One of the oldest and largest cities in Poland, Poznan is located on the Warta River in the central-western region of the country. Poznan dates back to the turn of the first millennium and has been a capital city for various political and administrative regions during its history.
With its cobblestone streets, churches, museums and colourful and lively burgher houses, the Old Town of Poznan is a pleasant surprise for anyone who stops by for a visit. Take a stroll to the central market square and you’ll instantly get a feel for the vibrancy of Wielkopolska’s charismatic capital. The Old Town district is vibrant at any time of the day but especially at night when masses flock to its many restaurants, bars and cafes. The city is buzzing at any time of the year thanks to the combination of its student population and international business travellers.
Today, Poznan is still considered a major economic power in Poland, second only to Warsaw in size and prosperity. It holds a reputation as a city of trade fairs, partly thanks to it being midway between Paris and Moscow.
