Medieval Town of Toruń

The origins of Torun belong to the Teutonic Order, which built a castle in the mid-13th century, which was supposed to be a base for the conquest and evangelization of Prussia. Soon it acquired a commercial role as a part of the Hanseatic League. In both part of Torun, the Old Town and the New Town, many imposing public and private buildings (including the house of Copernicus)  from the 14th and 15th centuries are notable evidence of Torun's importance. 

Torun is a spectacular human masterpiece of the creativity of the mankind.  Torun displays evidence of the multicultural contacts with the leading centres of European art, in particular large mercantile cities of northern Europe such as Bruges or Ghent.
