Short history of Poznan, Poland
Poznan has always played an important role in the Polish history. That’s where the country was created, where the capital was located, where the strong independence movement took place in the XIXth century and where the anti-communist protests happened in 1956. Half of the Old Town’s building, as in many other Polish cities, was destroyed during II World War. Still, Poznań was rebuilt in a really fine manner and now is one of the most beautiful cities in Poland.
My impressions from Poznan
Even if it’s located only 2.5 hours away from Warsaw I’ve been only 2 or 3 times in Poznan before, either really long time ago or for a very short time. So I was more than happy to finally see it properly, especially with such an excellent local guides! It’s such a pleasant city, full of life (and too many shopping centers), modern yet with beautiful old-ish architecture, some great street art and definitely a cool vibe. I had a feeling I’d feel pretty comfortable living there and now I hope this visit was just the first one from many more to come in future!
