This monument to Copernicus stands next to the Townhall on the Market Square is the symbol of the city. It's worth a look at, remembering how important his work was in redefining our understanding of man's place in the Universe...

Nice statue !!! It took me a while to be able to take a photo of this statue without someone standing on it. This is the must as Torun is known as Coppernicus's home.

It's the meeting place of the locals and for an Australian an amazing history lesson .Torun should be proud of Copernicus. I love this part of the old town and this is the place to have photo. Sit and enjoy a drink at one of the many restaurants and enjoy the atmosphere and views.

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
