  • Walked round the cathedral which was originally first one built in Poland. A visit to the crypt is a must as it shows potentially the baptismal font where reputably Mieszko 1 the first ruler of was ba...  more »

  • The Tusmki Island would not be so beautiful without the Cathedral, maybe the most important in Poland and one of the most beautiful. The two towers are like a city landmark and the interior looks so b...  more »

  • Architecturally and historically very interesting, and with a magnificent organ to boot. Unfortunately, the place is not well-lit, and it is often hard to see the content of the Nave and the chapels around the Ambulatory. Most egregious is the 5zł charge to switch on the lights in the Golden Chapel behind the Chancel (although my ire is somewhat tempered by the fact that I know this goes towards upkeep).
  • Beautiful church. It's worth visiting and taking your time strolling through the amazing arches.
  • Amazing atmosphere and architecture. Recommended for families; the church is big so toddlers don't get bored during Mass.
  • Very nice example of Polish Gothic architecture.
  • Definitely the most beautiful temple in Poznań! I recommend the visit.

Where to stay in Poznan

Poznan draws huge business crowds during its international trade fairs, which cause a drastic increase in hotel prices. Business travelers cram the centrally located hotels during the week, so weekends remain the best time for sightseeing visits on a limited budget. Unless you have to stay in the city center, consider one of the outlying neighborhoods' hostels, which come in all shapes and sizes. Cozy guesthouses offer another affordable option, providing simply furnished rooms with free Wi-Fi, cable TV, and private parking.
