The best way to travel to the conference venue


The most important historical sights



The first Polish cathedral, built in the tenth century. Inside, the tombstones from between the 15th and 16th century, the main Gothic altar from 1512 and 19th century Golden Chapel containing the sarcophagi and statues of first Polish rulers Mieszko I and Bolesław Chrobry are noteworthy. In the cellars, relics of the first cathedral, tombs of the first rulers and a Baptistery can be seen. A state-of-the-art Cathedral Island Interactive History Centre (ICHOT) is being built at the moment

Town Hall

The pearl of the Renaissance from the 16th century, envisioned by the Italian architect Giovanni Baptista Quadro. Inside the Town Hall there is the Great Hall with a richly decorated, originally preserved Renaissance vault. Every day at high noon two tin billy goats appear in the tower, butting their heads together 12 times. The Town Hall now houses the Poznań History Museum.

Craftsmen houses

Next to the Town Hall there are colourful houses with characteristic arcades which used to be where craftsmen and tradesmen sold fish, candles and salt. Old craftsmen trade signs from the 16th century can still be found on some of the houses


St. Stanislaw’s Parish Church

One of the most monumental Baroque churches in Poland. Inside there is the famous pipe organ – the work of the famous 19th century organ builder Frederic Ladegast. The pipe organ has over 2,600 pipes. Underneath the entire temple there is a stretch of cellars where, owing to their specific microclimate, wines were stored in the 20th century.


Kaiser’s Castle

The last and youngest monarchical residence in Europe. Built for German Emperor William II. After WWI when Poland regained its independence, the Castle housed the faculty of mathematics of Poznań University, whose graduates broke the German Enigma code in the 1930’s. Now the castle serves as a cultural centre (exhibitions, cinema, theatre, concerts).,_Pozna%C5%84#/media/File:Zamek_cesarski_w_Poznaniu_01.JPG


Former Hugger Brewery, now Shopping, Culture and Business Centre ‘Old Brewery’

Built basing on a 19th century brewery – multiple award-winning trade, art and business centre. Unusual architecture enters into a dialogue with the site’s industrial past, a multitude of nooks and crannies hide mementos from the beer brewing times: ceramic seals, interior design elements, plaques
