Discover the most beautiful sights of Poznan on an informative, 6-hour city tour. Poznań is a city on the Warta River in western Poland. It’s known for universities as well as its old town, with Renaissance-style buildings in Old Market Square. Poznań Town Hall houses the Historical Museum of Poznań, with exhibits on the city. The town hall's clock features mechanical goats that butt heads at noon. The Gothic and baroque St. Peter and St. Paul Cathedral is built on an island called Ostrów Tumski.
It is probably fair to state that the city of Poznan has a fairly complicated history! It was until the end of the First World War part of Prussia, Germany; then as a result of the Treaty of Versailles in 1918, the city became Polish and was renamed Poznan; then again becoming part of Germany once again when Germany invaded Poland in 1939; and finally with the redrawing of the borders of Germany and Poland at the end of the Second World War it became part of Poland once more.
