BY BIKE THROUGH POZNAN
The present game will lead you to places which are definitely worth seeing, even if they are less frequented by tourists due to their distance from the city centre. While playing the game, you will see many different neighbourhoods of the city of Poznań, full of charming nooks and crannies and steeped in rich, fascinating history.
POZNAN BEYOND TIME
You are about to begin a critically important mission, the results of which may determine the fate of the world itself! Four scientists from the Albert Einstein Space-time Research Institute in Poznań have discovered a way to gain entry into a space „beyond time”. By way of an experiment, they have embarked upon their first journey, choosing Poznań as its destination. Sadly, on this very first journey beyond time something has happened – something nobody could have foreseen. During the research journey, someone has stolen Emperor Otto the Third’s imperial crown before the symbolic crowning of King Bolesław Chrobry.
POZNAN THE FIRST DEGREE
Ostrów Tumski in Poznań – its name literally meaning “Cathedral Island” – has, for over a thousand years, remained a site of important developments for our country.

THE FIRST SPARKS

THE TIME OF PATRIOTS
After years of enslavement, filled with enthusiasm, ready for anything, they have waited for the right time to come. THE TIME OF PATRIOTS. The above words refer to the Poles – a nation which for over 120 years has dreamt of regaining its independence, lost utterly in 1795 as a result of the Three Partitions of Poland, performed by the neighbouring powers – Prussia, Austria and Russia. After many failed attempts, the end of World War I brought about an opportunity to regain freedom at last. The German defeat during the war resulted in an opportunity to reunite the region of Wielkopolska (Greater Poland) with the reborn Polish state. All that was missing was a spark – an impulse that would set things in motion. And then this impulse finally came – in the form of the arrival in Poznań of the world-famous Polish pianist and a candidate for the position of the Polish prime minister, Ignacy Paderewski. In an audacious move, Paderewski decided to come to Poznań in the company of army officers from countries which have won the war, despite the fact that the German authorities have forbidden him to do so.
ENCHANTED IN STONE
Over hundreds of years the inhabitants of cities wanting to develop areas of their lives tried to give it a unique character, to express their thoughts or even make the environment more aesthetic. This game is dedicated to this aspect of the city of Poznań. The popularity and class of monuments gathered around the Old Market made us look for less well-known space, and as it turned out just as much interesting...
