Check out the FART resteraunt.

I had to get a photo of that,

Good sights in poznan....,

Stary browar you can't miss it, again stary rynek is very pretty, Brovaria in the old square do awesome beer, If you like clubbing SQ is very good, as is Pozdali, if the weather is good Pozdali plaza near the train station is quite good and has an outdoor pool, Citadela is also apparently very pretty but never been, looks huge though. The cathedral is also worth a look.

Avoid walking around jezyce, debiec and wilda districts at night as they can get quite rough,

Rodeo drive in stary browar do awesome food as does the Sushi bar on the ground floor of the WBK building near Stary Browar. Avoid the bistro cafes as they generally aren't very hygenic but are stupidly cheap.

Pubs worth visiting, Brogans is usually quite good, Kultowa, Johnny rocker, Minoga smells of sewage but the atmosphere is good, Terratorium is also quite a good club. Dragon is full of expats as is Prolitariat.

Can't think of anything else to add.

Last time I was in Dragon, it was full of sleazy 40-something expats trying to pull 18-19 year old Polish girls who were obviously using them for their money. :/

forget Poznan I must recommend Gorzow :)

HaHa Gorzow... I was fortunate enough to live there for 8 months

So... to Poznan.

I'd recommend a few things:

1) Visit the Lech Brewery. Call them up and say you would like a tour, try give them 24 hours notice. They give you a really interesting private tour lasting about 2 hours, you get to see the process from start to finish and finally end up in the bar where you usually get a couple of free pints of Lech Pilsner.

It's about a 25zl taxi ride from the Town Square, take a bit of cash with you as you can get nice Lech branded T-shirts for about 12zl.

2) The War Cemetery is worth a visit, there is a huge park about a 20 minute walk from the town square with a war museum and some cemetery quite close to it. Graves of fallen soldiers/airforce from Poland/Russia/UK

I'm shy:

3) Rooster's - No more explanation needed (think Hooters in the US)

4) Other Stuff: The new shopping place in the old Lech Brewery is amazing, really nice bars on the top floor, good cinema etc. Bars in the Town Square are very chilled out, some great places on the side streets also.

I've travelled all over Poland and in my opinion nothing beats Poznan. Much prefer it to Krakow, Gdansk, Wroclaw and yes... EVEN Gorzow WP.

Admins... There seems to be a problem with images, trying again on new post:

War Cemetary:

HaHa... I decapitated myself as a certain someone wouldn't be very happy to see my arm around a Rooster Girl. We once dined nearby and she looked on in utter disgust.

I was of course equally disgusted... and went back the next day with a mate for a 3 hour dinner, vodka shots, dancing on the bar and many photos.

I thought the Roosters place was some awful chicken restaurant!

Clearly I know nothing about this city :/

I know this thread is old but there is no way I would recommend SQ. They charge way too high a cover, the DJs are usually terrible, and the service is bad (of course, the service is bad everywhere). For clubs I would say Blueberry, Czekolada and Pozdali are the best, but I guess a lot depends on your age range.

Merged: Short film from Poznan and some questions for you.

For those who have never been in Poznan :



By the way I have some questions for you, foreigners living in Poland: how and where did you find out informations about Poland ? I mean was it website or friends etc. ?

I will be very thankful for answers :)

Wow it looks so much better on film than in reality and even better in the dark.

The only place I haven't been there is the football stadium I think. There is much more to see than than in that excellent clip though!
