Description

The film shows a compilation of street scenes, beginning with a banner: Long Live the Polish Republic, hanging on a building above a large crowd that have gathered for a parade and a fly-past by military aircraft. Polish flags and decorations hang from buildings and street furniture, with crowds gathered on the street.

The next part of the film shows a visit to "Muzeum Wojska Polskiego", a compilation of city street scenes; children playing on toy tricycles; statues and monuments next to a river; a boat trip down the river; visiting the main shopping district; visit to "Muzeum Plateatu" along with several churches and communal gardens before the group board one of the cities trams.

Part two of the film shows a train journey with views from the window as the train passes through the Polish countryside and "Poznan Garbary" station. The film closes with views aboard a ferry on the Vistula River and close-ups of a pile of tourist literature on a table.
