Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Lovely building with the same pink and white colours as St. Stanislaus church next door. Now used by the municipality. You can enter the courtyard, admire the view and laze around on the benches in the shade. There is a tourist information office too.

Jesuits College in Poznan it is a fine Baroque complex built in years 1701-33 on the plan of horse shoe use to be one of the biggest, prestigious and most important academies in Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, and by many considered protoplast of A. Mickiewicz University. Actually, for short period of time; since the reign of Zygmunt III Waza till Jan III Sobieski rule (approximately 1611-1678) by virtue of royal privileges (issued and confirmed by kings Zygmunt III Waza, Jan Kazimierz and Jan III Sobieski) Jesuits College functioned as first Poznan's university, but its existence was torpedoed by Jagiellonian University in Kraków. Nevertheless in times of its existence Jesuits College in Poznan was also one of the most modern academies in Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth where students were taught physics, astronomy, mathematics, geometry, antic languages, law and modern languages among the other subjects. Architecturally Jesuits College belongs to Baroque style. Its pink façade is divided by white pillars and cornices that creates so called "Great Order". The oldest part of the complex are southern and western wings. Eastern wing and northern one with the tower were added in 1737. Originally, College's inner yard was surrounded with cloisters and connected with nearby Maria Magdalene and St. Stanislaus Church, but in 19th century most of the cloisters was bricked up. After second partition of Poland, College was divided into two middle schools and seat of occupying power of Prussia. In first half of the 19th century, for brief period of time Jesuits Collage served as a seat of viceroy of Grand Duchy of Poznan and was visited by many influential personages as Napoleon Bonaparte, Tsar Alexander I, Arthur Wellesley Duke of Wellington or Fryderyk Chopin. Nowadays, buildings of former Jesuits College housing Poznan's City Hall and other offices. Impressive building. I don't know how they were able to do it, but most of the historical buildings compared to modern one is simply beautiful. Guess, people of the past had better taste.

Located on Plac Kolegiacki is the magnificent Former Jesuit College .
This group of buildings was constructed in the first decades of the 1700's ,each building looks amazing ,it's perfect ,the pink and white colour scheme so pleasing on the eye ,it's garden area's so lovely to walk around and it's got some interesting facts attached to it none more so in the fact that Napoleon stayed here in 1806,a plaque attached to the facade of the building gives information about this event ,it's a truly photogenic Jesuit College complex and well worth checking out if you're near Plac Kolegiacki .

The pink and white buildings are now municipal building but used to be part of a Jesuit college. In the 1700s they tried to get permission to become a university, and got the Polish king's permission. At the time there was only one university in Poland and that was in Krakow, The university in Krakow didn't want the competition and got the Pope to nix the deal. It took another 300 years to get a university in Poznan.

All over Poznan there is stunning architecture. This is one of them. Beautiful building and definitely a photo op. There is also a beautiful church nearby but not sure if it is actually part of the College. Given the proximity it definitely could be. A very short walk from the Old Town Square. Also a nice quiet place to sit and take a rest.

This is another well restored old building in the centre of Poznan which might be worth a stop as you explore the area. It was too late in the day to go inside when I was there, but still looks good from the outside.

The beautifully coloured former Jesuits college, founded in 1570 as a place from friars to teach young people and now houses the city council. A lovely place to visit

This Baroque complex is one of the biggest and best-preserved of the kind in Poland. Its jewel and culmination, as well as, integral part - the Parish Church, is one of the most beautiful Baroque churches ever built. Though collegiate buildings are nowadays occupied by the city council and authorities, along with adjacent park, they never cease to amaze when you walk by.
