Edward Island

Situated on Raczyński Lake in Zaniemyśl, around 40 km from Poznań, Edward Island was first documented in 1331. It used to be linked to the mainland by a wooden bridge, but it was only accessible by ferry. For some years now, the lake may be crossed using a pontoon bridge. The island preserves much of its appearance from its proprietor, Count Edward Raczyński. The island's allure resides in its splendid deciduous forest, adorned with nearly 300 ancient trees. Between 1817 and 1819, Count Raczyński, a well-known figure in Greater Poland, built a Swiss-style larch house on the island, which today houses a restaurant.
