Poland, Poznan – Walks and Culture

Published: 21.12.2020
Poznan is one of the oldest Polish cities and in the past was a very important connection between Berlin and Warsaw. It is the seat of the first diocese in Poland at all (later the archbishopric).

Thanks to the fact that Poznań lies between Warsaw and Berlin, there is a good connection both with the rest of Poland and with the whole of Europe. There is an airport from where you can change to Prague, Vienna or other European destinations. International and classic express trains pass by, and the bus connection is not bad at all. Local bus and tram transport is relatively easy. You can buy tickets at vending machines at stops or via SMS.

I would recommend the Free Walking Tour to explore the city center. It will take about 2.5 hours and you will walk through the most famous places in Poznan. The guide is always Polish and the tour is in English. It is open to anyone, without prior reservation, just show up at the meeting place. Admission is voluntary and is usually collected after the entire tour. You will walk through the main square with the town hall, Ostrow Tumski, the church of St. Stanislaus, the Cathedral of St. Peter and Paul and other sights. But on the other hand, they will acquaint you a little with Polish cuisine, history, advise you on a good restaurant and cafe. For undemanding travelers, it is an ideal opportunity to get to know the city in historical and cultural contexts in a short time.

Then you can visit the Croissant Museum, the Citadel Park, Lake Malta, the National Museum, the local castle or the botanical garden. There is also a popular zoo for children. There is a lot to see, it depends on what you enjoy and what you like. And since Adam Mickiewicz University is well-known and extensive, you will come across a lot of young people and foreign students. This has the advantage that young people here speak English and are not afraid to help tourists.

In terms of price, Poznan is a bit cheaper than, for example, Warsaw or Krakow. Almost everywhere today you can pay by card, or. and euros, so Polish money is not even needed. Most tourists combine a visit to Poznan with a later transfer to the north of Poland (Warsaw, Gdańsk, Gdynia or Szczecin), to Germany or to the south of Poland (Wroclaw, Krakow). Poland offers very beautiful destinations to explore and travel.

Poland, Warsaw – Forgotten City

The largest city of Poland and also the capital of the country. Only sledomly people imagine it an interesting place worthy making a trip. We were very hesitant if to go there at first. It takes 8 hours by train from Prague (for considerable amount of money you can buy a night train). A flight ticket costs around 3000. Eventually, we decided for the cheapest option – a day train ride (a return ticket costs about 1400 Czech crowns).

Jakuszyce village is situated in the Jizerske Mountains but in Poland, mere six kilometers by E65 road from Harrachov to Szklarska Poreba. People who love historic landmarks will be probably disappointed but people who love relax and sport will love it there. In the summer season, bikers can make a use of a vast network of trails as well as walkers. In the winter season, high altittude and climate make the area around Jakuszyce a great place for cross-country skiers. They can ride on 100 kilometers of ski trails of varied difficulties. These cross-country tracks in Poland are connected to tracks in the Czech Republic.

In our countries, the Middle Bohemian period is still often perceived as the Dark Age. But it was during these "dark" times that many of our greatest treasures of art created by such masters as Karel Skreta, Jan Blaze Santini Aichl and the Dientzenhofers emerged to light . And the glorious Baroque treasures, which were created during the Thirty Years' War, are also pride in neighboring Poland. Indeed, a piece of today's Poland was part of the Bohemian Crown.
