This article is the result of preliminary phase of research on transnationalism conducted by author from 2008. It focuses on adaptation of German-transmigrants, who migrated recently to Great Poland, especially Poznan city. As a result of cultural compromises, migrants work out new life styles. Since most Germans in Poznan live temporarily, the changes made to their cultural patterns are limited to necessary minimum. However it doesn't mean that Germans aim at the isolation from Poles and their culture, and focus only on their individual goals. Migrants are usually very interested in what they find upon their arrival to Poland. During their stay they verify popular stereotypes about Poles and make new observations. They can very well relate themselves to Polish reality and use its most interesting or attractive elements in the adaptation process.
