Town Square - Old Town, Torun

4.8
Birthplace of astronomer Nicolaus Copernicus, Town Square - Old Town represents one of the "Seven Wonders of Poland" and a World Heritage Site. Much of the architecture dates back to the medieval era, with well-preserved monuments including the leaning tower on the city walls, Gothic cathedrals, the ruins of a 13th-century castle, and the old town hall, just to name a few. Look for a yellow house topped with a star. Both the interior and exterior feature rich decoration that are worth closer inspection.

  • I thin kit is worth the stop in this town for a day. Read up on the achievements of Copernicus and enjoy the quaint brick construction of the old town that did not suffer WWII destruction.  more »
  • The city that was the birthplace of Nicolaus Copernicus, is a jewel, the walls are well preserved with their charms and cobbled streets. The Center is full of clubs, shacks selling souvenirs and flowers. Very clean, offers interesting views for lovers of photography. Have fun to watch with the upturned nose, to find the various statues that face by ravines or from the Windows of buildings.
