ABOUT THE CITY
Poznan... The cradle of Poland, the seat of first kings, bridge between East
and West, South and North throughout the centuries, the biggest Polish
commercial city nowadays, place of the most important fairs and exhibitions.
Fires, floods, decease and wars have often been its fate; but after all Poznan
has retained its former character and some of the ancient monuments. The
magnificent renaissance Town Hall is the finest example. Poznan has the
population of over 600 thousand and is one of the main cultural and scientific
centres of Poland with almost 40 thousand students in 11 university-level
schools. Worth mentioning is, that food and drinks are not bad there....
