Śluza Katedralna

The cache has been hidden in the building of the western abutment of Śluza Katedralna (Dom Schleuse/Cathedral Lock), a wonderful relic of the old Fortress Poznan. Lock was one of the big three weirs, divided Cybina river and allowed flooding of the area between Berdychowo, Zagórze and Warta river. The lock was dismantled after the great flood of 1924, when it was proved how great the risk of flooding makes. Today has been preserved only western abutment, which until 2011 served as the magazine of the Archdiocese and was not available to the public, and the foundations of the eastern bridgehead. The foundations were demolished during the construction of the Brama Poznania - Interaktywne Centrum Historii Ostrowa Tumskiego (ICHOT, Gate of Poznań - Interactive History Centre of Cathedral Island). West outpost was opened to the public, and thanks to the mucus built footbridge linking the new building it is possible to transition from Gate of Poznań on Cathedral Island (Ostrów Tumski). Today Lock is a part of Brama Poznania

When we came close, we realized that this is a triple listing. Reason enough to visit it. Nice place also, and even a box that can hold a few trackables.
Thanks to the owner!
