Being the home of The Poznan International Fair - the largest and the oldest exhibition in Poland, it is also one of the most „green cities” in Europe - the green areas cover more than 26% of all Poznan. The biggest tourist attractions are the historic buildings and churches of the Old Town and the Cathedral Island (where the symbolic tomb of the first Polish ruler Mieszko I and the first king of Poland Boleslaw the Brave can be seen) as well as the botanical garden, Palm House and the Zoo (117ha).

The most interesting places in Poznań:
Emperor's Castle (Zamek) - The Poznań residence of the German Kaiser William II was designed by Franz Schwechten and erected in the years 1905-1910. It was the last imperial edifice built in Europe, modelled on mediaeval castles and meant to be the symbol of German domination of Wielkopolska. Emperor William II visited Poznań three times only. When Poland regained independence after WWI, the castle was given to the Poznań University and it was used by presidents of the Second Republic during their visits to Poznań. Today the castle houses the "Zamek" Culture Centre, the Animation Theatre and the Museum of the Poznań June 1956. The castle courtyards are used for cultural events during the summer.
Poznań Collegiate Church (Parish Church) - Church of St. Stanislaus the Bishop and the Martyr (Fara) - the one of the most impressive Baroque sacral edifices in Poland.
