Toruń A A A
There is no city in northern Poland that could rival Toruń - the city that has been registered on the UNESCO International Heritage List. The beauty of old gothic tenement houses, narrow and cobbled streets as well as the steeples of mediaeval churches dazzles everyone who visits the city for the first time. The special magic of Toruń can be experienced every evening. The night panorama of the old town (looking from the side of the Vistula River) is so charming that it has been named as the Seventh Miracle of Poland.
