Poznań In Your Pocket no.50

Summer! As we release our anniversary issue, the city has already largely switched to an outdoor mode of eating, drinking, partying, and relaxing. In July and August you can take a free outdoor yoga class (p.14), enjoy films while lounging on the grass (p.14), go on a tour of the Jewish Heritage Trail (p.14), and take advantage of the many outdoor festivals (pp.15-16) taking place during this time of year. To really get a feel for the local culture, follow Poznanians to their favourite summer hang-outs, like the Social Night Market (p.50), the riverside KontenerART(p.68), and the many beer gardens (p.70) in town. For cooling off, it’s off to Lake Malta (p.40) and its many loud attractions, or the more chilled-out Lake Rusałka (p.42).

The warm season is also the perfect time to explore on foot or rickety rental bike. Our recommendations include taking a self-guided tour of Poznań’s street art (p.25), breathing in military history (or just enjoying the greenery) at Citadel Park (p.37), and checking out the narrow streets and small restaurants of Śródka (p.36). Whatever you choose to do, we hope you have a wonderful time in the city of billy goats and croissants. As always, for questions or comments don’t hesitate to contact us by e-mail at poland@inyourpocket.com or on FB.
