Description

Travel back in time and explore the charming old city of Toruń on the banks of the River Vistula. With easy pick-ups from the Tri-City towns of Gdańsk, Sopot, and Gdynia, you will drive south to see all the most significant monuments of the UNESCO World Heritage Site. Upon arrival, a guide will meet you to lead you through the Old Town, starting with the Leaning Tower, part of the city’s medieval walls. Left undamaged by World War II, the Old Town of Toruń was inscribed by UNESCO in 1997 for its largely intact medieval street plan and outstanding buildings. You will also explore the adjacent New Town, founded in 1264 and amalgamated into the Hanseatic League 12 years later. Admire the red-brick merchant houses and Gothic spires of churches, such as the late Gothic Church of St. James. Go to the ruins of the Castle of the Teutonic Order, destroyed by the town’s residents in 1454. Step into the house where Nicolaus Copernicus was born, and learn about his life and work in astronomy, continued at the Planetarium. Finally, sample some of Toruń’s famous gingerbread, baked according to a 16th-century recipe.
