One day in Toruń
Poland Day 15. The literature enticed me to Toruń with its medieval history, city walls and Gothic architecture. And yes it was all that. Problem was, I’d already been spoiled with the Old Towns in Kraków and Lublin.
I tried to reason with myself. Toruń is original as its Old Town was left basically unharmed in WW2. Its city walls are incredibly unique in this day and age. It got bonus points for its location beside the Vistula.
I just wasn’t as thrilled by it as I thought I would be.
Heading out the gate along from my hotel
Some of the city wall and one of its gates
Remnants of a Teutonic Knights castle
Good times in ye olde times
Not dissimilar from other Old Town photos in recent days

Some kind of multimedia presso about NZ!
Gingerbread is a big thing here
Not the official sign
Thingies atop a fence beside one of the old city gates
Love locks on the memorial platform to Torun’s first bridge built around 1500
Walk beside the Vistula
Poland is in drought and the Vistula is at its lowest level ever (well, since records began 225 years ago)
Distance walked: 10.5km
