Travel guide to Torun

Torun-view from boulevard over Vistula River
Torun is one of Poland’s prettiest cities. Its medieval core was awarded the prestigious UNESCO World Heritage Status in 1997. The walled off city never changed its original layout. Torun preserves to a remarkable extent its original street pattern and outstanding early buildings, providing an exceptionally complete picture of the medieval way of life. buildings in Torun represent the highest achievement of medieval architecture in brick. The fact that one can also visit Copernicus’s birthplace is a bonus. At least in Poland, Torun is known for two facts. One is of course Nicolaus Copernicus (pol. Mikolaj Kopernik). The other is the honey ginger bread. Copernicus, who stopped the Sun and put the Earth in motion, was born in Torun on 19 February 1473 in a fine Gothic tenement house on Saint Anne Street, near the main square of the city. Now, the house is home to a museum dedicated to this courageous astronomer. And the street was re-named to bear his name. [edit text]  [editors]
