“Might get better?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

In October 2013 there was a lot of building work going on so was not the serene atmosphere I would have expected. You also had to watch out for cars zooming across the cobbled courtyards! Also it probably didn't help that we arrived on a Monday and all museums etc. were closed so all we could do was wander in the cold.

“Lucidity and beauty through ages”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

We had a very pleasant evening on the Tumski island. Charming and cosy, great for romantic walk, it's really taking you to the another age. When the twilight comes, the lamplighter is walking all over the place and lights the lanterns. Definetly a place to see..

“It has potential”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

I read about this place being the birth place of Poland and host to the oldest cathedral in Poland. From an architectural point of view, the cathedral is average (the cathedral near the old town square is far more impressive). The island itself has potential but there is very little to do here. It would be very tranquil but for the noise of traffic from near by. It needs a good museum or something else here. Not worth a visit.

“Very Nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

I really thought this was a great little attraction but I was extremely disappointed after I paid for what I thought was to go into the towers that I instead was pointed to go to the Crypt... This is in a perfect location for tourists to view the whole city if they would just allow it! Poznan is a great upcoming tourist area and if they want more people to come, allowing them into the tower is gonna have to happen!

“Peaceful place away from the world.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013 via mobile

Cathedral island is a quiet contemplative place to wander and relax away from thesis square and busy streets. Certainly worth a visit to see the churches and relax.
