You will begin your city tour in the heart of Torun – Rynek (Main Square). In the center of the square, you will find a Gothic Town Hall, which houses the town museum. Inside you will see a rich collection of sculptures, paintings, and stained glass. We strongly recommend climbing up the tower (extra paid) to admire a gorgeous panorama of Torun and the Vistula river. In front of the entrance, there is a bronze monument of Nicolaus Copernicus. Walking around the Main Square, you will see the mansions of the Hansa merchants, such as Pod Gwiazdą or Dwor Artusa. Most of them are richly decorated and well preserved.
Just next to the Main Square you will visit the Holy Spirit’s Church, Saint Mary’s Church, and the magnificent Saint John’s Cathedral.
Passing defensive walls and several towers like Sailor’s Gate or Bridge-Gate you will reach the ruins of the Teutonic Knights’ castle – the headquarters of the Commander on the right bank of the Vistula.
In the newer part of historical Torun – Nowe Miasto you will see representative commercial residences like a Golden Lion Pharmacy or “Pod Modrym Fartuchem” inn. Another historical object is a former Church of the Holy Trinity (now functions as a gallery) and Saint James’s Church.
