Warsaw got ravaged by WWII, but Torun is a beautiful place that managed to survive unharmed and it just oozes charm. Lovely buidlings, church, old castle walls all combine to give the visitor a great experience. Lovely little cafes, bars and shops so it has lots to keep you interested. I loved this place and would thoroughly recommend to anyone... More

The square itself is all walking distance, but it brings the feeling of attractions every single step. Easy to miss some of the really interesting spots, but also easy to get back once notice. Buildings with different decoration style, shops with varieties in manners.

Excellent place to wander around. Steeped in history with lots of good quality bars,cafes and restaurants to choose from. It's also way off the normal English tourist track which we really liked.

Since, I know very well the Hansa Cities of Lüneburg and Lübeck in Germany (both also very attractive, but very damaged in WW2) Torún since it was totally in tact, seemed sooo historic, quite familiar, so Hanseatic and quite beautiful. On a Sunday we enjoyed looking at the Town's Museum in the Historic Town Hall, looking around Copernicus' Home and... More

We were coming back from Gdansk area and did a pit stop at Torun. I don't think Ferrari F1 have better pit stops. Lovely buildings, heartwarming details in almost every corner, delicious food shops (mouth still melting about the baked pierogi and ginger cookies) and history all around. Thought Copernicus would be the only reason to stop, but now it... More

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.
