In addition to it, the city also studys polytechnic, medical, natural science, economics and, of course, art college.

Public transport Poznan

As in other large cities, urban transport works very well in Poznań. It is important not only for visitors but also for residents, because in the center, as everywhere else, there is a problem with parking.

In Poznań, trams provide the main transport capacity. There are a total of 19 lines, the stops are very well and clearly signposted, and the connections run on time. Trams are then complemented by buses that will take you everywhere where there are no tracks.

Transport Poznan

Thanks to its very convenient location between Berlin and Warsaw, Poznan has a very good motorway connection and offers a journey by your own car.

The fastest and also the most comfortable is, of course, air transport. The city has its own international airport, which can be found about five kilometers from the city center. From the airport to the city can be easily reached by bus, if you want more comfort and do not mind the higher price so of course a taxi.

You can also choose to travel by long-distance bus. For example, Flixbus will take you here from many European cities even without a transfer. With early booking you can get to really great prices.
