Living in Poznan

Home to more than 600,000 people, Poznan is one of Poland's greatest metropolises. As its nickname suggests, "The Museum City" has a rich history with a number of memorable sights. Amongst these are the old Imperial Castle, which was constructed for the German emperor William II in 1910, and Ostrow Tumski, the island on the river Warta that is home to the city's cathedral and is the place Poznan was founded upon. Expats living in Poznan will most likely also enjoy a visit to the Old Town Square. Known as "Stary Rynek" to the locals, the area dates back to the ninth century, but has a modern twist due to much of it having to be rebuilt following World War Two. The square is lined with bars and cafés, making it an ideal place to meet fellow expatriates in Poznan who are also acclimatizing to life in western Poland. InterNations can assist you in dealing with the culture shock of life in Poznan. With more than one million members worldwide, the network allows expats living in Poznan to socialize, network and share information with fellow internationals.
