I loved this area of Turun'. So many old buildings to explore, many of which had plaques on them (in English, too) describing their significance. The medieval part of the town is a World Heritage Sight (1997) and despite the tourists and souvenir kiosks gives you a sense of 13th - 14th century scenes.

This one of the best squares we have visited. Lovely ambience, great architecture. Plenty of good eating places and then of course there's the town hall in the middle.

Old Town of Torun is a perfect place for a one day tour. It is relatively compact, well renovated and well marked. You will enjoy the atmosphere of a place and quickly feel like back to 15th century. The leading topic of a place is turning around famous inhabintat of Torun - Nicoluasu Copernicus ( Mikołaj Kopernik ) and you... More

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!

Torun boasts with three different attractions: New Town, Old Town, both historic, just differing in the centuries they've been built in and the Teutonic castle. The Old Town is cozy and very pictureque, you feel as if you've stepped into a fairy tale about merchants. Majestic official buildings and cute shops stand side by side. Make sure to buy some...

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.
