Poznan, Poland: Colorful student city

Hey girl hey! I’m here to share my travel experiences with you. I grew up in a small village in the south of the
Netherlands, which has always been too small for me. On my nineteenth I went London for an internship where I lived in a hostel. I was so fascinated by all the people I met who where traveling the world, I wanted to be just like them. Now -10 years later- I’ve been to over 40 countries and currently looking for a new home in South America. My biggest dream is to start my own hostel. In this blog I will tell you about my trip to Poznan! – XOXO Kris

Poznan, Poland: Colorful student city

It is so easy to go on weekend getaways from Berlin! So when my cousin visited me, we decided to take the Polskibus to Poznan. After a couple of hours in the bus we arrived in this cute city. Poznan is a student city (I found out that one of my colleagues studied here). It fills the city with young people and a great atmosphere!

The Old Market square is crowded with tall houses standing shoulder to shoulder. The houses are decorated with bright colors, filling the square with all kinds of color. On the square you find a lot of shops, cafe’s and restaurants. We had some beautiful weather so we sat down outside at one of the restaurants. My lunch was great: shrimps with fries and a little salad on the side. It looks absolutely amazing.

There are plenty of shops in Poznan, with cool cheap clothes. It really made me wonder why the people in the town dress so poorly when there are so many options. The shopping mall had a lot of fancy stores, I did pass by those. We walked a lot the entire day, so we felt like we deserved a massage. After a quick search on google we found a Thai massage salon. Luckily they had time for us right away. The massage was really good, I had a bit of a cold so I couldn’t properly breath the pain away. The massage was not nice and relaxing, the ladies really went to town on us. But hey, that is what a Thai massage is all about. The place is called Thai-Land Massage, super original.

We went out for breakfast and found this hip bistro ‘Le TARG’ with an interesting menu. On the menu you can choose between different toasts with fruits and other extraordinary combinations. This is right up my ally, because I love strange combinations. I could go there for breakfast, lunch and dinner!

The second day, we went to Lake Malta. We just walked around the water, the lake is being used for different kinds of water sports. There are a lot of kayak and rowing events on the lake, it has a tribune and some starting blocks on the water where you can take some cool pictures. We stumbled upon a a little train that takes you through the nature. Later, we found out that this is a kids train, but that didn’t kept us from having fun!

Poznan is a small city, worthy of a visit for sure!. Two days in this colorful place is enough. There is not that much to do. The nightlife should be very bubbling and fun but I wasn’t up for it this weekend, so I can’t tell you much about that. But I can tell you: food-wise, you won’t be disappointed.
