Poznan’s strategic location makes it a natural stopping point for anyone on an interrailing adventure throughout Central and Eastern European. The stunning Polish city is slap bang between Berlin and Warsaw and it is regularly frequented by international travelers, who are typically in town for the renowned trade fairs that Poznan is known to host. Poznan offers a lot more than a place to kip in between railway tracks, however, and has in recent years become one of Poland’s favorite tourist destinations.
Typical of many fairytaleesque and colorful towns, Poznan is revolved around a quaint old market square and is also aligned with many awe inspiring multicolored, medieval houses. As the former Polish capital, Poznan certainly isn’t one of the country’s smallest cities and with a city of this size, you will naturally find quite a sizable student population along with a significant amount of activities to enjoy.
Some attractions to look out for include imperial castle, cathedral island, citadel park, Poznan town hall, along with tours of some spooky, ancient catacombs that run below the city. A brewery tour of Lech Poznan is highly recommended for students who are fond of the gold stuff. Meanwhile a trip to Brewery 50/50 is another favorable activity for some student classes and societies, not for it’s larger but for a huge array of shopping opportunities as the centre has been converted into a colossal shopping district and was formerly voted as the best medium sized shopping centre in the world. Meanwhile, students on the Poznan class or society trip who are not so keen to shop can always enjoy a guided tour of the former 19th century brewery and some unorthodox and interesting items stored in the centre such as a Persian carpet.
When Poznan is also known to have one of the most supportive football fan bases in the world, another tour that wouldn’t go amiss on the Poznan class or society trip is a visit to The Municipal Stadium, for the atmosphere alone if nothing else.
Some other activities that should certainly appeal to your class or society trip are our sports and games such as bobsledding, bubble football, a trip to a water park, dodgeball, husky sledding, paintball, segway tours, skiing/snowboarding and skydiving.
Afterwards, your Poznan student class or society trip can always enjoy the casual and cool vibe around Malta Lake and Warta River which offers up cafes, manmade beaches and wall murals and exhibitions or the occasional concert to absorb over a few evening drinks.
As one of the four largest academic cities in Poland, with around 140,000 students, it’s no surprise that Poznan offers epic student, class or society nights out. While the main heart of Poznan’s fantastic nightlife is focused around the main square, there are other great bar and club dedicated districts like Nowowiejskiego and Taczaka. Team popular student nights with a large influx of international travelers and non existing licensing laws and you have the the makings of an unforgettable student, class or society night out in Poznan.
