The Stary Browar (Old Brewery) is both a shopping mall and an interesting sight.
The history of the old brewery dates back to the middle of the 19th century when it was built by Ambrosius Hugger.
In November 2003 the building complex was opened as a mall after extensive renovations.
Besides numerous shops, it is also home to many restaurants and cafes as well as an arts centre.

If you can't find something you want in this large outdoor market, well, you're just too boring. :)
From clothing to flowers to fresh meat and eggs to organic produce to knock-off perfumes to shoes to jewelry and accessories, to electronics, to antiques this market has it all! There's even tables of second-hand items- not limited to clothing. If you're really in the mood to search, many fascinating objects can be found here, including the infamous "Shoe Purse", a traveling birthday present which has been passed from one friend to another in my group!

King Cross Shopping Centre was opened on the 15th March 2005. It is the only shopping centre in the western part of the city and is located at the cross roads of Bukowska & Bulgarska Street. It is fairly typical of shopping centres in Poland with the usual array of shops, food court and a supermarket. What attached me to the shopping centre was the supermarket with its small café where you can purchase a substantial inexpensive meal for about 5zl.
The Stary Browar (Old Brewery) Shopping Mall was one of the surprise features of my trip to Poznan. The original building dates from 1844 and brewing continued on the site until 1980. Even during WW2 it continued brewing beer only stopping for a short time in 1944 when the basement was used as an air raid shelter. The building was damaged during the siege of Poznan and this reduction future output. The building gained a new lease of life in 1998 when work started on converting the building to a shopping centre. Phase 1 was completed in 2003 and Phase 2 which doubled the size of the shopping centre was completed in 2007. The building has won numerous awards including the best shopping centre in world in the medium size class and the best shopping centre in Europe. It is unusual because it is a number of buildings linked together, each giving a different feel. There is a courtyard where art events are held. This links on one side what can best be described as a typical type of long drawn out shopping centre with a cinema. On the other side of the courtyard is a circular atrium, spread out on a number of floors. All the escalators have latest clear sides so you can observe the mechanism.
Yes, for those of you who judge a civilization by the presence of designer shops Poznan is ready to meet your needs.
Guys, you may just find the phrase “przepraszam ale nie mam dosc pieniedzy”
“Sorry I don’t have enough money” useful!
What to pay: Just handover your wallet
