Three interesting facts about Znin:

- The name Znin is spelt Żnin in Polish, which drives from the word ‘żnieja’, meaning harvest.
- Znin was renamed Dietfurt after the German invasion in 1939 and became a part of the Wartheland.
- Znin has a simply splendid narrow gauge railway and there is an equally interesting railway museum in nearby Wenecja.
