Me and a few of my mates are off to Poznan for a weekend in July. Have booked a tour around the Lech brewery and am wondering what the beer prices are like. Also what are the best pubs/clubs are.

Cheers

If you come here then please respect the country and do not behave like morons like a lot of them do when they come here.

As to the price of beer in Poznan, I am not sure but here in Puławy it is 4zl per 'pint' GB around £1.

From memory, Poznan is between 6zl and 8zl in most places and 10zl in the expensive places.

When did the pound go as low as 4zl? Last time I looked it was about 5zl to £1.

GBP is hovering around 4.4 - 4.5.

This was with the Post Office in Uk. Wondering if I'd get a better exchange rate in Poland itself?

Yes, most certainly. My regular exchange office is currently offering 4.47zl for each pound you bring them.

Don't keep up with exchange rates as I just hand it over because I am so rich - but being serous I did say around £1. :)

Beer is between 7zl and 9zl in most places.

As you are coming in the Summer your best bet is find the main square where there are loads of pubs with gardens, most of them are good for sitting outside. Two pubs you should visit are Dragon it is on Ul. Zamkowa 5 and Meskalina on Stary Rynek 6. With the two I have mentioned you are better off heading there later (around midnight)

Me neither. I only earn in any currency other than zloty a couple of times a year and buy other currency even less often than that.

I just hand it over because I am so rich

I'd be rich too if I was only paying 4zl for each beer! Couple of weeks back I went to a Warsaw pub which shall not be named and had two pints of cider, a pint of ale and a pack of porky scratchings: the bill was 74zl!

Dragon is indeed well worth a visit.

What's the name and address of that weird basement place which I know only as the K-hole?

Hey, Im going to Poznan as well. This is a completely different question though. I am leaving on Sunday and Im desperate not to miss the Klitschko vs. Haye fight on July 2nd.

Ant clue if this fight will be shown anywhere in Poznan? Boxing seems to be a reasonably big sport in Poland.

Cheers,

Maxim

@ Harry the place you call the k-hole is a bit crap now not so popular I don't remember the address though

@ Maxim this place will show the boxing for sure inyourpocket.com/poland/poznan/bars-pubs-clubs/barspubs/Kri ek-Belgian-Pub-and-Cafe_56244v you should phone and reserve a table in advance though as it is small and gets busy the owner speaks English so you shouldn't have any problems. I will be watching the fight in there myself.

Why don't you buy at a shop? It is PLN 3.50 per half liter ;-)

Not the stuff I buy! My regular tipple is a very enjoyable 2.19zl at Carefour.

Yes, I was just joking you had to be a rich man only having the beer out ;-) On the other hand, I pay 6 zloty at Gniazdo Piratów, so it really depends where you drink in Warsaw.

3.50 for 1/2 a litre?

For the good stuff in a monopolowy, yes. But much less in Biedronka or Tesco. Between 7 and 10 in the pubs.

Yes mister,finally you will be able to afford to drink as many as you want and then sleep on the sidewalk covered in your own vomits just like you Brits like it.Cheers mate.

and then sleep on the sidewalk

Point of langauge - we Brits actually call this a pavement, that is when we still retain the power of speech after a night out;)

Others answered better than me ;)

Anyway, the cheapest at the minute is 4.50zl, but not in any pub that he will come across. 5-6zl in many places off-Rynek, going right up to 13zl in a hotel bar (but who drinks there?). For a tourist, I'd say to budget between 6-9zl for a beer.

Me and a few of my mates are off to Poznan for a weekend in July.

What weekend?

I'd be happy to show you a few bars if I'm here.
