Poznan. How to get to Poland by plane, train, bus. Connections


Fifth largest city in the country, Poznan is a little gem waiting to be discovered.
A city full of charm and history: it is no coincidence that it was the first capital of Poland.

Piazza Vecchia and Stare Miasto, the historic center, are the ideal starting point to discover this charming town. The monuments and the splendid colored buildings that form the background of the Town Hall, from which, every day, at 12:00 sharp, the mechanism will start a strange fight between goats!
Ostrów Tumski is the spectacular islet from which the Cathedral stands: truly splendid.


History, culture and an incredible liveliness, day and night, are the fundamental ingredients that conquer visitors. Here, we meet for a drink, or to taste local products.
To relax, we meet on the banks of the Warta River, often a meeting place for young people and students.

And if you want to get away a couple of kilometers from the center, at Lake Malta you will find activities for every taste and genre. Even for the little ones, with the inevitable zoo and the train pulled by an authentic ‘900 locomotive that shuttles around here.
And before leaving the city, don’t forget to taste a Rogal świętomarciński, an original variation of the croissant, now a PGI certified product.


The plane remains, without a doubt, the quickest way to get to the Polish city. From Poland, Germany and neighboring countries, train and bus are excellent alternatives to the plane, sometimes cheaper.


The international airport is located just 7 kilometers from the city center. For a single weekend, or to cover long distances, this is the best way to get to Poznan. The airport offers daily connections to numerous European destinations.
