The Warta River, which cuts across Poznań, provided its residents with many opportunities. They have tapped its potential and sought to tame its wild nature. By the late 19th century, Poznań’s economy had come to depend heavily on the river. A number of projects were directly associated with the Warta, all of which constituted successive stepping stones towards creating a modern city. The residents’ strategy was to choose tools that would help them achieve their goals as soon as possible.
