Very nice area for walking and relaxing. Not so many tourist. You can visit a cathedral here. It's quiet and calm area. If you're tired of the market square and want to see something else, go there and you will not regret.

Not much to see inside, but beautiful area to just walk about. We took a free walking tour first and then went back to see it again on our own.

I have almost forgot about this area. Actually this place I mention the most with great feelings. Here there are not so many people and you can feel the history of Poznan, of Poland. In the Cathedral you can find the remains of first kings and rulers of Poland. You can also go down to the crypt and watch a... More

It is quite peaceful and well worth the time for a visit.

The Cathedral is impressive, located on the island, but very easy to access. Public transport widely available. Not a must see, but if you have spare time, why not. Only 15 minutes walk from Old Town Square.

It was a cold evening and you could feel a bit of a Christmas spirit in the air. Tumski Island is a small thing but it's got a character and it's definitely worth exploring if you're in Poznań. Took some pretty nice photos there.

Great place to do some sightseeing, to relax and to commune with nature. The Cathedral, two great mueums and Brama Poznania- things you have to see being here.

This is a very beautiful place to walk around. The past has been well preserved here. It is close to the old city and has lots of preserved historical sites.
