Last month I visited Poznan, Poland with my boyfriend on a short weekend break from Berlin. The city, on the western side of Poland, is one of Poland’s more historical ones. And the Poznan Cathedral (located on Cathedral Island) is generally regarded as the oldest in Poland, making this one of Poland’s oldest cities as well.

But we weren’t in Poznan for the history. On a weekend break, we just wanted to enjoy the little sights and things to do in the city, so our time was spent mostly wandering the city streets and taking photos. And taking in the culture (ie, eating pierogies). I’ll share more about the things we did in Poznan, but in the meantime, I wanted to share some photos of the colorful city that is Poznan, Poland. I wasn’t expecting the city to be so “bright” but colors definitely shone through the Polish city.
