Torun Poland

Toruń, and its medieval old town, is one of the oldest and most beautiful cities of Poland. It is located in northern Poland on the banks of the Vistula River. The gothic buildings of Toruń’s Old Town present proof of Toruń’s centuries-old economic, cultural and intellectual ties with the leading cities of Europe associated in the Hanseatic League.

Toruń‘s Old Town was added to UNESCO’s World Heritage List as a World Heritage Site in 1997 and 10 years later it was added to the list of Seven Wonders of Poland.

For your visit to Toruń, you should reserve at least 2 days. The city is a charming especially after sunset, when the souvenir sellers and most tourists disappear from the streets. Best time to visit Toruń is from May to September. During the summer, there are lots of music, theater, gingerbread and other festivals in Toruń.

    I agree, everyone who arrives in Torun should visit the family house of Nicolaus Copernicus, which is located close to Old Town Square in Copernicus Street No. 15 and 17
