This is the most important historical building in Poznan, a must see, though a little outside, on the island. Major Gothic building in brick.

This is a very beautiful church with many gilded items inside. The stained glass windows are very pretty too.

I have visited the cathedral twice and on both occasions found myself in awe of the architecture and grandeur of the internal decoration and details of the sculptures and stone work. Well worth a visit if you are in Poznan

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 baptised.And probably buried.

It was too full to enjoy during the Easter celebrations, but we went back again to get a proper look and it was well worth it. I like to see churches, but not for too long, but this one seemed to stand out as different....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 beautiful and ornated. Unfortnately, I couldn't visit it for...More
