Not even close to the old town of Torun in terms of attractiveness, but it's nice for some leisure walks and sightseeing. Interesting clock can be found on the main square showing the Bydgoszcz zone time (which is not official but linked to the geographical location of the city on the 18th meridian - it differs 12 minutes from the CET).

A nicely kept place.
Pay attention to Twardowski which shows up in the window twice a day. And to 18th meridian.

We never thought Bydgoszcz has such a nice old town, well, we never thought Bydgszcz has an old town at all, we rather associated this city with post-industrial landscape. It turns out the old town, called sometimes as location town, has a lot to offer, in terms of heritage buidings, museums, and great landscapes along the water system, which is build around Brda river. Obviously the market square, with huge Monument to Struggle and Martyrdom in Bydgoszcz (Pomnik Walki i Meczenstwa Ziemi Bydgoskiej) is the centre of it all, but I would strongly recommend a visit to Wyspa Młyńska (Mill's Island) in first place, as it seems to be the top spot, especially for live outdoor events. Many old building were refurbished recently, so it all lookes very nice indeed.

We were so lucky that my husband's host booked us in a hotel overlooking the main square. Our room has a beautiful view of the square and I enjoyed simply watching people enjoying themselves. I also enjoyed walking around, visiting the impressive cathedral which is located so close to the main square. Dluga Street is a pleasant place to go strolling or shopping.

Bydgoszcz Old Town is a charming part of the city and on first impressions seems relatively small but actually covers quite a wide expanse including the areas around the Old Market Square and Brda River. The most notable sights are the St Martin and St Nicholas Cathedral and the Old Granaries as well as other attractions to be seen. The Old Town is a must see whilst in Bydgoszcz and is worth exploring to discover it's highlights.

The old town is small, just several streets. It is very clean and tourists would love it. One should not visit Bydgoszcz for its Old Town, but once in the city, it is a must attraction.

I flew into Bydgoszcz because I wanted to visit Poznan, and that was the most convenient way. The town is very lovely, as is the main square. Definitely worth a day or two.

The old town square is under construction now but anyway even if it is open, this old town is no big difference with what you can see in Warsaw/Krakow/Lublin. Personally I don’t like the idea of getting everything renovated in the old town area, it just kills the nostalgic feeling it should offer.
