Dziekanowice - Ostrow Lednicki

Witness of Poland’s oldest times

Excavations have shown that Ostrow Lednicki was one of the major settlements of the first Piasts in the late 10th and early 11th centuries. A stronghold surrounded by earthen walls was built here along with a stone palace and a church. On the island you can see the remains of the palace and church. The foundations and lower parts of the walls are still in place.

You have to take a ferry to get onto the island from the little skansen near Dziekanowice.

Various folkloric events are organized on the premises of the Wielkopolski Open-Air Ethnographic Park that is located on the eastern bank of the lake.
