Visit Torun

Established in the early 13th century, Torun has often been considered the most modern city in its region throughout time. It has always had a melting pot of a society where various cultures, religions, and ethnicities have come together and lived in harmony. It has been part of Prussian, Poland, and Germany over the past few generations.

Torun was one of the few Polish cities to escape damage during the second world war. The Old Town is completely intact and is definitely worth the investment of a day’s exploration.

There are nearly a dozen major museums that document the history and culture of the region that worth exploring as well. If you can only see a couple of them, the Traveler’s Museum is dedicated to the countries that writer Tony Halik visited over his lifetime. The House of Kopernik celebrates the life and work of Nicolaus Copernicus while exploring the academic past of the region.

An astronomical observatory and a planetarium are available to visit during a visit to Torun as well. The observatory, which is just a short trip away in Piwnice, has the largest radio telescope in that port of Europe.

And then one cannot visit Torun without trying the gingerbread there at least once. It’s a type of pierniki that is often shaped into an elaborate work of culinary art. The Piernika Museum is the only one dedicated to gingerbread that you’ll find anywhere in Europe.

Torun is a beautiful city, steeped in history, that offers a unique chance to get out and explore. With so much to do, you may find that multiple holidays are required to fully enjoy all that this community can offer.

Visit Poland

Poland offers beautiful views of the Baltic Sea. It has faced challenging times throughout its history, but that has helped the country become one of the strongest members of Europe.

It is a deeply religious nation, which means many of the most important public holidays coincide with the Catholic calendar. Festivals that involve Epiphany, Easter, and Pentecost allow visitors to explore local flavors and customs. Each community tends to have a festival for their patron saint as well, which offers an opportunity to enjoy this culture throughout the year.

The countryside of Poland is relatively untouched compared to other European nations. You’ll find forests, beautiful valleys, and towering mountain ranges to explore. Trails for hiking, cycling, and horseback riding are readily available.

You can even explore the oldest salt mine in the world, which has been in continuous operation since the 13th century. Enjoy some local gingerbread, relax in a Gothic city, or get acquainted with the Renaissance. The choice is up to you.

The history of Poland has created a unique culture of museums and galleries that let visitors know even more about the people of this great nation and its landscapes. You’ll find infamous locations to explore, such as Auschwitz, along with the unspoiled beauty of a woodland like Bialowieza National Park.

Poland really is a one-of-a-kind experience.

From the world heritage sites in Warsaw and Cracow to the hard-working cities of Gdansk and Poznan, Poland offers something for everyone to enjoy. Wide parks, open seas, and inviting mountains are mixed with the castles and cathedrals to create a memorable holiday. Make your way here and you will not be disappointed.
