Some of the most famous places to visit and see are the Opera House, the Ostrow Tumski (Tumski Island), the former Imperial Castle, and the Raczynski Library. There are several lakes near Poznań as well -- the Kiekrz Lake is famous for sailing, the Malta Lake for rowing, and the Strzeszyn Lake and the Rusalka Lake for bathing. With so many lakes, it is not surprising that many tourists visit the city to enjoy the great water facilities and their favorite water sports.
