It feels like back in time a bit. Old buildings and the walking path - (I would recommend flat shoes), but plenty of modern restaurants gardens. Just sit there, have some food and watch people going by. It could be busy most of the time, but I loved it!

some of the best restaurants are in the market square (stary rynek). If its to go out somewhere during the day or a night out, rynek is the place to be.

One of the nicest "Old Market Squares" in Poland, with Town Hall in Renaissance style, colorful tenement houses and many pubs, cafes and restaurants, where you can also dine al fresco from Spring to Autumn. One of the tourist attraction are the well known "goats of Poznań" - 2 metal sculptures which butt 12 times on the tower of the... More

amazing place in an amazing country, Poland's highlights are way under valued by global and European tourists.

A superb Rynek, a little enclosed which makes it feel even more quaint. Probably up there with Krakow and Wroclaw for me in terms of decor and authenticity. Be aware as always that drinks and food are a few zwolty more on the town square than a few streets across.

I went to get a croissont (one of these traditional once) and a coffe while watching the goats come out and "fight". I was not impressed by the goats, but the town square is lovely and very charming for a stroll.

The old market square has lots of charm and some excellent places to drink, forget the goat clock go have your picture taken with two dressed up goats in a shop nearby instead.

This is such a fun, little town square! Great restaurants and pubs surrounding the square. It's quite a scene for colours and urban photography. It's best to go out during the day or evening (lighting is great!) as there are families and visitors of all ages. After 23h00 it turns into a university town and is not so lovely. Drunk... More

I highly recommend the Old Market Square for a visit, whilst you are in Poznan. Not only the most attractive buildings that you are likely to see in any town, well-maintained and historically in keeping with one another. You will also find at least one brewhouse hotel and the tourist office. There are also a myriad of shops, cafés and... More
