Introducing Poznan

The atmosphere of this city is created by the people - mainly students who come here to study and grow to love this town. There is always something going on at the old market square in the center and in the numerous clubs&pubs around it. Keep in mind that people tend to start to gather around for a night out about 10pm but the whole area will be almost empty during some major holidays when students leave for their hometowns.

A very photogenic place. Major historical events took place mainly in XIX and XXth century, lots of places have been renovated so you can't always tell how old they are but you can feel it. Both the dialect as well as cuisine are quite different from that of Warsaw or Krakow, which people from Poznań love to point out.

Home to one of the best universities in the country is also known for it's International Fair and Malta lake.

Good gataway excursions ideas include Gniezno (the first historic capital of Poland), Lednogóra (heritage park and a open air folk museum), Kórnik (medieval castle) and Rogalin (XVIIIth century baroque palace)

Poznań was the host for the Climate Change Conference in December 2008 and this year it will welcome the Taizé Comunity for a meeting.

Beneath picture-book façades in crayon-box colors, youngsters chatter and old-timers set the world to rights, as the whirr of bicycle wheels blends with the click-clack of horses’ hooves. Pull up a seat in a...
Nice place to stay. Good location - between bus station and city center. The hostel is fairly small with a good common area so it was really easy to meet people. Each bunk had a huge locker underneath and beds were comfortable. Staff were really friendly and always available They offer (like all...
