Archbishop's Palace - the seat of Poznaρ's bishops.

The oldest written reference to the Poznaρ seat of bishops comes from 1404, although the bishop's court probably existed from the beginning of the cathedral's functioning.

The palace - repeatedly destroyed during wars or floods - changed over the centuries its architectural shape, among others thanks to Jan Baptist Quadro (XVI century) and Pompeo Ferrari (XVIII century) After a thorough reconstruction, made in 1852-54, the entrance to building leads through a balcony portico with Ionic columns. Under the portico are two marble sculptures depicting Saints Peter and Paul, which until 1945 stood in the main altar of the cathedral.

Poznan is a city on the Warta River in west-central Poland, in the Greater Poland region. It is best known for its renaissance Old Town and Ostrσw Tumski Cathedral. Today, Poznaρ is an important cultural and business centre and one of Poland's most populous regions with many regional customs such as Saint John's Fair (Jarmark Swietojanski), traditional Saint Martin's croissants and a local dialect.
