Lovely day and night out

The market square doesn't sleep. Fantastic during the day and wonderful at night. Make sure you stop at a restaurant and soak in the atmosphere of the place enjoying great food.

Some of Poznan's history is depicted in the displays of this museum. Well worth a look and is relatively cheap. Don't forget the goats butting heads at twelve noon.

After show at 12 there was only one question - why the goats don't touch each other? ;) many people who saw the show for the first time put this question in the air. It was pretty funny. Poznan Old Market atmosphere at noon was specific -so many things was happen there - soap bubbles, uhlans, dancers, mimes, orchestra...

Stop and take a picture walking through the square, 5 minutes max. Also, make sure you visit at 12 noon to see the goats come out of the tower and butt heads.

This Town Hall is a beautiful 500 year old Italian designed building situated at the centre of Poznan's main square. Each day at 12 noon two mechanical billy goats emerge from the clock tower and butt heads much to the amusement of the crowds of tourists.

Museum of Poznan city is based inside the building. If you want to know more about history of the city then this is the best place. Outside the building looks great.

The Town Hall boasts a clock movement activated at noon. In addition to chimes a pair of goats appear through some wooden doors and proceed to butt heads. Thousands arrive at noon in the main old square to watch!
