The very green city
Poznan is one of Poland’s greenest cities not only because its tramways and buses are painted green… Green recreational areas, forests, parks, lawns and gardens cover nearly 30% of the city area. A green belt of forests surrounds the city, which is quite unusual for such a large urban centre and offer plenty of opportunities to experience the beauty of nature.
