Beautiful Bydgoszcz, located by the Brda river in central Poland, is famous for its architecture and double 'M'; meaning Medicine and Music. Inhabited by more than 360 000 people, it is still very cosy and easy to move around in, as the city bike system used here is the most popular one in the country. There's an airport with direct flights to Dublin and London, and it only takes 1.5 hours to travel to Poznan by train(and about 3 hours to Warsaw, the capital). All this makes Bydgoszcz just perfect for those who seek an inexpensive and comfortable Polish city to study medicine in.
