I am giving a highest ranking because I believe that to others the old town will be a great experience. You can feel the middle ages' atmosphere, it's architecture is really impressing and the feel is as if tou were in Germany. However, if you travel a bit more in Poland and visit other medieval towns, Torun wouldn't seem that... More

Although we visited on the weekend of the Gingerbread festival and it was super busy it was still a very attractive place to visit. Make sure you don't ride a bike in the central area or you will be fined. We saw someone get a ticket!

I haven't been to Torun in a while. It was great to come back and once more walk around its old town. There are many old and stylish buildings with several museums, old marketplace and the city wall surrounding it all. Lots of cafes and restaurants. It all looks especially nice on a sunny morning or around sunset.

Great town sqare. One of the most beautiful city halls of the world in the middle. Best out of season, when all so 'called' restaurant gardens will disappear.

I enjoyed to walk and stroll through the town. And stopp and some restaurants. The town hall offers a tower to walk on with a... More

The square and old town is fantastic. It has been extremely well renovated over the years with its UNESCO rating. The best part is it's set on the Vistula river which has great renovated barge restaurants and boat tours. The old wall is intact with many gate way entrances to the old city.. The main square is full of outdoor... More
