Popular Poznan! This old city is perfect for city breakers. With bags of attractions, atmosphere and nightlife on offer here, what more could the discerning visitor wish for?
The range of museums on offer is generous, the historic city centre offers pretty churches, cafes, nightclubs and cobbled streets and when escape is required there are a number of large open spaces like the Citadela and Chopin Park. Further afield are the popular lakes of Malta, Rusalka and Kiekrz offering perfect picnic spots and water sporting facilities.
With a central position, Poznan is ideally situated for trade fairs, national and international events and to boot, offers an excellent place to study. The high student population here is largely responsible for the lively atmosphere in and around its city centre.
Situated in the western centre of Poland, Poznan has spread out from its initial resting spot on the River Warta, it is currently is the fourth largest industrial centre in the country and excels in the areas of industry, trade and education.
Poznan’s initial existence ties in with when the island of Ostrow Tumski was founded in about the ninth century. It wasn’t too long later (during the 10th century)that the country’s first cathedral was established.
A significant producer of trade during the Middle Ages, it wasn’t until the nineteenth century that considerable levels of production took off with its early steel mill and railway factory.
Every good city has one and Poznan is no exception for it too has an historical Old Town, the magnificent Stare Miasto.
Getting out and about the city couldn’t be easier thanks to the presence of the lively Poznan Glowny railway station. From here, travelling to Warsaw awards you the choice of about twenty trains a day and other cities such as Krakow, Gdansk and Wroclaw have regular services from here too. Travelling further a field is easy from here also with fast trains to Berlin running frequently as well as direct connections to Cologne, Moscow and Budapest. While the trains are efficient, getting around the city aboard a tram is possibly the cheapest (as well as most novel) way to travel.
Poznan has some delightful green spots to offer in the areas around the town, only a short bus or tram ride away. This is handy knowing when inner city meanderings demand escape and tranquillity.
The artificial Lake Malta never fails to attract those ‘outdoorsy’ types for its leisure and recreational facilities. You name it, you can do it here from rowing to dry skiing. This is also the venue for the famous Malta Regatta.
For gothic architecture second to none, don’t miss the Basilica of St Peter and St Paul. An incredible building project that was completed in the tenth century, named after St Peter’s basilica in the Vatican, it was actually the first church to achieve Cathedral status in Poland.
A top tourist attraction in town and one of the largest castles in Poland is the Royal Castle. Dating from 1249, the castle of the legendary dark Hill of Przemysl is said to be haunted. Hopefully your visit will go unhindered by the dark forces but if not, as legend has it, you might see the White Lady wandering about the castle rooms. The castle is a shell of its former self having been greatly destroyed during World War Two. What you see before you today comes as the result of a concentrated effort to restore it to its former glory.
Other sightseeing treats in store for your visit to Poznan include the New Theatre, the Old Zoo and the Botanical Gardens.
The highlight of the Poznan cultural calendar is that of the Malta Theatre Festival. This is closely followed by the annual Classical Music Festival and then the Henryk Wieniawski Violin Awards that are held every half decade.
