Geographic Location

Puszczykowo is situated 15 km to the South of the city of Poznań, the capital of the Wielkopolska Province, on the left bank of the Warta river. It occupies an area of 16.6 square km, 46 % of which is covered by forest.
The location close to the A2 international road (Berlin-Warsaw- Moscow) and on the Poznan- Wrocław rail route makes Puszczykowo attractive for visitors and provides connection to the European transport network.


The location of Puszczykowo in the area of the Poznan metropolitan area, at the Warta river, surrounded with forests of the Wielkopolski National Park, makes the town interesting for its inhabitants as well as visitors. Puszczykowo was already famous in the early 1920s. It was known among the citizens of Poznan as a very attractive place in which one could spend summer holidays, and eventually as a perfect place to build a residence and settle down.
Puszczykowo arose from four independent settlements: Old Puszczykowo, Puszczykowo, Puszczykówko, and Niwka. The oldest historical mentions of that location go back to 1380, but the first available map dates from 1882. Still, Puszczykowo received municipal rights as late as 1962!

The name Puszczykowo probably derives from Poszczuk, the first owner of the land. Nevertheless, people tend to believe that it is connected with the Polish name of "tawny owl" a bird living in the neighboring forests. The image of a tawny owl together with those of pine trees, the sun and a river have become the four elements of the town crest and seem to adequately describe the character of the town.
