Park Citadel denotes the hill just north of the city centre where Winiary fortress stood until 1945.
In 1962 work was started aiming to create in Cytadela a Park - cum - Monument of Brotherhood in Arms and Friendship between the USSR- Old Russia and other nations with Poland. In 1992 this lengthy name was changed and since then it has been simply Citadel Park. Today the park, together with the cemetery, has an area of around 100 ha so it is really huge.

This large park was once the site of a German citadel (hence its name) during the 18th century partition of Poland. You can still see the citadel's walls. It also contains a Polish military cemetery. June 1956 matters to Poznan and you will find its victims honoured here. Most striking is the weird but wonderful headless bronze statues installation in the centre of the Park - it's worth going for that alone!

We spent a lovely day here wondering around. The park is very clean with lots of seating places. We had lunch at the cafe near the children’s play area and sat outside in their deckchairs. Great big park, very interesting and well worth a visit.

My Wife and I explored this park and found unlike Warsaw or Krakow this park is dark and wooded it has a very solemn feel to it, we stumbled on some old tanks and then went and visited the Russian and British cemetery. The Russian part is very unkept and looks derelict yet the British part was kept with fresh flowers and manicured lawns and even had an attendance book to sign.

When we visited at The end of February the park was very quiet with only a handful of people out jogging or walking their dogs.

The very interesting military museum in the centre costs about £2 to get in and also gives you access to an area above where you can take a close look at various military aircraft and vehicles.

There's a public loo 1.5Pz and a cafe.

If you need a place to walk, run, ride a bike... this is the place to be, also a lot of grass and benches to sit and rest. Worth seeing freely accessible art by Magdalena Abakanowicz - "The Unrecognised Ones" and a military museum with some old cold war airplanes and military vehicles plus a bonus - access to three or four tanks in front of the museum.

We went here to while away a few hours until we could check into our apartment. The Commonwealth War Cemetery is very moving especially as it in close proximity to the graves of Polish and Russian servicemen. The whole area is nicely kept. The cafe is excellent with good food, very pleasant staff.and prettily decorated. There are two museums there. The history of the area is fascinating.

Now it is a huge park, with two military museums, various monuments & sculptures, remnants of the original 19th century fortifications (Fort Winiary, later known as Poznan’s Citadel) and several cemeteries, where Polish, Soviet, German and British Commonwealth soldiers are buried. One of the cemeteries contains graves of the 1863 January Uprising insurgents, including that of my great-great-great grandfather. During my last visit I saw plenty of tourists from all over the world, exploring the park.

The park and the Citadel are very special places for me because for a number of decades I lived nearby and spent my childhood years there. I have certainly visited the Citadel hundreds of times since the early 1960s. In the 1960s it was a very different place, full of crumbling fortifications, rubble and scattered bricks. From time to time the military set explosives to demolish the existing fortifications, gradually clearing the debris and transforming the whole place into a park. At that time it was still possible to find interesting artifacts, like military medals, old utensils and antique pharmaceutical bottles: apparently in the 19th century garbage had been deposited at that site.

Also in the 1960s I met several local residents who regaled me with very interesting, yet quite chilling stories pertaining to the Citadel—they had witnessed the last public execution in Poland that took place there! SS-Obergruppenführer Arthur Greiser, a Nazi politician and Reichsstatthalter & Gauleiter (Reich Governor and Party Head) of the German-occupied territory of Wartheland, after being arrested in 1945, was tried, convicted and eventually publicly executed by hanging on July 21, 1946 at the slopes of the Citadel, before a large crowd.

The Citadel Park is an ideal place to go for a stroll, relax, enjoy nature or contemplate the not-so old history of Poland.
