Did you say Potsdam? No! This is Poznan. The capital of the Wielkopolska region and easily accessible from most European cities. Although a largely industrial city it has a high student population and a rich history which makes for an interesting and fun trip for people from all walks of life. The main attractions of the city are centred around Stary Rynek (the old square). The town hall and vendors' houses are particularly beautiful and the bars and restaurants surrounding them compliment their splendour.
The nightlife in Poznan is thriving and party-goers can expect all-night entertainment in every corner of the city. For those that prefer the daylight hours however, must-see attractions include Mickiewicz Square, the Zamek, Franciscan Church, the National Museum and Renaissance Hall. Get outdoors in the summer and visit the expansive and beautiful Malta Lake or the Citadel Park. Whether it's a cultural eye-opener or a fun weekend with your friends that you're looking for then the Poznan experience is one not to be missed!
