This is where everyone can have something to be occupied with, be it shopping, cafe hopping, dining or simply taking a stroll and appreciate the many fine architecture rebuilt after the war yet has the full european feel. Highly recommended.

This is a really pretty square that has a medieval feel about it, even if the majority of it is less than 70 years old. It's also photogenic at night when many of the hotels, restaurants and bars are lit up. Pretty as it is, once you've walked around it a couple of times, it's not really worth another visit.

Got to see the first days of the Christmas market. Pork on a stick and hot wine for all! Lighting of the Christmas Tree on St. Nick's Day was an unexpectedly great way to kick off Christmas.

Bustling with lots of bars restaurants and cafés... Quite small but lots going on at night. Sadly lacks the charm of a Gdansk or Krakow

This was our first ‘city square’ on this European trip and later in the trip Prague and Vienna city squares really outshone Poznan but it is still very nice. We walked in from the hotel two nights in a row and the old architecture and atmosphere of the square lets you know you’re in Europe! There are plenty of dinner... More

This area is very beautiful and they have rebuilt it after the war. Go there to visit it and don't forget.

The Old Market Square is an impressive example of diligence and craftsmanship of the Polish people. After almost completely destroyed during WW II it was nicely rebuilt. It is really enjoyable to walk around around. If you are in Poznan you must not miss it.
