Erasmus Experience in Poznan, Poland by Alvaro

Why did you choose to go to Poznan, Poland?

Basically, because it is very cheap to live there and because the people there normally speak English.


What is the student lifestyle like in Poland?

There are loads of students from all over the world, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Turkey and of course, Poland.

Would you recommend the city and the University of Poznan to other students?

Of course, choosing Poland was a hit.

What is the food like?

Personally, I don't like it a lot. The meat doesn't have much flavour and the fish isn't fresh. However, the pierogies (Polish dumplings) are really good.


Did it cost you to find accommodation in Poznan?

Not at all. I lived in my university's halls.

How much does it cost to live in Poland?

It's very cheap compared to Spain. A month of accommodation costs around 80 euros and you can eat for 3 euros in a lot of places.

Is the language easy to get to grips with? Are there language courses available at the university?

Polish is impossible. Luckily, a lot of people speak English (not everyone, mainly younger people).

What is the cheapest way to travel to Poznan from your city?

From Bilbao to Berlin by plane and Berlin to Poznan by coach (Polskibus)

Where would you recommend to go on a night out in Poznan?

SQ, Pacha, Cubalibre, Opcja, there are loads of places to go out.

Is it good to eat out in Poland? Can you tell us your favourite spots?

Manekin (a place to get crepes, sweets and salads, very cheap) and Chatka Babuni.


What good cultural sites are there to visit?

The Old Town Plaza, and its surrounding areas.

What advice would you give to future students heading to Poznan?

It's cheap, university is good (and easy) and there are lots of parties. What more could you want?
