      Kaunas naar Poznań

      March 6 in Poland ⋅ ⛅ 1 °C

      Zondag ontbijten we in het Very bad Hotel. Dit is wat anders dan gebruikelijk, het is meer een huiselijke sfeer. De eigenaar is er ook en we maken een praatje. We besluiten te vragen of hij ons item wil ruilen. We hebben een luxe hoofdlamp. Uiteindelijk wil de eigenaar van het hotel de hoofdlamp wel ruilen voor 2 t-shirts van Very bad hotel. Dit vinden we leuk en besluiten de shirts ook te houden en niet meer verder te ruilen.
      We vervolgen de weg richting Poznań, waar we dankzij een uur tijdverschil om 20:00 aankomen. We eten wat en dan snel naar bed.

      Posen - ein echter Geheimtipp!

      May 21, 2021 in Poland ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

      Bevor es gleich weiter nach Breslau geht, stärken wir uns mit leckerer Gulaschsuppe. Wir sitzen gerade im Park Cytadela, einem wunderschönen Stadtpark mit angrenzendem Militärmuseum, und lassen uns die Sonne auf den Pelz scheinen. Wir sind vollkommen überrascht von Posen. Dass die Stadt so viel zu bieten hat, hätten wir nicht gedacht! Wir finden, Posen ist ein echter Geheimtipp und eignet sich hervorragend für einen 2-tägigen Besuch. Aber nun ab nach Breslau - bis später!Read more

      Back in Poznań! We've been here before, but we like this city so much that we had to stop here again. A car-free old centre, delicious food, impressive churches ... We spent Miel's birthday by playing an intensive VR game (sweaty business!), cuddling sweet kittens in a cat cafe (yes, we admit it, we're cat freaks😸) and having dinner in our favourite Italian restaurant.Read more

      In Posen spielt sich alles am Altstädtischen Ring ab - ein riesen Marktplatz mit einer Kirche im Zentrum und wunderschönen, individuell gestalteten Häuser drumherum. So haben wir quasi den gesamten Tag und Abend mit Essen, Trinken und Flanieren verbracht. Die Bilder sprechen für sich!Read more

      Poznan

      September 4, 2021 in Poland ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

      Poznan is the 5th largest city in Poland and the site of the oldest diocese in Poland. Poznan was a fortified city between 2 rivers.
      In the 10th century, the local ruler was baptized which was followed by the start of the 1st cathedral in Poland. And the city outgrew its walls
      What's known now as the old city was built as a new walled city to accommodate the growing population.
      Poznan was heavily damaged during world war 2. So most of the pictures show reconstructions. The 1st picture looks at a portion of the market square, said to be one of the largest in Poland. The 2nd is of a statute of goats. It is said that a couple of goats escaped and ran up into the top of the city hall where they started butting each other on a balcony. It was enjoyed so much it became part of the city. There's even a glockenspiel that remembers this that I didn't get to see.
      The 3rd picture is in the nave of the cathedral and what is claimed to be the most beautiful baroque church in Poland. The 4th picture is the very recent reconstruction of the castle.
      The 5th picture is of typical narrow medieval houses built this way as taxes were a function of the width of the house. Most had shops on the ground floor and accomodations above.
      The last picture is of Freedom Square. In 1918 when Poland was reestablished as its own country after 123 years of partition, Poznan was left as part of Prussia. Paderewski gave a speech here that prompted an uprising that resulted in this region joining Poland.

      Posen (Posnan)

      August 31, 2019 in Poland ⋅ ☀️ 32 °C

      Auf der S 11 ging es praktisch direkt nach Süden in Richtung Posen. Die Straßen waren zwar „nur“ zweispurig, aber gut ausgebaut.
      Unterwegs stand wie immer ein Mittagessen auf dem Programm. Kurz nach 14.30 Uhr erreichten wir bei 32 Grad nach einem kleinen Umweg und ca. 280 km den Campingplatz „Malta“, der schön an einem See mit Regattastrecke, Hallenbad und weiteren Sportstätten gelegen ist.
      Schnell bauten wir den Wohnwagen auf und machten uns auf den Weg in die Stadt. Auf Radwegen erreichten wir das Stadtzentrum, das uns sehr an Danzig erinnerte. Nach einem Cappuccino erkundeten wir die Stadt weiter und genossen in der Fußgängerzone noch ein Bier, bevor es wieder in Richtung Campingplatz ging.

      Poznan Cathedral

      September 17, 2019 in Poland ⋅ ⛅ 57 °F

      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Poznań_Cathedral

      The Archcathedral Basilica of St. Peter and St. Paul in Poznań is one of the oldest churches in Poland and the oldest Polish cathedral, dating from the 10th century. It stands on the island of Ostrów Tumski north-east of the city centre.

      History
      The cathedral was originally built in the second half of the 10th century within the fortified settlement (gród) of Poznań, which stood on what is now called Ostrów Tumski ("Cathedral Island"). This was one of the main political centres in the early Polish state, and included a ducal palace (excavated by archaeologists since 1999, beneath the Church of the Virgin Mary which stands in front of the cathedral). The palace included a chapel, perhaps built for Dobrawa, Christian wife of Poland's first historical ruler, Mieszko I. Mieszko himself was baptised in 966, possibly at Poznań – this is regarded as a key event in the Christianization of Poland and consolidation of the state. The cathedral was built around this time; it was raised to the status of a cathedral in 968 when the first missionary bishop, Bishop Jordan, came to Poland.

      Saint Peter became the patron of the church because, as the first cathedral in the country, it had the right to have the same patron as St. Peter's Basilica in the Vatican. The pre-Romanesque church which was built at that time was about 48 meters in length. Remains of this building are still visible in the basements of today's basilica. The first church survived for about seventy years, until the period of the pagan reaction and the raid of the Bohemian duke Bretislav I (1034–1038). The cathedral was rebuilt in the Romanesque style, remains of which are visible in the southern tower.

      In the 14th and 15th centuries, the church was rebuilt in the Gothic style. At that time, a crown of chapels was added. A fire in 1622 did such serious damage that the cathedral needed a complete renovation, which was carried out in the Baroque style. Another major fire broke out in 1772 and the church was rebuilt in the Neo-Classical style. In 1821, Pope Pius VII raised the cathedral to the status of a Metropolitan Archcathedral and added the second patron - Saint Paul. The last of the great fires occurred on 15 February 1945, during the liberation of the city from the Germans. The damage was serious enough that the conservators decided to return to the Gothic style, using as a base medieval relics revealed by the fire. The cathedral was reopened on 29 June 1956. In 1962, Pope John XXIII gave the church the title of minor basilica.

      Tschüss Deutschland

      November 18, 2019 in Poland ⋅ ⛅ 11 °C

      Nun ist es also real - wir fahren wirklich los. So richtig können wir es noch nicht fassen, wie lange wir nun weg sein werden und dass wir alle Freund*innen und die Familie so lange nicht sehen werden.
      Der erste von vielen Zügen ist bestiegen und wir beginnen die Reise so wie jede gute Zugreise beginnt - mit Essen. Für die erste Zugfahrt haben wir uns noch richtig ins Zeug gelegt um uns vegan und einigermaßen gesund zu versorgen (Nudelsalat, Falafeln, Brötchen und Porridge kommen auf den Tisch).
      Außerdem immer für den Notfall dabei: Tütengerichte. In jedem Zug gibt es einen Samowar (großer Wasserboiler mit heißen Wasser) womit wir unser Porridge und unseren Kartoffelbrei aus der Tüte zubereiten können. Außerdem dabei eine Menge an Tee und Instantkaffee für den Morgen. Auf dem Foto seht ihr eine kleine Auswahl womit wir uns eingedeckt haben. Zur Grundversorgung zählen etliche Riegel und Süßigkeiten, Tofuwürstchen und Obst und natürlich Nüsse, Nüsse und noch mehr Nüsse. Wir haben uns glücklicherweise vorher beim Unverpacktladen unserers Vertrauens ordentlich eingedeckt.
      Auf unserem Weg liegen außerdem einige vegane Supermärkte/Läden, bspw. Das Vegaterinenburg in Jekaterinenburg, wo wir uns wieder mit vielen veganen Produkten versorgen können.
      Happy Cow (eine weltweite vegane Restaurantführerapp) sei dank werden wir uns auf unserer ganzen Reise nicht wirklich Sorgen um unsere Versorgung machen müssen, am meisten freue ich mich auf das traditionelle mongolische Essen in einem veganen Restaurant in Ulan Bator und das vegane usbekische Restaurant in Novosibirsk.

      Wir sind übrigens nach 22h gut in Moskau angekommen - morgen gibt es dann einen Erfahrungsbericht zur ersten Nacht im Zug. Jetzt müssen wir erstmal einiges an Schlaf nachholen.

      Poznañ parish church

      The history of the Jesuit church dates back to the 16th century. In 1570, bishop Adam Konarski, encouraged by the Bishop of Warmia Stanisław Hozjusz (later a cardinal), brought Jesuits to Poznań and urged the city to give them a small church of St. Stanisław Bishop, founded by bishop Jan Lubrański for retired priests, two hospitals and a municipal school; he himself furnished the religious house with four villages. This confirmation was confirmed by King Henry of Valois in 1574, and a year later he was entered in the chapter files by rector of the college Jakub Wujek - translator of the first printed Bible in Poland. Over time, the church turned out to be too small for the needs of the order, it also required frequent repairs, hence the Jesuits decided to build a new, larger temple. In 1651 the cornerstone was laid. Initially, the work was led by Thomas Poncino de Goricia from Lugano - he was released when he cracked the part of the walls erected. After a 22-year break, caused by, among others "Swedish Deluge", in 1678 the work was undertaken by the newly appointed rector of the College Bartłomiej Nataniel Wąsowski, an architectural theorist. He used the existing foundations, used a light wooden vault over the 27-meter high nave. From the north, it closed the church, typical of Jesuit architecture, with a five-axis Il Gesu facade. wooden vault above the 27-meter high nave.

      Church of Our Lady in Summo

      This late Gothic rectorial church was most probably built where the stronghold's chapel, erected around 965 by Mieszko I's wife, Dobrawa, used to stand. It was constructed between 1431-47. In the early 19th century the church was in such terrible condition that the Prussian authorities ordered it demolished. That fate was only avoided thanks to the efforts of Archbishop Leon Przyłuski, which lead to restoration of the church in the years 1859-62.
      The west gable, crowned with a small bell, is ornamented with pointed blank windows and small ornaments with floral motifs in stone. The side elevations are partitioned with decorative cover profiles, between which there are high pointed windows (walled up on the northern side). At the base of the structure one can see a rock with characteristic grooves. As the story goes, they were created by knights sharpening their swords on the rock, which was supposed to give them supernatural power. The high roof is covered with ridge tiles (monk and nun). The church is entered from the south through a pointed portal made of profiled, glazed bricks. A similar portal, only walled up, can be found in the north elevation. The three - nave bay has a Gothic stellar vaulting over the naves and over the chancel and the ambulatory a sail vaulting on supporting arches from 1727. The polychromy inside the church, the design of the stained glass windows and the altar were made by Wacław Taranczewski between 1954-56.
