Adam Mickiewicz University is situated in Poznań, the 5th largest city in Poland. Located in the West of the country, it is inhabited by 550.000 people and is recognized to be an important historic, economic, cultural and academic centre. Over 130.000 students, including those from Europe and other continets, attend courses in 28 public and private academic schools.
A stay in Poznań can also become a pretext to visit one of Poland’s most interesting cities, inextricably linked to the very beginnings of Polish statehood. It was here that Duke Mieszko the First had chosen for his borough; it was also probably where he he was baptised in 966, thereby joining the ranks of medieval European rulers. This very event is thought to have been the beginning of Polish statehood. This story, as well as many more, are told at Porta Posnania-the state of the art multimedia heritage interpretation center.
When visiting Poznań, it would be impossible to miss Stary Rynek (the Old Market Square) with its magnificent Renaissance Town Hall. Other must-see attractions are Poznań Croissant Museum, Lake Malta (one of Europe’s best and most picturesque professional regatta courses), the youngest Imperial Castle in Europe built in 1910, the Old Brewery-recognized the Best Shopping Center in the world in the medium-sized commercial buildings category in 2005 and paying a visit to one of the restaurants recommended by yellow prestigious culinary guide „Gault&Millau Poland”.
