Torun/Thorn is a majestic city located along the Vistula River. Access to Torun is very easy via new and modern trains and an airport just outside the city. Furthermore, there are plenty for hotels close to the historical bit of the town. My partner and I have visited a number of museums, gallery’s, ginger bread shops and other historical buildings....

Not the most amazing town square I visited in Poland, but its OK. It had nice lighting and gets some extra points for a few statues around it.

Center of bustling area. Everything is so old. Not turned to rubble by Nazi's. Right where Nicolas Kopernicus place is. Tons to do nearby. Well worth the visit.

I was really impressed with Torun. Had no knowledge of it before we came to visit the gingerbread tour. Left the town after really blown away. Beautiful old town with some really nice old architecture.

We had a couple of very lovely days in Torun. Pretty much everything is about Copernicus or ginger bread. Amazing scenery with all these old buildings. Absolutely worth a short trip for people interested in history !

The lively town square and associated buildings give a feeling for what a town like this once was. There are plenty of dining venues and strolling opportunities.

It is different compared to other Polish cities' old towns, but that makes it special. It has lots of streets with ancient buildings instead of just one market square, which is nice, being Szeroka and Rynek Staromiejski the prettiest for a walk. Busier during weekdays because of the restaurants, stores and school groups touring around. Loved the copernicus' monument.
