depends what you need to do and what you want to do

Is Euro is also a choice for valid money?

no - polish currency is zloty

can I exhange my euro with zloty in a easier way in Poznan?

yes - changing currency will not be a problem - look for kantors

I you have Visa/Visa Electron or Maestro/Master Card you don't need to have cash. you can easly pay in hipermarkets, supermarkets, pubs, shops. you can take also directly zloty from cashpoint using your card.

when i was in england i had my maestro and in this way i took pounds (i had zloty accound)

the best currency is beetwen banks ....

how much you need for one month...

write me befor where you are going to stay (Students House, Rent a flat, motel/hostel, hotel)
what you are going to do (how many beers you going to drink ;), how often you going to go for disco) than i will write you how much you need.

prices for some groceries:

4x500 ml can Carlsberg beer (Tesco) 9 zl
0,75 l Mineral water (NaƂeczowianka) 1,45
1,5 l Mineral water (Zywiec) 2 zl
2 l Juice Costa (orange,multivitamin,grapefruit,etc) 3,29
0,5 l Beer at city center 5-15 zl (depent of local)
0,25 l Red Bull 7 zl
0,5 l Polish vodka 17-30 zl depent of mark

0,5 kg Polish bread 2-3 zl


-student restaurant 7-12 zl
-restaurant 20 and more

i think 1000 euro will be ok

more euro more fun

Only change what you need for that day at the airport.

I was at Poznan airport yesterday and the rate is a lot worse than you will find in the many "Kantor" (money exchange) places around Poznan.

I was changing Sterling Pounds

Airport Rate was 4.9zl for £1
Kantor Rate was 5.4zl for £1

So change enough to get you a cab to the centre and change the rest at a Kantor
