Old Market Square, Poznan

4.7
The city's historical central plaza, Old Market Square is home to an array of colorful and interesting buildings. Established in the 11th century, it has undergone numerous transformations, including severe damage during World War II. Its reconstruction was rapid and successful, and today the large square boasts a number of fashionable bars, cafes, restaurants, and stores. Some of its most striking buildings include the Renaissance-style old town hall, weighing house, arsenal gallery, guardhouse, and the row of 16th century merchants' houses. Weather permitting, you can enjoy a Polish beer and plateful of pierogi (Polish dumplings) on one of the bustling terraces. Our Poznan trip itinerary planning website makes visiting Old Market Square and other Poznan attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • One of the most old market squares of Poland. Clean, nice café’s,... In the evening its a lively place, but very safe. It is in the center of the town and very near shopping streets and shopping malls...  more »
  • A really cosy place in the city. There are plenty of cafes and restaurants around the square, as well as a part of small cosy souvenir stalls. We stayed at the Brovaria Hotel also located on the square. As I clearly can recommend
