WHAT TO DO IN POZNAŃ?

You love parties and night life? Poznań boasts one of the most vibrant and fast-growing drag scenes in Poland! If you’re here for a weekend, it’s very likely you’ll get to see a performance by a drag queen or some other queer artist. Pop in to Lokum Stonewall, our official drink bar. It’s located at Półwiejska 28, only a 10-minute walk from the hostel. Later, you could move your party to HAH Poznań – the best rainbow night club in Poland! It’s 500 metres away from our hostel. This is a perfect distance for a post-party walk at dawn!

You love good food? In Poznań, there’s plenty of incredible restaurants specialising in cuisines from all over the world. We particularly recommend visiting the Jeżyce district. There you’ll find restaurants serving Kirghiz, Mexican, Korean, and Indian food – to name just a few – all within short distance. When visiting the Jeżyce district, you can also taste traditional Japanese desserts and have a hearty vegan lunch or dinner.

Poznań has a lot in store for those preferring more traditional sightseeing. History of the capital of Wielkopolska goes back over 1,000 years. The landmarks worth visiting include: the Cathedral Island – the burial place of Polish kings from the Piast dynasty, the Renaissance Town Hall which some consider “the most beautiful town hall north of the Alps”, or the Kaiser’s Castle built in the early 20th century. Those who like visiting churches (we don’t judge) should see the baroque Parish Church. Its construction began in 1651.

Those craving history should see Porta Posnania – a modern museum telling the story of the beginnings of the Polish state through multimedia and lights. Speaking of museums, there’s plenty of those in Poznań! Of course, the National Museum is worth mentioning here along with the Museum of Musical Instruments – it’s the only one of its kind in Poland. In the neighbourhood – only a few steps away from our hostel – there’s also the Poznań Croissant Museum and Experience.

If you prefer spending time outdoors, Poznań won’t let you down. We recommend going to the Warta riverbank and checking out the rich offer of KontenerART. You can also go for a walk at the Lake Malta, see the Botanical Garden, or the Palm House. Right next to the New Zoo, there’s a walking trail among the treetops – the second of its kind in Poland. Nearby, there’s also the biggest water sports and recreation complex in Poland – Malta Thermal Baths.
