Torun



 

Torun is one of the most beautiful small towns of Poland. Located in northern Poland, on the banks of the Vistula River, Torun is the birthplace of Nicolaus Copernicus. Torun is famous for the well preserved medieval architecture and the original urban layout.

The red brick Old Town Hall is one
the most spectacular building in the town, with its 40 meters high tower is an excellent example of gothic secular architecture. The ruins of the Castle of the Teutonic Order remember the medieval times.
