Our accommodations in Poznan, Poland are quite comfortable. Thanks to Everett and Rhonda Tustin for graciously opening up their guest flat to us. The buildings here were built at the turn of the century, the last century, around 1908. In a few more months the buildings will be over 100 years old. They’ve seen a lot of history in those years. The building next door (on the left in the picture) has machine gun pock marks from World War 2 scattered up the outside walls. Down the street is the Teatr Nowy im. Tadeusza Łomnickiego, a very famous Polish Theatre.
Inside the apartment building are four floors of large flats with high ceilings. After opening the door with the right jostle of a skeleton key you will see that the ceilings are adorned with elaborate craftsmanship original to the building and quaint balconies that overlook a part of the city.
