Location and history

Środa Wielkopolska is – as its name implies – in Wielkopolska County, 35 km southeast of Poznań.

The exact time of the founding of the city is unknown, but it is believed to have occurred between 1253 and 1281. Środa was surrounded by a defensive wall through which 3 city gates led. The fortification of the city is mentioned for the first time in the documents in the early 1400s, but is of course much older. (The city wall was demolished after 1797). In 1793, Środa was taken by the Prussian army in connection with the division of Poland, and the city was then under Prussian rule until 1918.
