A must see. That is why you came to Torun!

This is the birth place of Nicolaus Copernicus, therefore this stop and his monument is a must see! It is located in the old town square.

First time I visited Torun many years ago as a child and beside gingerbread it was the only thing I did remember from this first trip for years. :) And now again.

This statue is in the heart of the old town. It's a beautiful spot with a tower right behind it. Very pretty at night and seems like a busy central spot.

Central point of Toruń old town. In my young days (25 YA) most of the dates started here ;) Maybe it is so still now.

Torun's favorite son must see. Easily found on the town square. Too bad there is not more solid information on his achievement.

In the middle of this beautiful old city. Surrounded by nice old buildings, and don't forget the toruńskie pierniki.

It is just a statue as nice as it is! Located in the old town you can't really miss it as everyone seems to use it as a meeting point. If you visit Torun you need to go in to the old town and if you go in to the old town there it is. Take a pic and enjoy... More

In the centre of the medieval town, this is a very picturesque place. Everywhere you look there are beautiful details on the buildings around.
