Poznan is a town steeped in history, as it was the first capital (with Gniezno) of Poland and seen by many as the birthplace of the Polish nation. Today it is a diverse and vibrant town, with much to divert the traveller.
It has a stunningly rejuvenated central square, thriving night-life, fascinating museums and many attractions in the surrounding area. For train buffs, Poznan is the home of Europe's last surviving steam-hauled passenger service.
With a strategic position on the Berlin – Moscow train line, Poznan will be for many their first experience of Poland.
