Gniezno is recognized as Poland's first capital. You will probably visit "The Museum of the Origins of the Polish State" (Muuzeum Poczatkow Panstwa Polskiego). There should be souvenirs on the start of Poland. Also Gniezno has a shrine in the Cathedral of St Adalbert (Wojchiech). Souvenirs on this topic are also unique.

Reliquary of St. Wojciech

by yumyum

The reliquary of St. Wojciech is placed in the centre of the chancel of the cathedral. I was very impressed by the silver casket with its saint dressed in a bishop’s gown on top. Piotr van der Rennen of Gdansk made this reliquary in 1662. The figures around the casket were made by the famous Poznan sculptor Wladyslaw Marcinkowski.

In 1986 the reliquary was stolen and damaged. It was consequently restored and placed into the cathedral again.

Welcome to Gniezno

by yumyum

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.
