(June 21, 2018) Poznan
This is another long journey on road of nearly 500
We'll leave Warsaw and arrive at Wroclaw to spend the night, but we'll
stop in Poznan Old Town to lunch and explore it.
We leave the apartment about 9:30 AM. No hassles on
reaching Poznan from Warsaw, as hishway A2 links both cities. This
motorway has no speed limit but, in exchange, we must stop in three
tolls in our way to pay 10, 20 and 20 zlotys. It takes a bit more than
Once in Poznan we follow the signs to “Centrum”, as we’re
doing in all cities, and soon can see the cathedral at our side. A bit

It’s a short walk until Old Market Square and Town Hall’s
beautiful building appears just in front of us, asking for cameras out.
We enjoy exploring this square, which is full of live,

After this we walk back to the car for the final ride to
Wroclaw. It’s a quite shorter drive than the previous one, but we find

It’s windy, and I can feel wind striking the car from the left,
When we leave our room in Hotel Patio, we plan to take a
walk by the limits of this big Old Town. We pass by Panorama Raclawice
building and some churches.
Then, at the North, we reach the Oder river shore, where we can get astonishing views from the other side.
We go to Piasek Island and, from there, we make our way
back to the hotel passing by the University, while the sunset is giving
us a wonderful end of the day.
