  • Exploring the old town also again certainly forgotten Cathedral. John the Baptist as a Gothic building is monumental and towers over the old town very nicely restored-entry is free-you have to pay to enter the tower overlooking the panoramic view of Toruń-the price is not excessive, so worth it.

  • This red brick Cathedral was rebuilt many times, the Interior is sumptuous and filled with hundreds of things to see, of beautiful stained glass, a white stars in red and blue, one of the chapels is dedicated to Copernicus with his bust in marble - the heart of King Jean I Albert would be placed below nearby - the third largest Bell in Poland (dating from 1500) Tuba dei dominates all - in the rectory an admirable () medieval crucifixion painting 1380) our guide was very useful.

  • A monumental Orthodox Cathedral. Janów is not only a luxury Interior, not only the baptismal font, in which obmywano the head of the Nicolaus Copernicus, not only sacred art. It is also the tower. The Tower, with views of the magnificent panoramic view of Toruń. Toruń has agreed to four arms Windows of the Tower lies at our feet and falls in memory and in the heart. Stairs to the beautiful are steep and winding, but the award compensates for climbing.
