Welcome to Toruń


Beyond architecture, Toruń is also well-known as the birthplace of Nicolaus Copernicus (1473–1543). His name (Mikołaj Kopernik in Polish) is all over the town, and you can even buy gingerbread shaped in his image. This other Toruń icon – its pierniki (gingerbread) – is famous across Poland.

Walking city tour in Torun

Start your tour in the hearth of Torun – Rynek (Main Square). In the middle of the square you will find a Gothic town hall, which houses town museum. Inside you may see rich collection of sculptures, paintings and stained glass. We strongly recommend you to climb the tower (extra paid) to admire gorgeous panorama of Torun and the Vistula river. In front of the entrance there is a bronze statue of Mikołaj Kopernik (Nicolaus Copernicus). Around the Rynek have a look at mansions of the Hansa merchants like Pod Gwiazdą or Dwór Artusa. Most of them are richly decorated and well preserved.Just next to the Main Square you will visit the Holy Spirit’s Church and Saint Mary’s Church. The second one comes from 14th century and was founded by Franciscans. You will be charmed by genuine organ from the beginning of 16th century, medieval tombstones and colourful stained glass.Afterwards you may admire the magnificent Saint John’s Cathedral. Some of the oldest elements of this enormous building date from the 13th century. Through the years this church was a religious centre for local community and was a witness of an important christian ceremonies – Mikołaj Kopernik was baptized here. Visiting the cathedral listen to the history of “Tuba Dei” – the biggest medieval bell in Poland from 1500.Passing defensive walls and several towers like Sailor’s Gate or Bridge Gate you will reach ruins of the Teutonic Knights’ castle – the headquarters of the Commander on the right Vistula bank.In the newer part of historical Torun –  Nowe Miasto you will see representative commercial residence like pharmacy with a golden lion, “Pod Modrym Fartuchem” inn. Another historical object is former church of the Holy Trinity (now functioned as a gallery) and Saint James’s Church.
