All trains coming to Poznan stop at Poznan Main Station (Poznan Główny). The railway station is composed of two buildings: the Main Station and the West Station (Dworzec Zachodni). The Main Station is located above platforms 1, 2, and 3 and is connected with the coach station, and Avenida shopping mall. The West Station is located just opposite Poznan International Fair (Międzynarodowe Targi Poznanskie). In the main station building, there are kiosks, shops, fast food restaurants, ATMs and a tourist information point. The West Station is connected with all platforms via an underground passage, including the stop for the Poznan Fast Tram (PST). To move around the city, it is worth using the jakdojade.pl application, which provides information on the departures of trams and buses. You can buy tram and bus tickets here, too. Additionally, this application works in many other cities in Poland (Warsaw, Wrocław, etc.).
