City facts

  • Poznan has a humid continental climate with oceanic influences. The average temperature is around 20°C  (68°F) in July and August, the warmest months, with some days getting significantly hotter, and −1°C  (30°F) in January, the coldest month. July is by far the most humid month and has frequent thunderstorms; February is the driest. Snowfall occurs in Poznan every winter.
  • The first capital of Poland and seen by many as the birthplace of the nation, Poznan is a historically important place. Capital of the historic Greater Poland region, today it has a population of around 530,000 people, making it the fifth-largest city in the country. Around 900,000 more people live in the larger Poznan metropolitan area. The city is made up of five districts that are further divided into 42 neighborhoods. Stare Miasto, or the Old Town, is the district that has most of the city’s landmarks and some of the most beautiful architecture.

Top sights and activities

  • Town Hall. Located in Stary Rynek, the city’s famous old square, Poznan’s town hall is a mixture of Gothic and Renaissance styles. It has been called the most beautiful Renaissance building north of the Alps and is one of the symbols of the city. Its halls and courtrooms make it as impressive from the inside as it is from outside. Today, the town hall houses the Historical Museum of Poznan. It is also famous for its two mechanical goats who butt their heads each day at noon time.
  • Old Jesuits’ College. Built as a school for the Jesuit religious order, the old college hosted Napoleon I when he marched towards Russia in the early 19th century and later held concerts for Frederic Chopin, Poland’s most famous composer. Even if you take all the history away, it would still be one of the most beautiful buildings in the city.
  • Imperial Castle. Although not particularly old - it was built in the early 20th Century for the German emperor William II - Poznan's Zamek is one of the most impressive in Poland. The castle was built in a Neo-Romanesque style, with its fountain purposefully made to resemble the Fountain of the Lions of Alhambra in Granada.
  • The National Museum. The largest in Poznan, the National Museum is in fact made up of several distinct museums. These include the main building which houses artwork by famous Polish masters, as well as foreign painters like Monet and Velazquez, but also the Ethnography Museum, the Museum of Musical Instruments, and others. Three impressive palaces, Rogalin, Gołuchów, and Śmiełów, which are located in and near Poznan, are also considered to be a part of the museum. Visit the museum’s official website to learn more.
  • Church of Saint John of Jerusalem Outside the walls. Dating back to the 11th century, this small, but fascinating house of prayer is, for many, among the interesting attractions of Poznan. The church’s name comes from its peculiar location outside the original city walls, and it is also highly unique through the fact that its exterior and interior combine several architectural styles. The church of St. John can be found in the southeastern Nowe Miasto area of the city.

  • While the general quality of roads in Poland has improved immensely during the last 2 decades, some rural roads, especially in the northernmost, southernmost, and easternmost parts of the country can still be in a rather bad shape. It is a good idea to set out your route in advance and look up the roads you’ll be driving.

  • If you’re the driver, you need to have your passport or ID card with you at all times.

Toll roads

There are a number of toll roads in Poland. Some roads use an open toll system while others use a closed toll system. In open toll system, the payment is made upon entering the toll road. In closed toll system, the driver will be given a printed ticket that will state the time and point of entry of the toll road; the toll fee will be calculated and paid when exiting the road.

Payment can be made either in cash or by credit card. If you choose to pay in cash, you can pay in three currencies, Euros, Polish zloty (PLN), or United States dollars (USD), but keep in mind that even if you pay in one of the two foreign currencies, you might be given change in zloty. As of July 2019, 1 EUR = 4.25 PLN.

Ideas for day trips

  • Morasko Meteorite Nature Reserve. One of just two such places to be found in Europe, Morasko is a nature reserve dedicated to a meteor crater (or, to be more precise, seven of them). Scientists think that the impact happened about 5,000 years ago; several extremely heavy fragments of the meteorite have been found in the crater lakes. A place of otherworldly feel, the site is located just 12km (7.4 miles) north of Poznan city center.
  • Kornik. The small town of Kornik is best known for its impressive 14th Century castle. Built in a Gothic Revival style, its arches were also inspired by the Islamic art of India. Nowadays, the castle houses a museum and library and is surrounded by Kórnik Arboretum, a beautiful green area of large alleys and many unique tree and shrub species. Located just 25km (16 miles) southeast of Poznan, Kornik can be reached in about 25 minutes.
  • Wielkopolski National Park. Made up glacial lakes and thick woodlands and inhabited by many different species of fauna and flora, Wielkopolski is a great place to escape the business of the city. It’s near, too - Jeziory, where the park’s headquarters is located, is just 18km (11.1 miles) southwest of Poznan and can be reached in about 20 minutes by car, making it a perfect day-trip destination.
  • Bydgoszcz. Although not as famous as Warsaw, Poznan, or Lodz, the city of Bydgoszcz is a lovely under-the-radar destination in Central Poland. Home to many heritage buildings and historically known as Little Berlin, it is nowadays a lively student city and boasts quirky attractions like the Museum of Soap and Dirt. The drive from Poznan takes only about 90 minutes.
  • Wroclaw. A famous university city, Wroclaw is one of the most interesting destinations of the southern Silesia region. Attractions include the Rynek, one of the largest town squares in Europe, the scenic Cathedral Island area, St. Elizabeth’s Church, and the Botanic Garden of Wroclaw. The drive from Poznan takes about 2 hours and 10 minutes.

Most popular cars

The most popular rental car in Poznan is the VW Golf, but many travelers also go for the Seat Ibiza and the Toyota Aygo. The most popular rental car types are compact, economy, and mini.

Further destinations

  • The Baltic Sea. Poland might not be famous as a beach destination, but you shouldn’t miss the chance to see its extensive coastline. From modern coastal cities to impressive wooden piers, high-quality spas, and remote fishing villages, it has plenty to offer. Warm and enjoyable in summer and picturesque in winter, the Baltic coast is easily reached, with its largest city, Gdansk, just 330km (205 miles) northeast of Poznan and other destinations on the coast even closer.
  • Krakow. With perhaps the highest concentration of stunning churches and cathedrals in Europe, Krakow is a prime historic destination. Take your time walking through its squares, medieval streets, and along River Vistula. Then get in your rental car and visit the salt mines in Wieliczka or go for the summits of the nearby Tatra Mountains. Located 465km (289 miles) southeast of Poznan, Krakow can be reached in about five hours.
  • Berlin. Fun, charming, and way more affordable than London or Paris, the capital city of Germany remains one of the best travel destinations in Europe. Famous for its eclectic architecture, unique neighborhoods, world-class museums, and relaxed way of life, you shouldn’t miss your chance to visit, especially since Berlin is just 270km (167 miles) west of Poznan and can be reached in about three hours. To make this trip, you’d have to cross an international border between Poznan and Berlin, so ask your rental car provider in advance if they permit this.
