“Historical & Recreation place.”
Review of Park Cytadela

Park Cytadela
Ranked #3 of 189 things to do in Poznan
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 21 September 2017

Once upon a time it was one of the largest artillery fort in Europe, now it's a place of rest and recreation with with a perceptible stigma of the past. You'll find there huge park with playgrounds, you can stroll, jog or ride on bike or roller if you like. You'll find there nice restaurant Umberto (italian & polish cuisine) as well. Nice place for families and active people. Everyone can find there something interesting. You can also visit museumus fe. museum of weapons. Cytadela is a place where monumental fortifications, museums, monuments and cemeteries remininds of the turbulent past. Paradoxically, these place is full of life and atmosphere here conductive to relaxation. It's a place worth to visit in Poznań.

The park is beautiful with massive lawns and gardens, and a multitude of things to see such as monuments, sculptures and museums. However it is really badly signposted for those who do not speak Polish. There are several large signs indicating what is in the park but no indication as to where or how to get to them. I found a few I did not even know where there by sheer accident. I spent longer here than planned because it is such a nice peaceful place. The headless statues and the museum with the tanks outside are well worth searching out, as is the soviet reslist style statue of a soldier. Highly recommended

Park is fantastic on its own, spacious and green with nice hills and meadows. What you can't miss though is the museum - even if you're not fan of army at all - you need to go there. You simply don't get an opportunity to touch a tank or a jet fighter every day, it's truly an amazing place.

I plan on going back when this is open, but it looks really awesome from what you could see through the fence. There are 4 tanks outside that can be viewed even with the site it closed.

Sight of fort winary , which was largely destroyed in the battle of Poznan in 1945, between the retreating Germans and the Red Army . Wonderful museum of tanks and other artillery, from the last 75 years. You can go and have a look at the few remaining bits of the fort, riddled with machine gun bullets. Now a large and wonderful park. Have a look at the original cemetery as you climb the steps to the monument itself . Containing the dead heroes of the 1918/19 battle for independence, also interesting world war 2 graves , including a section from the British Royal Airforce and other allied graves . A memorial but a great place , must not be missed
