We enjoyed exploring Torun's Old Town for a few hours in one late afternoon and evening, and it was an enchanting experience. One of the standout attractions is the Old Town Hall, a magnificent building with Gothic architecture that's been around since the 14th century. We discovered that it's now a museum.
While exploring the old town, we were captivated by the charming and colorful facades of the buildings that surrounded us. We loved getting lost in the narrow, cozy streets and discovering delightful cafes and restaurants.
We also visited the Copernicus House, the birthplace of Nicolaus Copernicus, who proposed the heliocentric theory that the sun is at the center of the solar system. This museum was an excellent opportunity to learn about his fascinating life and work.
Finally, the Old City Walls are a fascinating reminder of Torun's rich history. The walls date back to the 13th and 14th centuries when they were built to protect the town from invading armies. Despite the passage of time, visitors can still see parts of the walls and gates that have been restored and preserved.
Overall, we loved our visit to the old town of Torun. We highly recommend taking a stroll through this charming area, especially during the late afternoon and evening when the buildings and monuments are illuminated, creating a magical atmosphere.
