GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT POZNAŃ

Poznań is the capital of the province of Greater Poland . City has about 600, 000 inhabitants and lies in north-western Poland. The capital of the most affluent province of the country, with flourishing agriculture and industry, inhabited by over three million people. Poznań lies half way between Berlin and Warsaw. It links East and West
In the oldest section of the city Ostrów Tumski Poland itself had its origin. It is there, in the 
Cathedral’s Golden Chapel, that we pay homage to the first rulers of Poland.

 

Here, in Poznań, history has repeatedly had its course accelerated. In the 1980’s, the rise of the Solidarity movement changed the course of events during the last two decades of the 20th century and as a result the two parts of the European continent divided by the "Iron Curtain" have merged again. After the downfall of communism in 1989, inhabitants of Greater Poland returned to their traditions of democracy, self-government, the free market, commerce and private ownership.
The people of Poznań value tradition but they also learn quickly and are open to the world. That favourable mixture of characteristics won approval of a group of independent experts from the Empirica Institute of Bonn and of the "Wirtschaftswoche" weekly, who counted Poznań among the cities with the most potential for business investors. On a list of 150 cities from Central and Eastern Europe, Poznań ranked as high as fifth. Similarly, the latest report of the national Institute for Economic and Developmental Research brings information that, after Warsaw, Poznań is the second most investment-friendly Polish city.

Marketing works best in Poznań. The receptivity of the market, favourable public attitude and infrastructure put the city right behind Warsaw, while slightly lower wages and lower real estate prices compared with those at the capital are additional trump cards for investors and entrepreneurs.
The city owes its high position to the International Trade Fair, commercial exchanges, banks, modern companies, universities as well as the quality of labour market and political stability of the local populace which are higher here than in other regions.
Poznań is the commercial capital of Poland. The Poznań International Fair successfully competes with exhibitions in Leipzig, Hanover, and Milan as the rising markets of Central and Eastern Europe entice business people from all over the world. Forty specialised exhibitions, salons, and meetings take place annually on the PIF exhibition grounds.
Even at the turn of the 1980’s, during the period of galloping inflation, the people of Poznań resolved to take matters into their own hands.

It was their initiative that led the way to the development of trade and commerce, and laid the foundations of many modern companies.

The city is a member of the World Trade Centers Association. Presently, there are 73 000 private companies here. Poznań merchants successfully compete for customers with foreign chain stores present on the market. Within two years (1997 - 1999) the value of foreign capital invested in the city doubled to the level of 1.6 billion US dollars. The majority of it has been allocated by such firms as Glaxo - SmithKline, Reemtsma, Alcatel Teletra SA, Nestle, Bestfoods, Volkswagen.

Poznań is a research and university centre with a dynamic potential. 120 000 students are enrolled in 19 state run and private institutions of higher education here. The largest of them is the Adam Mickiewicz University, whose student body numbered 14 000 at the beginning of the 90’s. Today every other student in the city receives his or her education there. "At the turn of the century our University community does not have to open its doors to Europe," says the UAM Rector, Prof. Stefan Jurga, "We have been associated with European universities since the sixties. Now it is new sources of funding for science that are opening up these days. Thanks to them, in partnership with the Viadrina European University of Frankfurt on the Main, we have co-established Collegium Polonicum in Słubice a jointly operated institution devoted to research and education."
The construction of a new university campus is under way in Morasko, on Poznań’s city border. It is located in the vicinity of a natural reserve where a large meteorite shower once fell. Scattered over the forested area, the scenic craters from 5,000 years ago are currently under water.
This, however, is not an end to the University’s "cosmic" episodes. Posnania is the name of the only planetoid discovered by Polish scientists, Poznań astronomers from the UAM, to boot. It has again become the object of study of an international group of scientists. "Now we can view our planetoid on the Internet" says Prof. Tadeusz Michałowski of the UAM Astronomical Observatory.

The diplomas of the Karol Marcinkowski Medical Academy in Poznań are held in high regard all over the world. Students of its English language medical department come from many countries, including the United States. The construction of the new facility to house the Dentistry Department has been initiated to further scientific research and provide students with better conditions for study. Graduates from the Academy of Economics win contests for prestigious positions in international corporations.
Private institutions of higher education which operate in Poznań, include foreign language colleges, art schools and schools training future bankers, economists, marketing specialists, political scientists, and journalists.

The POZNAŃSKI OŚRODEK NAUKI (POZNAŃ INSTITUTE OF SCIENCE) is the focal point of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Poznań. The Organic Chemistry Institute located there along with other scientific research centres conducts inter-disciplinary studies in the fields of structural chemistry, molecular biology, and genetics. Work on the structure of human genes involved in tumour formation, and pharmaceutical utilisation of transgenic plants are only a few of the interdisciplinary research projects which are being carried out by teams of scientists from 12 institutes under the direction of Professor Wojciech T. Markiewicz.
A scientific institution, which knows no barriers or borders, is a fitting description of the Poznań Supercomputer and Networking Centre (PSNC), affiliated with the Polish Academy of Sciences. It operates the Pionier (Polish Optical Internet) broadband network. The PIONIER Network has optical international links to research and education networks such neighbouring countries as Germany, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Ukraine, Bielarus, Lithuania and Russia. For the benefits of the European co-operation it provides international connectivity to the pan-European network GÉANT through 10 Gb/s Ethernet and 10 Gb/s Packet over Sonet direct connections between the PIONIER Network and GÉANT PoP in Poznan.

Moreover, two 2.5 Gb/s links provide general Internet access for the whole academic community in Poland. The PIONIER Network offers data transmission with guaranteed quality of service and virtual private networks enabling the usage of advanced applications and services.Many foreigners are envious of the wide-band access available at Polish universities but the real resource is the enthusiasm of talented, open-minded young people, who are both capable and willing to catch up with the world. One of the areas of study at the Centre is the new generation Internet.

The arts in Poznań “a city of commerce, business and science” have always played a special role. The University Auditorium counts among concert halls in Europe with the best acoustics. Only in recent years did it host such musical giants as Yehudi Mennuhin, Krystian Zimmerman, and Claudio Abbado. The "Amadeus" Chamber Orchestra under the direction of Agnieszka Duczmal, the "Poznań Nightingales" Boys’ and Men’s Choir, conducted by Stefan Stuligrosz, and the "Polish Nightingales" Boys’ Choir, formerly under the direction of Jerzy Kurczewski (currently Wojciech Krolopp) - are ensembles that perform at concert halls all around the globe. Music connoisseurs all over the world are familiar with the Henryk Wieniawski Violin and Violin Making Competition, the Poznań Musical Spring, and international jazz festivals.

Every theatre buff will find something of interest in Poznań: musicals at the Teatr Muzyczny (Music Theatre), and "Der Ring des Nibelungen" at the Teatr Wielki (Grand Theatre). The Teatr Polski (Polish Theatre) and Teatr Nowy (New Theatre) feature a dramatic repertoire of classical and modern plays. Alternative theatre productions by the Teatr Ósmego Dnia (Eighth Day Theatre) and Teatr Biuro Podróży (Travel Agency Theatre) attract audiences from all over Poland unless the ensembles are away on artistic tours. And on top of all that, late every June, during the "Malta" International Theatre Festival, Poznań gets in the throes of theatrical frenzy.

Art connoisseurs will find a lot to choose from in 50 professional art galleries. Many works of art have originated at the Art Academy, whose teaching staff includes leading Polish artists. The International Art Centre draws vanguard artists from far and wide.

Comprehensive information about the city, its living conditions and leisure activities is provided for the visitors by the CITY INFORMATION CENTRE (CENTRUM INFORMACJI MIEJSKIEJ), ul. Ratajczaka 44 (at the historical Arcadia building), e-mail: cim@man.poznan.pl.
