What is it like to live in Poznan? Would you recommend it? What is the city like?

I definitely recommend Poznan. It's a perfect place to study! It's easy to move around in the city because of the public transport, and you can find in one place all the best places to spend time —in the city centre.


What is the student lifestyle like in Poznan?

Poznan offers many types of entertainment for students. Students here like to spend time going out and there are many places you can choose.

How much does it cost to live in Poznan?

The accommodation is not so cheap. To rent a single room in good localization and good conditions you need to pay around 600 zl (around 140 €). The monthly ticket for public transport costs around 50 zl (12 € approximately), but it's better to buy a semestral ticket, what gives you 1 month for free. If you want to go out and eat out from time to time, your monthly bugdet should be around 1000-1200 zl (around 230-280 €), with housing included of course.

Is it difficult to find accommodation in Poznan? Is there any advice you can give?

It's not hard to find a flat in general, but if you're looking for something close to tram station or in the city centre, you should start to search about 1-2 months before you want to rent a room! The most popular website with housing offers is Gumtree.pl.

What is the food like? What are your favourite dishes?

The food is like everywhere. There are many types of restaurants with different kind of food, also with typical Polish or regional dishes.

What places would you recommend visiting in Poznan?

I recommend Malta lake, Cytadela park, Old Town, Lech Stadium and during the summer Kontenery, by Warta river.

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

Manekin is the best place to eat pancakes. It's very cheap and delicious! But, be ready for long lines and waiting for a table.

Another place is Bar a Boo, also a cheap one, serving traditional Italian pizza. And finally, you definitely need to eat at Chatka Babuni and order typical Polish pierogi!

Is the nightlife good in Poznan? Where is good to go?

Poznan is perfect for nightlife. There are plenty of bars where you can drink a shot before a party, paying only 4 zl (around 0. 90 €)! Later you can go to one of many good clubs, for example SQ Club, Czekolada, LAB, Cuba Libre or even Pacha Poznan!

What advice would you give future students heading to Poznan?

Keep calm and come to Poznan city know-how!
