“An architectural gem often overlooked”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2013

Poznan's historic Old Market Square is centered on a Renaissance Town Hall whose clocktower features two goats butting heads at noon. The square is beautifully restored and illuminated at night, and now features many fine restaurants offering very good food and atmosphere at reasonable prices. Poznan (and several other Polish cities) offer a pleasant way to walk through European history without breaking the budget.

“Absolutely beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2013

When you enter this square for the first time it's WOW...Check out the old Town Hall, the Weigh House, the Fish Sellers houses and all the other beautiful old buildings which date back to the 16th century. Lots were damaged during WWII but have been painstakingly restored. Plenty of little cafes and restaurants. If you visit Poznan you must vist the Old Market Square.

“Great for tourists”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013

Visited there recently during their Christmas Market. The folk items are reasonably priced and they feature a lot of traditional Polish foods. There are also a lot of restaurants and cafes, a beautiful church, and a variety of shops all year round. Don't skip out on this place if it's your first time to Poznan.

“The medieval, charming market.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

The heart of Poznan, charming, colourful, medieval houses and the beautiful Reneissance Town Hall in the middle. There are many restaurants, pubs with tables under umbrelas in the squre in the summer, the meeting point, but not too crowded, nice atmosphere.
