Central Place in old Poznan

Plenty of good restaurants and bars. My favorites were Ratusova and Whisky in a jar. Old buildings and sometimes entertainment

Well, there are a lot of nice places to see in Europe, but Stary Rynek in Poznan is one of the market squares you just have to see. Before I came here, Poznan in my opinion was just an industrial town, but now I know that it is a beautiful town indeed.

there are bars and restaurants all around the square and the prices all seemed very cheap. The clock tower is there where at 12 noon each day the nodding goats come out and butt heads

Wonderful colourful live place with lots to see. Amazing houses with lot of history. Enjoyed every moment of it. I'd recommend it as a must-see in Poznan.

Stopped for drinks at a side-walk cafe and then had tappas at one of the restaurants. Atmosphere was great, as was the beer, and the tappas was as good as it gets. I don't go to Poznan often but will always try and return to this market square.

Nice aspect of the old town with restaurants/cafes in the square. Also some better than normal tourist shops. See the goats and then go get a bite to eat.

Large historic square with lots of fab bars and restaurants. Advise to go in summer and sit outside with a coffee or a beer and people watch.

... you will marvel at the colours, check out the people, check out the goats, you will sit down and have a beer outside and you won't do anything else in Poznan ;)

I am of Polish discent and I have traveled Poland extensively and I am embarassed of this place. The place is filthy, the people are not friendly, graffiti is everywhere and it seems the locals do not like tourists. I recommend that the mayor of Poznan re-think his or her policies. I know Poznan is a business center, but if... More

The square is very well done. It is a perfect place to go during a sunny day or at night. You can find local and touristic restaurants, cafes, souvenir shops, pubs and bars as well as night clubs. Every day at midday there is a couple of old goats coming up really slowllyy from the edge of the clock tower.... More
