Sit under the Copernicus statue and watch parents place their children onto the the torture donkey's back...maybe this was a threat to naughty children or just stupid parents that didn't realize that the donkey has a ridge along its back used for torture?

We took a 2 hr bus trip from Gdansk to this lovely city a few months ago. Too bad it rained almost the entire time. But, what we saw was great. Highly recommend this little side trip. Very nice bus trip too.

I have visited this city twice and loved it both times. Personally I probably would not have visited this city or Poland at all if it was not for my best friend being Polish. However I did and I have seen such beautiful places because of it. The old town is so nice; it still has the square centred around... More

Toruń's old town is just one of these places that demand to be seen. It's a great example of old architecture.

The very first thing you should see in this wonderful city. Recommended to take a longer walk with an ice-cream in your hand:D

Such an unexpected surprise - stunning Torun old town had beautiful architecture, one of the best restaurants we've ever eaten at and a host of places to drink and walk. Loved it! Will definitely be returning.

Surrounded by places to eat. No problems with English. Always check where the locals go to eat. Shopping district right next to square.

The centerpiece of this medieval square is the gothic town hall, surrounded by dozens of shops and cafés, not to mention souvenir stands and flower stalls. Several statues and fountains (Copernicus is the main one) are spread out around the Rynek. The imposing 1800's concert hall, which contains a cafe on the main floor, faces the Ratuscz. It's a delightful... More

During the day, visit the museum, climb up the tower to catch a great view on the city, discover about the Hans cities and the Teutonic knights, learn about Nicolas Copernicus and the city's dragon. But do not forget to come back at night: if not for the great restaurants surrounding the square or the cocktail bars, at least for... More

Very nice place and one of the best squares. You could say it's a miniature of Cracow or Prague. Well maintained
