It is a statue on the town square surrounded by terrances at summer and pigeons at winter. Like said, it is just a statue.

This monument is really the center of the town. This is where you can see many excursions meeting. From here it is close to any other tourist attraction in Toruń. This is also the place where once a year you can see the lights festival.

Large statue in front of the Town Hall. Torun must be so proud of having the birth place of Nicholas Copernicus.

If you come to Torun, you have to have the picture of this monument; this is where people meet and probably one of the most famous landmarks in town. Be patient to get a good picture since it is normally quite crowded and busy.

A monument of Copernicus was erected in central place of Torun, just in front of the town hall. A famous astrononer born in Torun who moved the Earth and stopped the Sun and the sky - as we say in Poland. We were lucky enough to be there on a day of some student feast and on such days the... More

The monument is located right in front of the Old Town Hall and it's a very popular spot to take pictures. So it seems to be always crowded. But it's location is great and it is definitely worths seeing while in the square.

The statue itself is very nice & a must see. If you go on or are part of a tour the story of the man is far more interesting

The statue is OK, as far as statues go. Not especially beautiful, but the old master certainly deserves one.

Monument of Nicolaus Copernicus is an obligatory place to visit in Old Town of Toruń. It is located just in the centre of old square so you can not miss it. Please be ready to wait a bit as usually you will find people lining there. You cannot leave Toruń without picture taken there with the scientist that change our... More
