Toruń is a truly magical place, visited by 2mln tourists annually, offering something to discovery even for the most sophisticated tourists. By many called the “Krakow of the North”. Just dare a stroll along the charming, medieval streets to discover masterpieces of architecture and design. Beware, though, that you are likely to fall in love with this enchanted place, nearly untouched since the Copernicus himself dwelled there.

The city was founded by the Teutonic knights at the time of Prussian empire. Currently, the city is inhabited by 203 thousand people and seats the regional government of the Kuiavia-Pomeranian Voivodeship. It is also one of the most important centres of culture, science, research and economy in Poland, with several universities, just to mention the oldest and largest in the northern part of the country Nicolaus Copernicus University.

The most renowned citizen of Toruń is surely no other than Nicolaus Copernicus himself! His house is open to visitors and his works have been continuous inspiration to scientists of many fields. The Nicolaus Copernicus Astronomical Observatory is the largest of the kind, not only in Poland but Central and Eastern Europe, home to the most modern and largest in the country radio-telescope (32m in diameter), fully modernized 90cm catadioptric Schmidt-Cassegrain’s telescope and historic Draper’s telescope. A must-see is also the Planetarium, which offers not only a starry sky, a peep through the milky way, into the Saturn’s ringsbut also a trip to distant galaxies,. All there, for us, to admire.

Another unique feature of the city is the Gingerbread Museum, offering a joyful journey into the history of gingerbread making (with a putting-hands-on option). These delicious cakes are appreciated for its flavour and artistic shape by young and old alike.

It is impossible to name all that Toruń has to offer, so come and experience it yourself!
