Stary Rynek, Poznan

4.7
The city's historical central plaza, Stary Rynek is home to an array of colorful and interesting buildings. Established in the 11th century, it has undergone numerous transformations, including severe damage during World War II. Its reconstruction was rapid and successful, and today the large square boasts a number of fashionable bars, cafes, restaurants, and stores. Some of its most striking buildings include the Renaissance-style old town hall, weighing house, arsenal gallery, guardhouse, and the row of 16th century merchants' houses. Weather permitting, you can enjoy a Polish beer and plateful of pierogi (Polish dumplings) on one of the bustling terraces. Our Poznan trip itinerary planning website makes visiting Stary Rynek and other Poznan attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • This was our go-to hangout spot while we were in Poznan, and we regularly at lunch or dinner at one of the many great and and fairly priced restaurants around the perimeter. A lovely atmosphere in this beautiful, clean market square.
  • As all old polish city central Squares this one is not exception in its beauty. Lots great restaurants and bars to choose from with as always great polish food and tasty beers. Free parking around old Town on the weekend.
