From among numerous tourist qualities of the region, undoubtedly the leading ones are historical-religious values connected with the beginnings of the polish state-hood, the baptism of Poland, the place of burial of St. Adalbert and the coronations of the polish kings. Across Gniezno Poviat there runs the Piast Route which is one of the most interesting tourist routes in Poland. It is marked with a symbol of stylized eagle on red background. The most often frequented places on the route are: The Wielkopolski Ethnographic Park near Dziekanowice, Ostrów Lednicki, the Cathedral and the Museum of the Beginning of the Polish State in Gniezno.

One of the most important historical monuments of the region is the Gniezno Cathedral - the place of St. Adalert's burial and coronations of Polish kings. Its interiors abound in countless pieces of art, including one of the most famous relics of Romanesque art - the 12th century Gniezno Doors as well as the 17th century silver sarcophagus with the relics of St. Adalbert.

Gniezno's basic trump card is the abundance of historic monuments of sacred character and historic monuments of sacred character and historic monuments being the seats of church dignitaries. They include: in the direct vicinity of the cathedral - the archbishop palace erected in 1830-36 and the bishop's palace of the 19th century, St. George Church, originally Romanesque, converted at the end of 18th century. From the north it is surrounded by historic canonries. The largest canonry - Potocki's collegiate of 1736-38 houses the collection of the Gniezno Archdiocese Museum which is one of the leading museums as to the abundance of church collections in Poland.

In the direct neighborhood of the Old Square there are two more sacred monuments. One is a gothic one-nave parish-church (1420-30) with a gothic tower crowned with baroque helmet. The church is surrounded with a wall that used to be a fragment of medieval fortifications. The other is the early gothic-baroque Franciscan church and monastery (of the end of 13th century) which was created as the result of connecting two temples: of the Franciscan monks and the nuns of the order of St. Clare, with15th century tower. In the main altar there is a painting depicting Madonna with the baby, called "the Lady of Gniezno". Local people treat it with particular reverence. The Franciscan church also houses the relics of the blessed Jolenta who died in 1279.

One-nave St. John Church of 14th century also deserves particular attention. It has a gothic cross vault and after the cathedral it is most precious historic monument of Gniezno. Te greatest attraction of the church is the interior - historic wall painting of the second half of the 14th century.


The 15th century gothic, three-nave St. Michael church with a cross vault is another historical monument. St. Laurence church of 16th century and the post-evangelical church of 1838-42 are also worth recommending to the visitors of Gniezno.

It is necessary to pay attention to two buildings on the main communication axis of the Piast Route: the wooden baroque church in Łubowo from about 1660 which is the evidence of the existence of folk culture in the area and the basilica in Trzemeszno, the history of which reaches as far as back as 12th century. It is a three-nave building linking elements of Romanesque, gothic and baroque architecture.


Apart from sacred monuments connected with the beginnings of the Polish statehood and the creation and strengthening of Christianity in Poland, undoubted attraction underlying the historic and cultural character of the region are numerous museums and heritage parks as well as objects of archeological character.

Apart from the already mentioned Archdiocese Museum, the Museum of the Beginnings of the Polish State in Gniezno deserves special attention. Besides traditional collections it takes advantage of audio-visual techniques, presenting the history from the proto-Slavonic times till the region of Kasimir the Great. Best known in the region is the museum heritage park-archeological center in Lednogóra which consist of:

  • Wielkopolski Ethnographic Park in Dziekanowice created in 1975; it occupies the area of about twenty hectares and is one of the largest heritage parks in Europe in the park there are various types of village buildings, mostly wooden, from the area of historic Wielkopolska. Every year in the area of the park two folk events are organized: in march" the drowning of Marzanna" and in June "Live Heritage Park". The atmosphere accompanying the events is the reflection of folk culture, which is still alive in the area.
  • The Museum of the First Piast in Lednica and the so-called Little Heritage Park includes several historic buildings from the area of Wielkopolska as well as a few new, stylized ones. There is an archeological exhibition in the area of the park. The Museum of the First Piast is an institution supervising all parts of the Lednogóra complex.
  • Ostrów Lednicki - island on the Lednica Lake and on it - archeological heritage park, the remains of an early medieval stronghold, ruins of the prince's palace of the 10th century, former seat of the Piast princes.
From among the monuments of the Gniezno Land also the palace in Czerniejewo is well known. Its central part consists of the palace with two short wings. In front of the palace there is the courtyard and the forecourt yard at the sides of which are the coach house and the stable. The lot is kept in the architectural style of classicism. In the palace itself one finds a hotel, restaurant, bar and café. The center is busy with various tourist activities- horse rides, coach rides, and hunting.

The Gniezno Land is rich not only in historical monuments but it also possesses high natural and landscape qualities with a whole range of elements of natural environment. The Poviat landscape abounds in numerous lakes and glacial hills. The largest lake in the city is Winiary Lake of the area of 18,9 ha used for leisure and recreation, with a bathing beach and park. The largest lake of the poviat is Niedzięgiel of the area of 63,8 ha and depth 22 meters.

At lake Powidz - the largest in Wielkopolska - leisure-recreation resort is situated. 6000 guests can stay there at the same time. Popielewskie Lake is one of the largest lakes. It has length 9 kilometers and the area of 308 ha, at the same time being the deepest lake of Wielkopolska Lowland (47 m). Within the city limits there are still two more lakes: Jelonek lake situated close to the houses of the town center in the vicinity of Lech's Hill and świętokrzyskie Lake. The area around Jelonek Lake has been developed and is destined for the organization of everyday leisure, recreation, church events and sport and culture events. świętokrzyskie Lake is the mainstay of water birds and because of this it has been turned into a passive leisure area. It possesses a protection zone without any buildings and a walking promenade. The city has many parks and the south border of the city is adjacent to the City forest being the "green lungs" of the City.
