Poland unforgettable memories

Selected Attraction

Toruń

Listed on the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites since 1997, Toruń is known as the city of Kopernik, students and... cookies. The place where Mikołaj Kopernik was living. He was the astronomer who "stopped the sun" and made the world believe that it is the Earth which goes around the sun, not the opposite. Now the astronomical tradition is continued and the University of Toruń is the Polish centre of this scientific discipline. Known for its nice atmosphere, the city is inhabited by a lot of students what makes the local society really young. It is especially visible in the beautifully renovated old town, where many of them meet, spending their time in the open air during the day and later in the pubs which are placed in almost every basement of the old tenement houses surrounding the central square. There is also one specific reason the flocks of tourists come to Toruń and its name is Toruń gingerbread cookies. Being produced for centuries, they are sold all around the city in special shops. They have various shapes and a very special taste which obliges every stranger to check it.
