Old Town Hall

Reviewed By niels-j - Aarhus, Denmark

If you are in Kalisz, a walk around the old town is not to be missed; Kalisz has a lot of charm and atmosphere. The city also looks quite worn down in places. Some buildings in the center appear empty or abandoned and need immediate care to prevent them from turning into ruins. I was visiting in February - and my guess is that during the summer Kalisz with its wide squares, extensive parks and many trees probably looks much brighter. Beside the parks and some interesting remains of the medieval city wall behind the Jozefa church, Kalisz has a few other attractions. There's a museum and you can join a free tour of the city hall including a climb on narrow stairs to the top of the tower.
The tour of the city hall is guided and starts on a given hour at the entrance just inside the building. On each floor there is a special exhibition showing important eras of the history of Kalisz. From the top of the tower you have a great view of the city.

Dworek Marii Dabrowskiej

Reviewed By 5oku - Greater Poland Province, Poland

Dworek odwiedziliśmy wracając z wyjazdu do Kalisza i zgodnie stwierdzamy: miejsce jest wyjątkowo urokliwe i inspirujące dla każdego poszukującego weny twórczej. Dookoła dworku piękne i całkiem spore tereny do spacerowania, przed samym budynkiem natomiast śliczny dziedziniec i ławeczki, na których można przysiąść i odsapnąć. :-)
Samo wejście do dworku jest płatne, ale na pewno nie obciąży niczyjej kieszeni. Warto, ponieważ wewnątrz jest całe multum ciekawostek do przeczytania i obejrzenia. Są choćby kadry z planu "Nocy i dni" (film pełnometrażowy nakręcono w roku 1975 a trzy lata później postanowiono również zrobić serial), a w samej książce znajdziemy dokładny opis dworku oraz pobliskich okolic.
Bardzo miłe panie pomogą każdemu w zwiedzaniu obiektu w odpowiedniej kolejności jeśli chodzi o pomieszczenia - warto zapytać o rozpiskę o tym, co można gdzie zobaczyć, zdecydowanie ułatwiło nam to orientację. :-)
Wewnątrz budynku czuje się specyficzny zapach towarzyszący tak wiekowym budowlom. Dla bywalców skansenów nie będzie to zapewne nic nowego, ale dla każdego kto nie miał okazji - warto przystanąć na moment, by uzmysłowić sobie, że jesteśmy w miejscu, gdzie dawno temu było miejsce, które opisane zostało w jednej z największych powieści polskich.
Nam bardzo się podobało!

Goluchow Castle

Reviewed By EnzoPu - Italy

This Castle is located on the road from Poznan to Kalisz. The castle is surrounded by a very nice park. This attraction is certainly worth a visit, though access is possible only with a guide. Unfortunately our guide spoke only Polish, so she was not very helpful for us. If you decide to go, consider that the road is jammed with traffic, in particular with trucks.

Aqua Park Kalisz

Reviewed By Ronald1382 - Utrecht Province, The Netherlands

When travelling I spent half a day here. It is a nice place to be during hot days. Good for both Children and families.
There is space to relax and to be active. Although it was busy, you still can find a spot to lay down.
The food is decent and average priced. There are lockers available for clothes/valuables.

Stone Bridge

Reviewed By Claus_Krogsgaard - Vordingborg, Denmark

I went on it every day for three weeks without knowing that its No. 3 as most remarkable place in Kalisz - (Unfortunately, it's the wrong bridge tripadvisor has marked up).
The bridge is today an important part of the city's infrastructure, it is cobbled with some beautiful stone tablets middle of the bridge ... But it is not exactly a UNESCO World Heritage candidate.

This beautiful theatre it seems to me that is the most beautiful theatre I've ever seen. Just cross the bridge, right next to the theatre, is wonderful park, perfect for walk and place from where you can look at the theatre from different perspective.

Piast City Archeological Preserve

Reviewed By Claus_Krogsgaard - Vordingborg, Denmark

An fascinating place to visit, like getting a glimpse back to the Middle Ages.
There is probably more exciting to be in the summer when there are people around, but intressant enough to look around alone.
It draws much down that all signs are in Polish (I think) - you do not get a card or something that can explain what you look at, I got a nice walk of the place but not much knowledge

City park

Reviewed By 5oku - Greater Poland Province, Poland

Tytuł jest cytatem ale jakże trafnym, nie sposób się nie zgodzić. Kolejna wspólna wyprawa i na Park z obiadem w okolicy ( Bacówka) przeznaczyliśmy całe popołudnie. Jak najbardziej warto gdyż teren spory , bardzo miły dla oka. Jest gdzie przysiąść, odprężyć się, podziwiać bogactwo flory. Nie brak też oczek wodnych i posągowych atrakcji. Miejsce na spacer idealne. Trochę czasu spędziliśmy na mostku obserwując zjazdy tyrolką z sąsiedniego Parku Linowego. Na Prośnie też się działo, mnogość łódek i kajaków. W końcu dotarliśmy do Teatru i podobno najładniejszej ulicy Kalisza ale to już temat na kolejne recenzje :)
