We spent 4 nights in this pub - and we're Irish. So that should tell you all you need to know :) They also did steaks, which were sooooo tasty :)

One of the nicest, largest and most colorful market squares I have seen in Poland. This square is perfect for people watching, satisfying one's hunger by sampling culinary delights and if the light is right you might be able to capture some striking photographs. A must see in Poznan!

Glossing over the troubled history, the square (Stary Rynek) is treasure chest -albeit heavily restored - of Polish Rennaissance and Prussian Enlightenment architecture with the Ratusz (Town Hall) its Italian Rennaissace jewel. At midday large crowds gather see the little goats (kozy) peep out of their little door and - eventually - start bashing their heads together - as my... More

The location was very nice. Everything to do indoors (it rained all day) was close to this beautiful place. The colors, smells and atmosphere were incredible. Poznan is a beautiful small city and well worth a 1 or 2 day visit.

As the title sats, this is possibly the prettiest old market square you will come across. It has been restored with great charm and elegance and is simply a beautiful place to be. The restaraunts on the square are plentiful (loved The Brovaria, Room 4 Rent, and for sheer quirkiness, The Post Office Cafe), and in the surrounding streets there... More

I know I am a bit biased - Poznan was the first square I had seen in Poland, as it was my future wife's academic city. I really love the old houses on its perimeter and the old town hall with goats having fun each day at noon and adjacent small houses.. Sitting there in a cafe is a very... More
