Our tour starts on the island of Ostrow Tumski, the most important royal residence during the days when Poland was still a pagan country. This is where you will find Poland’s very first cathedral: St Peter and Paul’s (as Pope John Paul II used to say: “this is where Poland started”).
From there we will take you to the charming Old Town of Poznan, where you will see the hallmark of the city, the “Poznańskie Koziołki”: two charming billy-goats that butt heads every day at noon. While in the Old Town you will have time to admire the Old Town Square with its Renaissance Town Hall. From there you will stroll through the narrow streets of this historical area until you reach St. Stanislav’s Church (also known as “fara”), a precious pearl of the Polish Baroque, brimming with gilded ornaments and mouldings.
