Lonely Planet review

A large park laid out on what was once a massive Prussian fortress. It was involved in one major battle, when the Germans defended themselves for four weeks in 1945; as a result it was destroyed apart from a few fragments.

Today Citadel Park incorporates two museums: thePoznań Citadel Museum and the Poznań Army Museum . There are also cemeteries for Polish, Soviet, British and Commonwealth soldiers, all on the southern slopes of the hill.
