The town hall has an old-fashioned museum with quite reasonable content relating to the town - and most signs are translated into English. A nice way to spend an hour-and-half if you happen to be there. The most interesting thing for me were a number of books from 17th century and the posters and pictures from WWII.

It is situated in the middle of the Old Market. Definitely must go and see it at noon any day! Go there and check on your own what I'm talking about :p

Watching the Ratusz Poznanski's goats butt heads when the clock strikes on the hour is only one of the highlights of the experience. The other is watching the people visiting the square too. Along this side of the square are the artists along one wall. The square is getting more compact due to the numerous restaurants having outdoor cafes, which... More

The town hall is not the biggest one in Poland but it's beautifully refurbished and feature Poland's well-known ramming somersaults that ram every day at 12:00PM. It has been build on the verge of 14th century. The legend says that after the fire in the town it has been decided to restore the town hall and install a new beautiful... More

The Ratusz (former city hall) was a Renaissance builting designed by the Italian architect Quadro. Toward the end of WW2 it was nearly levelled by Allied bombing and Soviet artillery. What one sees today is a not very scrupulous reconstruction. But, still, it gives a decent flavour of what the building must once have been like. Inside, there is the... More

Beautifully set out showing medieval artifacts on the ground floor and as you work your way up the building, you also work your way through the centuries right up to the war. Some very disturbing photos of the devastation suffered by Poznan during the war. The document issued by the German authorities showing the name changes to the the streets... More
