Poznan

Poznań, a city on the Warta River in western Poland, has a population of just over 500,000 people and is Poland’s fifth largest city. Its picturesque Old Town is clustered around the Market Square with its Renaissance-style buildings. East of the Old Town is an island called Ostrów Tumski, or Cathedral Island, with the magnificent Saints Peter and Paul Cathedral. Poznan has not one but two castles and a wealth of other historical buildings and interesting museums. Like all Polish cities, Poznan has a long and chequered history and during the last 150 years alone it has seen Prussian, Nazi German and Communist Russian domination before eventually becoming part of an independent modern nation.

Park Inn  Website Trip Advisor Page This Radisson hotel is ideally located on a quiet street just east of the Market Square. It has all the amenities of a high-end hotel (air-conditioning, room safe, bar, restaurant, fitness area etc.) but is still very affordable, even in high season. The décor is modern and stylish, with a musical motif in the foyer, and the staff are very friendly and helpful. Staying here on a second visit would be a no-brainer. (Szyperska 22, 61-754 Poznan, Poland)

Bamberka  Website Trip Advisor Page This beautiful little restaurant is located in the Market Square right next to the Town Hall. The traditional Polish food on offer verges on fine dining but with moderate prices. The young, smartly-attired staff are unfailingly polite and helpful. On a second visit to Poznan this would be our first port of call. (Stary Rynek 2, 61-772 Poznań, Poland) Da Luigi  Website Trip Advisor Page This lovely little pizzeria is on the way from the Park Inn to the Market Square. The welcome is warm, the prices are very affordable and the food is just fine. Customer service is a particular strength and the restaurant attracts a lot of local custom in addition to passing tourists. Can be strongly recommended. (Woźna 1, 61-779 Poznań, Poland) Olivio  Trip Advisor Page Olivio is a gem of an Italian restaurant located just off the Market Square towards St. Stanislaus’ Basilica. The décor features murals of typical Italian scenes including the Colosseum, the Bocca della Verità etc. and the atmosphere is very welcoming. The excellent food is freshly prepared and the service is outstanding. Try it. (Świętosławska 9, 61-840 Poznań, Poland) Pierogarnia Stary Mlyn  Website Trip Advisor Page This is one of a chain of lively and quirky restaurants specialising in pierogi, the traditional Polish dumplings (think ravioli). Located just off the north-west corner of the Market Square, the restaurant interior features several distinct eating areas on different levels. The food is inexpensive and of a good quality and the service is prompt. Well worth a try. (Zamkowa 7, 61-768 Poznań, Poland)
