This is one of the most colorful places in Poznań! A must-see! The elegant colorful houses surround the Townhall and all buildings have been recently renovated. It gives you an opportunity to imagine how was life two of three centuries ago here. All foreign tourists appreciate the so-called "restaurant gardens" - the tables outside to fully enjoy the good weather.... More

There is a lot to see here and there are myriad stalls, cafes, restaurants and shops not to mention the street entertainers that are always to be found. In Poland there is no substitute for standing in... More

This is still the place to be in Poznan. Everydoby usually meet here, either in from of Ratusz (the city council) or in fron of the statue, but I cannot recall how Poznanians call it...Sorry! It is very nice over here, especially in late spring or summer when all restaurants have tables outside and it is extremely pleasant to have... More

The architecture is stunning and well worth a closer inspection. Regrettably, the ambiance is spoiled by a myriad of market stalls cluttering every open space, giving the feeling of a medina rather... More
