Poznań Town Hall or Ratusz is a building in the city of Poznań in western Poland, located in the Old Market Square (Stary Rynek) in the centre of the Old Town neighbourhood.The town hall was originally constructed as the administrative building of the city founded on the left bank of the Warta in 1253 (see History of Poznań). It was completed around 1300, during the reign of Wacław II Czeski, and was first documented in Latin in 1310 as Domus Consulum.[1] It was a one-storey Gothic building built upon a raised quadrangle. The cellars remain from this period of construction. The building was extended in the 15th century, and at the turn of the century a tower was built at the north-western corner. The interior was remodeled between 1504 and 1508. It served as the city's administrative building until 1939, and now houses a museum. The town hall was originally built in the late 13th century following the founding of the medieval city in 1253; it was rebuilt in roughly its present-day form, in mannerist style, with an ornate loggia, by Giovanni Battista di Quadro in 1550–1560. The display of mechanical fighting goats, played out daily at noon above the clock on the front wall of the building, is one of the city's main tourist attractions.

In 1536 the city suffered a major fire, which did serious damage to the town hall. Repair work was carried out in 1540–1542, particularly to the tower, but it remained unsafe. In 1550 the city' council commissioned Giovanni Battista di Quadro to carry out a major rebuilding. The work lasted until 1560. Di Quadro added an upper storey, extended the building towards the west, and added attic walls and a three-storey loggia.[2] A new clock (installed 1551) was made with three full faces and one half-face, and with goats added as a "comic element" (see next section).

In 1675 the tower, clock and goats were destroyed by lightning. The tower was rebuilt in 1690 to a height of 90 metres (300 ft). The top of the tower was destroyed in a hurricane of 1725. In 1781–1784 major renovation was carried out on the building thanks to the efforts of the city's "Committee of Good Order", and it obtained the basic form which it presents today. A Classical-style tower roof was designed by Bonawentura Solari, and on the top was a white eagle with a two-metre wing span. On the eastern elevation Franciszek Cielecki painted Jagiellonian kings, and under the central turret was placed a cartouche with the king's initials "SAR" (Stanislaus Augustus Rex).

The next major renovation was carried out in 1910–1913 (during the period of German rule), when black rustication was used to give the building a more "northern German" style.[3] The original late renaissance polychromy was destroyed.[3] An additional storey was added[4] and the goats, which had been absent since 1675, were restored to the tower in 1913. In October 1943 the Town Hall was the scene of Heinrich Himmler's Posen speeches. Following major damage in the Battle of Poznań (1945), the Town Hall was again rebuilt in 1945–1954, when the Renaissance character of the elevations was restored (and extracts from the constitution of the Polish People's Republic were added to the text displayed on the attic wall). The eagle, which had been kept hidden during the war, was returned to the tower in 1947. The mechanism that drives the goats was replaced in 1954, and again at the end of the century. Renovation carried out in 1992–2002 largely restored the building to its post-1784 appearance.

The goats and bugle call

Today the mechanical goats' butting display is performed daily at noon, preceded by the striking of the clock and the playing of a traditional bugle call (hejnał). At other hours between 7 am and 9 pm the same call is played on a carillon, installed in the tower in 2003. The daily appearance of the goats is one of Poznań's best-known tourist attractions.

A legend behind the original addition of the goats to the clock mechanism states that a cook, while preparing a banquet for the voivode and other dignitaries, had burnt a roast deer, and attempted to replace it by stealing two goats from a nearby meadow. The goats escaped and ran up the town hall tower, where they attracted the attention of the townspeople when they began to butt each other (according to some versions, this drew attention to a fire which might otherwise have done significant damage). Because of the entertainment provided, the voivode pardoned both the cook and the goats, and ordered that two mechanical goats be incorporated into the new clock being made for the building.

Another legend is associated with the hejnał. This says that Bolko, son of the tower's trumpeter, once took care of a crow whose wing had been shot through. The boy was then awoken at night by a gnome wearing a crown and purple cape, who thanked the boy for his kindness and handed him a small gold trumpet, telling him to blow it when in danger. After these words the gnome transformed into a crow and flew away. Years later, after Bolko had taken his father's place as trumpeter, when an attacking army was scaling Poznań's walls, Bolko remembered the present, ran to the top of the tower and began to play the trumpet. Dark clouds began to gather on the horizon, which turned out to be an enormous flock of crows that fell upon the attacking army and forced it to retreat. The trumpet was lost when Bolko dropped it in his astonishment, but the call which he played is still performed.

 The City Scale (Waga miejska) can be found behind the Old Town Hall. It was the building where all goods to be sold on the market had to be weighted. two-story building in the Old Market Square in Poznan, with a very high, pitched roof. Originally the building was the seat in which the official for a small fee carried out the mass measurement of the goods. In the postwar years it housed the Registry Office in Poznań and to this day provides a wedding here.

In 2009, the weight of the operator and the tenant of the city was a public relations agency People Meet People, who transformed the building in the center of culture (exhibitions, concerts, performances, discussions, conferences, restaurant).

Another element, which laid for the creation of today's institutions were Seweryn Mielżyński donations for PTPN - Poznanskie Towarzystwo Przyjacioł Nauk. In 1870 he bought a collection of Edward Rastawiecki and in 1871 gave it to museum. Moreover he bought landfor the future mUSEUM, opened for the public in 1882.

Zamek Cesarski w Poznaniu (german language. Königliches Residenzschloß)

The Imperial Castle in Poznań, popularly called Zamek (Polish: Zamek Cesarski w Poznaniu, German: Königliches Residenzschloss Posen), is a palace in Poznań, Poland. It was constructed in 1910 by Franz Schwechten for William II, German Emperor, with significant input from William himself. Since its completion, the building has housed government offices of Germany (to 1918 and during the Second World War) and Poland (1918–1939, 1945–present).

–Construction began in 1905 (the first field work took place back in 1904) Five years later, the architect presented the keys of the emperor. (on ​​21 August 1910 during his visit in Poznan) At those times, the high cost of construction amounted to 5 million marks. It is the newest castle in Europe. In 1939, immediately after the commencement of hostilities, it was decided to rebuild the former imperial residence of Adolf Hitler's headquarters. As a result of this decision, in which he had taken part Albert Speer, completely changed the interior layout and their functions. All the main rooms are decorated in a totalitarian style of architecture of the Third Reich. In place of the former chapel was Hitler's personal office. As rumor says, the electrically heated balcony, from which the Führer had taken parade (the last survey, conducted during the renovation, did not confirm the existence of such an installation.) However, there is no evidence that Hitler ever was in Poznan. The castle has seen only photographs. Cabinet was decorated just like its counterpart in the Reich Chancellery in Berlin (his design was unchanged to this day, and often serves as a decoration film)


                

Teatr Wielki im.

Pierwsze przedstawienie – "Czarodziejski flet" W. A. Mozarta – odbyło się w 1910. W 1919 przeszedł w ręce polskie. W okresie międzywojennym miały tu miejsce światowa prapremiera "Legendy Bałtyku" Feliksa Nowowiejskiego, "Margiera" Konstantego Gorskiego i polska premiera "Harnasi" – baletu Karola Szymanowskiego. Podczas walk w 1945 budynek uniknął większych zniszczeń, pomimo że stanowił niemiecki punkt oporu. W 1949 patronem poznańskiej opery został Stanisław Moniuszko.

Malta Ski – centrum rekreacyjne znajdujące się w Poznaniu na południowym brzegu Jeziora Maltańskiego. Jego historia sięga lat 80. XX wieku, gdy rozpoczęto zagospodarowywać tereny otaczające Jezioro. Powstała wówczas koncepcja usypania sztucznego stoku narciarskiego. Usypano go na zboczu Kopca Wolności. Początkowo można było z niego korzystać tylko w okresie zimy. W 1992 roku powstał pomysł by stworzyć w tym miejscu pierwsze w byłym bloku wschodnim całoroczne centrum narciarstwa. Pomysł zrealizowano i pokryty sztuczną nawierzchnią stok otwarto 21 lutego 1993. Z czasem dodawano kolejne atrakcje takie jak letni tor saneczkowy, pole do minigolfa i pole do nauki gry w golfa a także darmowe letnie kino.
