Toruń, the Copernicus City





Toruń is one of the most beautiful cities of Poland. Located on both banks of the Vistula River, at a site of intersection of ancient trade routes, it has been propagating its traditional openness to the world for nearly 800 years.

The Gothic buildings of Toruń's Old Town, which won the designation of World Heritage Site from UNESCO in 1997, present proof of Toruń's centuries-old economic, cultural and intellectual ties with the leading cities of Europe associated in the Hanseatic League. People say: "Beautiful Toruń...".. and are perhaps right.

Because here they can witness the layout of streets of Toruń Old Town, which has not been changed for centuries, the most beautiful Polish panorama of the illuminated medieval part of the, Nicolaus Copernicus birth house – the famous son of Toruń, silent arches of the Cathedral, where the great astronomer was baptized, The Town Hall of unique beauty, whose courtyard remembers the "Toruń Mutiny" drowned in blood in 1724.

Toruń, as all cities with rich history, has its own magical places. Tourists and citizens of Toruń point at spacious Philadelphia Boulevard, whole area of the Old Town Market, and the Dream Valley hugging the Old Town. Parts of Toruń’s climate are also traditional meetings near the Rafter's Monument, playing his fiddles for the frogs and Nicolaus Copernicus, who "stopped the Sun and moved the Earth". When sightseeing in the home city of the great astronomer, hundreds of thousands of spectators find it a natural thing to attend a spectacle in the Planetarium.

The campus is about 2 km from the city centre, where most hotels are located. Free access to Internet is provided in the City Centre and in all hotels.
