The cradle of Polish statehood. A fascinating testimony to a millennium of history, culture and a spirit of entrepreneurship.

Taking advantage of its location at the crossroad of many trade routes, Poznań developed greatly over several centuries. The wealth of the historic city and its trading character is still visible through its magnificent architecture and uniquely colourful Main Square. At the end of the 18th century, the city became part of Prussia. During the partitions, Poles became a target of brutal persecutions and Germanization. Unlike in other parts of the former Poland, their response was not only in armed resistance. Over the next decades, they are rather focused on development in all kinds of fields – educational, social and economic. That is why you will still feel here more… grounded than in the other parts of Poland 🙃

As one of the economic and cultural centres of Poland, known for organizing international fairs, present-day Poznań is bustling with life. It is also one of the biggest university hubs. Some even say it’s the friendliest city in the country. Join our Old Town Free Walkative! Tour to feel the inspiring energy of the capital of Wielkopolska!

After visiting the Old Town we recommend taking the Poznań Imperial District Tour to get the sense of how Poznań transformed at the beginning of the 20th century.

Meeting Point
Plac Wolności (Freedom Square), next to the fountain. Look for the guide with yellow umbrella.
