Wielkopolska / Greater Poland


  Grzybowo 10a      (+48) 507 51 37 98     more than a year ago
Grzybowo, 36 km north of Poznań, is believed to be one of the most important strongholds the early Piast state, despite having not been mentioned officially in any historic records. Discovered by German explorer Wilhelm Schwartz in the late 19th century, it wasn't properly excavated by Polish archaeologists until the 1990s. The Archaeological Reserve is part of the Museum of First Piasts, based at the site in Ostrów Lednicki. With a museum pavilion now established on the site, the ramparts and the interior of the fort have been stylized as a historic entrance gate as it may have looked in the past. The archaeological reserve includes a permanent exhibition, a teaching hall for school, as well as a library and archaeologists' studios. Perhaps most importantly is the active calendar of historically reenacted events, that make learning about medieval Poland even more fun!
