About the Royal-Imperial Route

City Centre

The 19th-century City Centre was an arena of a Polish-German cultural competition, in which different visions for the city’s development clashed. The fruit of the initiatives launched at that time is the historic architecture, which can still be admired today.

Old Town

For almost 800 years the Old Town has been home to many generations of Poznań’s inhabitants. Different eras left their mark on the city and enriched it. The unique personality of the place can be sill seen in the Old Town.

Cathedral Island

In the past many influential and prominent Church figures and lay people were connected to the Cathedral Island. In this oldest, historic part of Poznań you will take a closer look at the results of their activity.

Porta Posnania

Porta Posnania is the first center for heritage interpretation in Poland. Porta Posnania tells the story of the beginnings of the Polish state and the city of Poznań.
