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.

In addition to the beautiful cathedral and museums, this place also offers a quiet moment. The low houses and walkways make it look like a country village in the last century.

We stopped at the souvenirs shop before exploring Ostrow Tumski. We hoped for a map to follow the ten designated sites to see on the Island. There was none. So unless you have a map of your own, identifying where each landmark is, and what...More

If you visit the Tumski Island to see either the church or any of the museums, be sure to get the location-based audio guide from the Brama Poznania museum - or actually from the Lock Building. even when you walk the streets or inside the...More

This church was the most important for me to visit during my time in Poznan. I can´t understand how they could build something like that 1000 years ago, just amazing. The church is very nice inside, and different to other large churces i´ve visited. The...More
