Answer : Because my friend, Rafal was from there and Candice wanted to go there so bad because the Renaissance architecture is just stunningly beautiful. Just look at the Old Town. It's quiet because it's winter, people always find shelter for warmth.
So we didn't end up with meeting Rafal because he had an exam in Berlin to be attended. We also didn't have enough time to explore the whole city of Poznan. We only made it to the Old Town and the Ostrow Tumski. The Ostrow Tumski was huge and time wasn't sufficient to walk around. It was almost time to board the train so we rushed back to the Railway Station. On the way back to the Railway Station, we saw some really cool palace-like buildings and beautiful monuments but unfortunately, time was running out.
On train we met with Wojtek, who's a medical student in Gdansk. He was back to Poznan for study week. The next day was his exam on Chemistry. But we chatted the whole night with pauses in between for him to study and smoke. LOL. A nice guy and a cheeky one.
