We chose Poznań. I have never been to Poznań and after an online search I decided that it would be fine for a short trip. It would be my second time to Poland, after many many years. We left early in the morning and after 3 hours we were there. The train wasn't thaaaat fast.
Our hotel was very pretty. It was renovated and beautifully furnished. It smelled of wood cleanliness and renovation :)

Breakfast wasn't served in the hotel, but the manager pointed out a great place where we could have our meals. It was a Palm Garden. Very exotic for the Polish climate.

and many exhibits from all over the world. Like this african symbol of fertility
In Poznań you travel mostly by tram and we were lucky enough to have a stop close to our hotel. From there you could easily get to any part of town. In a very short period of time too. We went to the Old Town and from there we just walked and walked 'till we couldn't feel our feet any more.

What I liked most in Poznań though, was the Old Brewery. These days it's a shopping, art and business center. This huge building is simply wonderful. Although my hands were freezing, I couldn't stop taking pictures of it. If you like you can read more about the history of this beautiful building.
Here is a small sample :)

I wish the photos were better. But there are plenty of them on the web if you're interested.
