World Heritage Town Torun Quest:
As early as the middle of the 13th century, the Teutonic Knights built a castle in Torun, which became the base for conquering and preaching Prussia, and later became important in the Hanseatic League. Business center. Today, Torun is the best preserved medieval Gothic town in Poland. In 1997, it was listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.
(1) The former residence of Copernicus and the statue of Copernicus: Torun is the home of the famous astronomer Nicolas Copernicus during the Renaissance. These two red-brick Gothic houses are the places where Copernicus was born and lived. It has been preserved to this day and has become a must-see for every visitor to Torun. In the location of the oldest city hall in the old city, there is a bronze statue of Copernicus. I saw his left hand holding the celestial body running instrument, his right hand raised, looking straight into the distance, thoughtful, a calm look on the outside, but the brain seems to be running a precise mathematical storm.
(2) St. John's Cathedral: Copernicus was baptized here. The church was built in 1260, but it was not completed until more than 200 years later, using the classic Gothic style popular at the time of the Teutonic Knights, made of red bricks. Looking from afar, the flaming colors and huge figure in the sun stand out in the old city, which is particularly dazzling.
(3) Church of St. Mary: Built by the Franciscan monks who came to Torun in the late 14th century, it is well preserved, and is the most outstanding Gothic in addition to the City Hall and St. John's Cathedral. Architectural model. According to the rules of the Franciscans, this church has no towers. Instead, it has three small spires facing the central square of the old city. The tall and steep spires rise step by step, making it the most unique presence on the Torun skyline.
(4) New Town Plaza: The core of the new city, with a 19th-century evangelical church standing in the middle of the square.
(5) Church of the Holy Spirit: Located on the west side of the central square of the Old Town, it belongs to the late Baroque style and is extremely out of place in the surrounding red brick Gothic architecture. In fact, the Church of the Holy Spirit also reflects the history of the change of Protestant status in the city.
(6) Old Town Hall: The magnificent Gothic building that was built in the 14th century. It has undergone renovations during the Renaissance period. It has escaped the invasion of the two world wars and has stood up to the present. One of the most valuable historical monuments in the city.
(7) Torun City Wall: The castle at the junction of the Old Town of Torun and the New Town was destroyed in Poland - when the Prussian coalition defeated the Teutonic Knights, it can only be hanged in the ruins. But on the side of the edge of the ancient city of Vivas, there is a complete ancient city wall, standing on the other side of the Vistula River, and the red brick wall and the red buildings in the old city are very charming.
