Not sure if the street vendors are there all year long, but they have a wide variety of wares and foods to sample. Don't miss the goat coming out of the steeple at 12:00 on Sunday. Nice atmosphere. Picturesque with the old buildings around (many were rebuilt in the old style).

Old market square is a must see in Poznan. Why? In points to make this quick and less painful: - date on 1253, 141 m each side - Renaissance town hall - extremely bold & beautiful, with a "funny device" - a pair of tapping goats - 4 fountains - 2 museums: Military Museum of Greater Poland and Museum of...

Many restaurants and bars. Interesting architecture but birks on the streets are not comfortable for walking.

Poznan square is underrated. However I believe that the buildings are great but the atmosphere created by the go go bar and those clubs which are allowed to pump out music completely lower the tone of the city During the weekends especially. Having a beer on the square is gorgeous in the good weather but poznan council need to make... More

Picturesque square with pristinely reconstructed facades. The noon goat show is quite amusingly underwhelming but the school kids who gathered were engaged. Most things closed on Mondays - including the Town Hall.

Great place to walk around even on a cold day. Lots of places to eat, relax, have a beer, or people watch. Heavily monitored area by Police 24 hours per day so fairly secure. Go and enjoy it! Old Europe at its most interesting and make sure to walk the streets best way to see it all.

As per the trip advisor reviews the square is very beautiful. The architecture is great. Lots of nice bars and restaurants on and just off the square. A great base for a night out. We had a tapas. Can't recall the name though! :(

What a beautiful (and underrated) European old town. The mix of renovated buildings and those that aren't gives Poznan the feel of a 'real' old town, and not just a postcard. The Ratusz, the market square buildings, 'breathtaking'... My only complaint is that they should destroy the communist building in the center of the square. Mr. Jaśkowiak, it doesn't belong... More
