The apartment Apartamenty Pomaranczarnia is huge with two bedrooms, a kitchen, a long hall and a modern bathroom. The only thing negative (?) is that it is on the third floor without a lift, but compared with a regular hotel room, this is a much better place.
What impressed me most in Poznan:
1) Stary Rynek or Old Market Square – It is one of the most beautiful plazas in Poland. It has several colorful buildings with four fountains representing Apollo, Poseidon, Mars and the kidnapping of Prosperine. At 12 o'clock you can see the two steel goats banging their heads in the City Hall clock. This is the symbol of Poznan. There are many restaurants and bars to compliment the splendor of the plaza and they are not too expensive. Poznan's tourist attraction is centered in this old market square specially when the clock strikes 12 at noon.
3) Palmiarnia Palm House – It has 17,000 plants of 700 species from warm water
and hot climates. The giant ferns and cactus collection with some animal species,
with ice cream topping. Simply delicious!
7) The funny bike ride.
Old Marych is a fictitious citizen of Poznan created by actor Marian Pogasz in a successful and very popular radio program from 1983 till 1999 when the actor died. The programs were short stories told in a special local accent. They were spicy comments on life that Old Marych saw while going to work on his bicycle, observing people and sometimes commenting on the political situation of his times.When you look into the face of Old Marych you will see the face of Mr. Pogasz. (Taken from the web, but I cannot remember from where).
And this is just part of our trip to Poland!
