Old Market Square, Poznan

(1,500+ reviews on the web)
Landmark
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.

  • Plenty of bars and restaurants. Nice atmosphere. Not spoiled by stag/hen do's. Safe and the square is pedestrian. Close to the main attractions.  more »
