Situated on the Warta River, the colors of Poznan are vibrant and alive. It is an important cultural center for Poland, especially with its status as one of the nation’s oldest cities. The Renaissance flavors of the Old Town will create a craving that will have you keep coming back for more.
Although most of the landmarks and historic buildings are centered around the Old Town and one could spend an entire holiday exploring that area, there is much to see outside of that district. The Imperial Castle, for example, has been turned into a theatrical institution that has an impressive set of gardens that make for the perfect stroll.
Malta is another popular place to be in Poznan. There is an artificial lake in the center of this park and along one of the banks is a ski and sledding slope. You’ll also find a complex of swimming pools to enjoy, including one that is constructed to Olympic dimensions.
Music events are held in Poznan on a regular basis as well. The Henryk Wieniawski Violin Competition, held just once every 5 years, is a reason to plan a holiday in Poznan when the event cycles around. Concerts by the philharmonic orchestra are held monthly and the Poznan Nightingales put on an amazing show that should not be missed.
From the cobblestone pathways of the Old Town to the modern amenities that you may need to relax, Poznan has something for everyone. Discover what is waiting for you here today.
