Poznan or Wroclaw?

Avatar Image

I’m looking at a weekend break in April – probably three days – to either Poznan or Wroclaw. Does anyone have any thoughts on which would be the better choice for a weekend break? And any recommendations for either city?

I’ve not visited either properly (unless travelling through Poznan on a coach in the dead of night counts…) but I’ve heard lots of good things about Wroclaw.

Wroclaw is my favourite of the two (although last time I was there I was on a stag do, so I’ll need to wait a while before I’m allowed to return). Auschwitz isn’t too far away of course, but within Wroclaw I can recommend both the old town and Cathedral Island. None of the museums are that great I think – it’s more about soaking the place up.

Both cites are great. beautifull Poznan has more of a students vibes, Wrocław centre is absolutely charming.
Auchwitz is kind of far away for Wrocław but you can have a day tour there ( about 11 hrs for the all trip)
In conclusion to flip coin seems to be the best way to go about it!!!

Definitely Wroclaw which is called Wroclove as well. During spring & summer probably the best city in Poland.

Actually Wroclaw is pronounced Vroslav . I have been to both. Wroclaw is a tourist town perhaps not as much as Krakow but gets the weekend tourists. Lots of restaurants etc and boat cruises.
Poznan is a university town much much quieter. I went to Krakow, Wroclaw, Poznan and Warsaw. I am not really inot bars. I found Poznan to be friendly and more real Poland
