One of the best town squares in Poland! I love being surrounded by brick buildings and cathedral in a gothic style and if you are a person who shares the same preferences, this would be the place for you!

It's a picturesque square to have a walk and have a picture of this town. There is an opportunity to observe the whole city from the town hall.

It's a small square but with many things to see there. I really enjoyed looking for some statues and reading about them. Furthermore the buildings are amazing and with a lot of history.

Good place for 3-4 hours of walking. In the city of Copernicus you will find perfect examples od gothic architectures. Churches and houses made of red brick create a specific atmosphere in this student's city.

I simply love mideaval old towns and Toruń is a perfect example of it. Quiet, stylish, no honking cars. Yet bear in mind the bricks can be slippery in cold seasons, but it looks marvellous in snow.

Torun has a really nice old town, well worth spending a day in. You can take a lovely stroll through the town passing by bakeries and historic landmarks, or walk along the water.

Very pretty medieval gothic town - sometime it felt like in medieval Italian towns - but in northern-gothic version.
