Renaissance in Poznan
Highlights of Poznan’s Renaissance
Poznan Croissant Museum is situated inside a historic tenement building in the Old Market Square, one of the houses that survived the wars intact. The building dates back to the city’s golden age – Renaissance. Inside you can marvel at the original coffered ceilings, wall paintings, chambers and intriguing finds (for instance, a tiny crakow ? style of shoe with extremely long toes). If you look out of the window, you will enjoy a wonderful view of the icon of Polish Renaissance – Poznan Town Hall and colourful merchant row houses.
Focus on the goats
From the Museum windows, there is a splendid view of the Town Hall Tower and its famous fighting goats. No matter what the weather, you can comfortably enjoy the goats show, use binoculars or take a picture. You will also learn the legend explaining the origins of this original mechanism.
