Poznan is seen by many as the birthplace of the polish nation and this is one of the many reasons why we decided to explore it during this week. We have a few days off of work and we are going to spend it exploring everything about this town steeped in history.

Poznan is among the oldest cities in Poland and is seen by many as one of the most important centers in the early Polish state in the tenth and eleventh centuries. The city center used to be in Ostrów Tumski, a natural island on the Warta river. Some people consider it very similar to the Île de la Cité in Paris but we still don’t know for sure.

Since we are arriving in the middle of Malta Festival, we have no option but to see what this is all about. But there are lots of other things to explore and see in Poznan. So many that we had to create a list on Foursquare with everything.

Below you can see a few of the places we are looking forward to see the most.

Like always, we are never sure if we are going to be able to visit it all but, at least, we have a direction.
