While Poznań is not often the first city on travelling itineraries, it will prove a pleasant surprise to any who end up here. Crowded with churches, cobblestones and colourful burgher houses, Poznań's Old Town is a collage of architectural styles stuffed with soaring historical monuments, esoteric museums, art galleries and theatres, and more than its fair share of restaurants, bars and cafes. A major cultural and economic centre, Poznań has earned an international reputation as a city of trade fairs, its success stemming partly from its convenient location as a mid-way point on the road from Paris to Moscow. [If you plan to arrive during a trade fair, we can't over-emphasise the importance of securing a sound place to sleep in advance.]
In Poznań it's not all about business, however. Over 130,000 people, some 20% of the population, purport to study here at some institute or another, lending a defiantly young and vibrant atmosphere to the streets. Whether you’re here for business or leisure, by exploring our webpages you’ll find everything you need to the enjoy this city, whether it be bars, clubs, restaurants, museums or shopping.
