About Toruń

Toruń was founded over 750 years ago and has many UNESCO monuments. It’s the birthtown of Nicolaus Copernicus whose main work “De revolutionibus…” contained the first heliocentric theory of universe. 
The old part of the town retains its medieval character and is located along the Wisła river, well-separated from the new housing areas. The most splendid examples of Toruń’s historical architecture are: the Old City Hall (at present the city museum) and three monumental gothic churches (Sts Jones’, Our Lady’s and St. Jacob’s). Narrow old streets with their special atmosphere coexist very nicely with the Nicolaus Copernicus University which is the biggest employer in the city and has about 40,000 students, almost 1/3  of the total population of the city.
