Gniezno Travel Guide: 31 reviews and 82 photos

We came to Gniezno on Easter Sunday as a day trip from Poznan by local train. It turned out to be a very pleasant trip with blue sky but with almost everything closed.

Gniezno is said to be the birthplace of Poland. Funny enough it's a German doing. Kaiser Otto III. made a pilgrimage to the grave of holy Adalbert who's remains were retrieved by Boleslaw I. for gold. Adalbert was beheaded on a missionary trip. Anyway, in the cathedral Otto ennobled his vassal and therefore Poland was born.

Pros and Cons

    Thanks for the photo of Holy Trinity. It helped me identify my own photo. This was my ancestors' church.

    A shame so much was closed but you seem to have had a lovely trip anyway and have some pretty photos to remember it by. I like the shot across the lake especially :-)
