There is really no point of coming to Torun and not check out the Old Town; this is just an amazing place and just became one of my favorites in Poland if not my favorite. The atmosphere is just unique and it has lots of places to chill, have something to drink or eat…not to mention the best ice-cream in... More

It takes you back into history... Not so commercial like an old town in Gdansk, for example. Nice atmosphere ..lots of unique buildings dating back to 15-13 centuries. And if you walk around you would find some "one brand " shops with really crazy sales.

The whole area of the Old Town was atmospheric and had many fine buildings not spoiled by the numerous shops and restaurants. The streets were pedestrianised and St. Marys Church had a particularly grand interior.

This is from where most tourists start their exploration of gothic Torun. There is a reason for that. You will have your desired impression delivered.

There is always so much to do and see in the Town Square in Torun. We went up the stairs to the top of the Town Hall Tower where we could see whole Torun. There are so many cafes and restaurants there it is imposiible to try them all. I loved having that much choice. Beautiful place!

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
