The "Nineteenth-century Poznań"audioguide will take you through those monuments and elements of the city which were created under the Prussian partition, i.e. between the 19th Century and the outbreak of World War I. During this period, the Germans, wishing to impose their national character on the city, undertook a number of projects to make Poznań a German-friendly place. Facilities established by them included libraries, museums, and theatres; the early 20th Century saw the erection of the monumental Castle District.
