Beautiful old town

Charming place to take a walk, take some photos and buy an ice-cream. Try also the traditional polish gingerbread!

This atmosferic 'rynek' offers views to several impressive old buildings - Torun's most important heritage - and it's perfect to visit in the morning. The light is softer, the crowds are thinner.

Unlike Warsaw where the entire old town was decimated and rebuilt from scratch, Torun was left unharmed because the Nazis considered it a German city. The square is the heart of the old town and has water sprinklers kids enjoy during the summer months.

Torun is the best preserved gothic town in Poland. It's definitely worth visiting - town square, town hall, old churches, some old houses and museums. Trying gingerbread is a must. You can easily spend few days there. Lot of ambience, especially at night when some of the buildings are illuminated. Also a lot of good restaurants. So go and visit.... More

Beautiful place to go for a walk and enjoy some good food. We loved visiting the church, the museum in Ratusz (the kids really enjoyed the old keys and locks collection) and climbing the tower. We had a delicious, typical Polish dinner and shopped for souvenirs. Overall it was a time well spent in a beautiful old part of Torun.

Great medieval architecture! Worth to seeing! It's small and calm, not so "touristic" as Krakow. If you can go on Wednesday - all museums are free. Must see: the birdhouse of Copernicus and the Town museum with a 3D video presentation of the history of the town and Poland.

So quit so chilled A throw back to pre tech days but with all the amenities a traveller needs The whole town can be covered in a couple of hours Some building obscured by sidewalk cafes which is a pith Town should find a way better to combine commerce with heritage

The walking tour of the town is terrific. Had a very knowledgeable guide. The shops are quaint. It's nice to wander around & take in the history of Torun.
