Poznan is a charming city but it was badly bombed during WWII. Many squares and buildings have been painstakingly rebuilt to their original splendour. Cathedral Island and the Old Town Square are the best places to start any tour of Poznan.
Stary Rynek: Poznan's old town square is one of the finest in all of Europe. This was the heart of medieval Poznan and is lined with quaint little cafes and bars. This is a great place to grab a coffee and just people watch.
Cathedral Island: This place marks the spot where the city was founded, a quiet island mostly occupied by monks, bishops and priests. To visit: St. Peter's and Paul's Cathedral, Our Lady Church, the archbishop's palace and the Psalter House.
Emperor's District: This neighbourhood is home to the Emperor's Castle, built in 1905 in neo-Romanesque style. It was the Polish president's house between the wars and was Hitler's residence during WWII. Today it is a museum, and one that's not to be missed.

Poznan is famous for its trade fairs. These of course see thousands descend on the city quite quickly. If you're after a bargain, don't book a hotel in Poznan during one of these events. Otherwise, Poznan has plenty of youth hostels and plenty of choice in the mid-range as well.
