This tremendous medieval city is well-managed, clean, and full of museums and restaurants, and live music.

The statute was the first thing on my to-see list. A man who achieved a great success and despite many struggles proved everyone wrong by changing the perspective of astronomy. Since it's the most iconic tourist attraction in Torun, I recommend sightseeing it (as well as the entire city) before the summer time.

The statue made of bronze was unveiled over 150 years ago, in 1853. It presents great astronom- Nicolaus Copernicus in an academic robe holding an astrolabe in his left hand and pointing at the sky with his right.
Its granite plinth holds a Latin inscription: ‘Nicolaus Copernicus, from Toruń, moved the Earth and stopped the Sun and the Sky’.

Copernicus is truly the pride of the city, so they dedicated a statue to him, right in the middle of the city center,

Really cool that even the great Kopernik is wearing a mask in the time of coronavirus. Very neat. No trash around it. Obviously there were lots of tourists but that's predictable since everyone wants a 📸.

There are some incredible buildings and landmarks in the vicinity of the Old City Market Square in Toruń and one notable example is the monument to astronomer Nicolaus Copernicus. The monument was built in 1853 and stands in the shadow of the Old City Town Hall. The bronze statue of Nicolaus Copernicus stands on a granite pedestal which has a Latin inscription in gold letters which translates as Nicolaus Copernicus of Toruń. It is one of the many sights to be seen in the medieval town.

If you arrange to meet someone, this is the place known to everyone. Very popular with the tourists for obvious reasons and popular on the school trip circuit too.

This is not just a statue. It is a monument to a citizen of Torun, who became its main symbol. And he deserved it!
