Poznan doesn't boast the best Stary Rynek in Poland, several of the buildings are recently re-built, heavily renovated, or completely modern. However, it has all the characteristics of a traditional market square, with a prominent town hall and some very pretty buildings on the perimeter. Those that are often photographed are the most historic looking and those in the centre... More

Interesting buildings and little back streets. The daily spectacle of the goats clashing on the Town Hall is fun. Still curious about the two blokes dressed as goats who appear at the same time as the noon salute. They appear, walk about a bit, sit on a bench then leave. Very good quality souvenir shop next to BROVARIA HOTEL...The rest... More

Nice restaurants and beautiful buildings. The Mexican restaurant can be recommended for cocktails and lunch/dinner. Especially the fish tacos were lovely.

The town in unexpectedly lively full of restaurants and bars. the Info center is very helpful and speaks English. Summer time is splendid with the seating area outside. During winter wait for the Christmas market, or take time to find the liveliest joint to enjoy some dinner with friends

First off you must visit for the noon showing of the bucks "fighting" at the City Hall. It's a great thing for kids to watch and is an old regional legend attached to it. As for the old market square - there's pubs-pubs-pubs! It's Poznans party heart and every fri/sat eve it's full of partying people. In the summer it's... More

I visited by day and by night, and it's worth two trips. By night, it's beautifully lit and you see what's on offer in terms of nightlife - bars, restaurants etc. By day, you can see the wonderful architecture and get a real feel for old Poznan.

Most of people living here say it is the most beautiful place in Poznań. It does not take a long time to walk (about 10-15 minutes) so I recommend to seat outside (of corse during summer), drink a coffee or beer and enjoy the nice view.
