Everyone in Toruń knows where is Copernicus Monument. It is the place where is the easiest to meet with friends and to start a party. For tourists it's interesting as a key spot for locals, and a monument which photograph will be a nice souvenir from Toruń. One of the best spots to have own Toruń's selfie ;)

A lovely statue on the old market. Nice spot to take a picture, sit on a bench and just enjoy the atmosphere. We saw it from our hotel room :D

Right in the market square this statue of Copernicus is visible from many sides. It's always quite packed with people as it is a favourite meeting spot for locals. A must see if in Torun as this city is his birth place!

In the middle of the oldtown...nice, but also not too crowded and you can feel polish atmosphere, although there are a lot of tourists

A large square in the front of the monument of Nicolas Copernicus is a lovely place to stroll around and there are plenty of bars and restaurants.

It is one of the must see places in Toruń. The city is very proud of the famous astronomer, so the monument is placed in very city center just in front of the Town Hall. It is also a meeting point, so on Friday evening there are a lot of people waiting for their friends. Just to sum up -... More

The monument is on one of the corners of the old town square. It is usually surrounded by people, mostly school children and organised groups so it is hard to take a nice photo. Monument itself is pretty nice.

Copernicus was certainly not an average man, but the statue of him that stands in the main square in his home town is exactly that: average. It sure does not stand out from the multitude of statues one will see while touring Europe. It does, however, add to the overall charm of Torun's old town, and as such should not... More

This is maybe the most beautifully chiseled statue of Nicolaus Copernicus (maybe more beautiful that that in Warsaw). Most of the times birds are resting on it. With the impressive old town bell tower behind, a picture is a must!
