Overall impression

One of the cleanest cities in Poland, Poznan is very beautiful and has rich history. Walking in the city centre is a pure pleasure. It is very calm and quiet. There aren't many IT companies, though allegro comes from this city.
Proximity to the sea: The nearest seacoast is far away, one may get there by plane only. However, there are lots of local lakes

Attitude to foreigners

Young and middle-aged are very nice. Older people may not be friendly, however they are not rude.

Impression of local population

A little bit reserved, but friendly and helpful. Older people are not very friendly if they hear Russian accent.


High humidity all year round, almost no snow in winter.


Many universities

Quality of medicine (quality and cost)

Private medicine is quite good, state medicine is too bureaucratic.

Language (learning of the local language and communication with the local people)

There are many Polish courses for foreigners, and it is possible to find Russian-speaking teachers.

Transport (road access, quality of roads, level of driving, gasoline cost, public transportation)

The roads are in good condition. Secondary roads are not perfect, but there are no holes. The culture of driving is very high. Gasoline is more expensive than in Ukraine, but is cheaper than in Germany.
Travelling abroad: Schengen Area.

Prices (cost of living, food, entertainment)

Food is better and cheaper than in Ukraine, entertainment is more expensive.

Job (search complexity, level of salary)

It's harder to find a job here than in Warsaw or Wroclaw. Salaries are almost the same as in Kharkov, probably a bit lower.

Housing (cost, availability, rent, purchase)

Accommodation rent is around 1000 zlotych per month. It is possible to find a house at otodom.pl.


Crime level is low, although drunk students may roam at night. However, they are not aggressive.

Internet access (availability, price)

4G Internet is of a high quality. It is more profitable than wired Internet, and is just a bit more expensive than in Ukraine.

The region's economy (crisis, inflation)

No signs of crisis, economy is on the rise.
