Courtyard of The Ballet School

Address: entrance: Gołębia Street

Description

The Ballet School Courtyard is situated in a historic building in the heart of the Old City. In the mid 16th century this was the site of the former Jesuit College, a major intellectual and cultural centre in Poland. The building was later replaced with a new one which now accommodates the Olga Sławska-Lipczyńska Ballet School and the Polish Dance Theatre. Together with the Parish Church and the arcaded courtyard this is one of the most impressive complexes in the architecture of Poznańs Old City and a major example of Polish baroque.
