. Niches, scrolls and pilasters offer a glimpse of what awaits through the portal: the triple nave, 55 meters long and 27 meters high, is awe-inspiring and radiates energy with its 16 Corinthian marble-shaped columns. It's all paradise for art history lovers with 18th-century frescoes.
9. Cytadela Park
North of the old town on the rise is Fort Winiary, one of the 18 defensive systems that protected the city during the Prussian era. Looking at the diagram, you can clearly see the outline of the Ravelins to the north of the park. You can also see extensive earthworks, even though pieces of ravelins and bastions are hints as to what was here before. Ravelin IV has a now-disposed amphitheater, and a series of military cemeteries with graves from both World Wars are located in the southwest corner of the park.
10. The New Zoo of Poznań
The fun day for youngsters continues at the New Zoo, the second largest zoo in the world. The attraction is possibly the most common in 120 hectares, with its aviaries inhabited by a rich variety of owls and engaging in breeding programs for golden eagles. Some of the zoo's crowd-pleasers are African elephants, giraffes, zebras and Siberian tigers, but you will also find European bison, native to eastern Poland.
