“The focal point”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

For a small city off the tourist track, this is a pretty impressive Old Town square. Fortunately WW2 seemed to have left this city reasonably intact, though there has been some refurb.

Very clean and tidy everywhere. Lots of bars and restaurants. Lined withwell preserved and impressive buildings and plenty of interesting statues. Take a guide book to get the most out of this compact city.

A must see, and part of the UNESCO listed world Heritage site of Torun.

We were in Torun for 2 days and visited the square many times.

“Cute, well refurbished buildings”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

I am always surprised when there is a huge building in the middle of a town square, but that is the case both in Torun and in Krakow. The town square has the town hall building in the middle of it, and other medieval building surrounding it. They are well preserved and well worth a look.

You find a Kopernik Pierniki factory store, the Jesuit, Academic Church as well as the Asian musum among the things to see and do on the square.

“Excellent place.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

The Old Town of Torun is full of history. It has many monuments of architecture beginning from the Middle Ages. It's listed on the UNESCO list of World Heritage. It is really worth seeing it. The great astronomer Mikołaj Kopernik (Nicolaus Copernicus) was born there.
