Toruń sightseeing will start with the most important monuments of the city. We will visit Nicolaus Copernicus monument, on which has been proudly posing for over 150 years. This monument is one of the most important landmarks in the city but not the only one. Toruń, often called Cracow of the North, is a comfortable city, because it can be walked on foot, picturesque, because the old town is centered on the banks of the Vistula, and the ruins of the Teutonic castle surrounding it adds drama and beauty. We can walk through Main Square, watch the Gothic Town Hall, which, if we believe in legends, has been built in resemblance to the calendar. Just next to the Main Square you can visit the Holy Spirit’s Church and Saint Mary’s Church. If you are a keen photographer, you can enjoy the beauty of the area from the town hall tower and make some memorable pictures. Do not forget to visit the symbolic donkey – the pillory, a monument created on the model of the seventeenth-century donkey. It served to punish rebellious soldiers.

The Teutonic Castle, which is a mandatory point of each tour in these area, were built in the 50s of the 13th century, and were completed almost 100 years later. Historians see the beginning of the thirteen-year war in here. Even if the castle doesn’t remains the one from the past, still it’s an unusual example of the old building. The guide will introduce incredible history of the castle and its settlement and the avid photographers will have the opportunity to photo register the panorama of the Old Town from the perspective of the castle tower.
