We arrived at lunchtime on Friday on a flight out of Luton that only took 1 hour 45 mins. At the airport there is a bus that takes you into town but as it is only 3 miles away we jumped into a cab that took 10 mins and cost £4.50 (23 Zloty). The bus departs from line “L” Posen-Lawica to get the station Swiety-Marcin-StraBe which is 5 mins from the Hotel.
The hotel we stayed at was the NH Poznan as it is only 15 mins from Parkrun and 10 mins from the start/finish and expo. I would highly recommend this hotel, the location was perfect, the rooms were comfortable and clean and it had a bar, restaurant and spa and free biscuits in the reception!
After checking into the hotel we headed to the expo and collected our race numbers & goodie bags. Not only did we get a new sports bag & t-shirt there was plenty of chocolates & protein bar & also 2 bottles of beer, sadly one was alcohol free but still a great bag!
After the expo we went into the stunning Old Town square for some food & drinks in one of Poland’s most interesting market squares. There is so many different bars & restaurants to choose from with lots of sides streets with more bars & restaurants to choose from that are all very well priced in comparison to England.
One of the favourite bars we went into was Ministererstwo Browaru, Ratajczaka 34, 61-816 Poznan. They was a wide selection of beers and real ales that included 10 on draft and a massive selection of bottled beers and ciders.
