It is worth paying your particular attention to:

    • The baroque tomb of St. Adalbert with a silver reliquary
    • The 12th century Gniezno Doors with the scenes from the life of St. Adalbert are a masterful and unique work of Romanesque art.
    • The cathedral vaults with ancient remains of our predecessor's buildings.

We suggest visiting the area around Trzemeszno - the Piast Route:

Biskupin - an archaeological reserve situated in the Biskupińskie Lake peninsula. Based on large fragments of the original settlement, there was reconstructed a part of fortified town with its ramparts, a gate and streets. The wooden country huts with their interiors and primitive household tools illustrate how our forefathers used to live;

Kruszwica - a tower with a beautiful view of the Gopło Lake panorama. A boat trip over Lake Gopło, which is one of the largest lakes in the Wilekopolska and Kujawy regions, may give you a lot of fun. In the developed peninsula there are numerous rowing and sailing harbours;

Wenecja - the ruins of the 14th century castle and the Museum of the Narrow Gauge Train. There one can admire a dozen or so steam locomotives of various kinds, as well as carriages with railwayman's gear and uniform exhibitions. The main attraction is a ride on a narrow gauge train, which connects Biskupin, Wenecja and Żnin;

Żnin - the most interesting monuments include the 15th century St. Florian's Church, The Museum of the Pałuki District located in the former magistracy building and a gothic town hall tower located in the market square of Żnin;

Ostrów Lednicki - the relics of Poland's oldest pre-Romanesque complex of palace and sacred architecture;
