Cathedral of SS. Peter and Paul (patron saints of the city) located on the Cathedral Island in Poznań, Poland. It was the seat of the first bishop of Poland since 968 and the burial place of three kings and several rulers of Poland and the region from the Piast dynasty. The present gothic building dates to the 14-15th centuries, but underwent several important changes in various times; the most extensive of them took place after the 2nd World War, when the structure was re-gothicised, however with the baroque helmets. The bridge on the Cybina river bears the name of the first bishop Jordan.
