Poznan lies on the Warta River in Western Polska, under three hours by train from Berlin. Poznan is approximately halfway between Bydgoszcz and Wroclaw.
Outside the Central Station to the west is the Trade Fair incorporating Sala Ziemi. The University is immediately East of the Station leading to the Stare Miasto (Old Town). Continuing eastwards across the river is the Cathedral and the Malta Lake. Two attractions are found at the eastern end of the Lake (Tram 8), an above average Indian Restaurant and the New Zoo.
North of Stare Miasto is the Park Cytadela. In addition to a display of tanks and ‘planes, this park features contempoary sculptures. Rather poignantly, the ashes of forty nine of The Fifty from Stalag Luft III are interred in the cemetery.
The Stare Miasto was rebuilt after 1945, the architectural landscape of Stary Rynek is somewhat spoiled by some 1960s constructions in the heart of the Square.
Stary Rynek contains many fine Bars and Restaurants, the streets leading off, especially to the north, feature the Best Bier Houses.
