This 10-hour trip from Warsaw offers you the chance to visit one of Poland’s most architecturally rich towns with ease and efficiency. During the journey to Torun, you’ll evade the stress of public transport and travel comfortably in an air-conditioned minivan. Marvel at Torun’s Gothic tableau of churches, towers and cathedrals, and customize your tour by choosing to spend your free time in a variety of ways. Lunch and round-trip transport from Warsaw are included.
Your tour begins at your Warsaw hotel, where you’ll board an air-conditioned minivan and greet your guide and small group, limited to eight people. During a scenic drive, you’ll receive a historical overview of the medieval city from your guide.
On arrival in the heart of Turon, you’ll commence your tour in Rynek, the medieval town’s elaborate main square. Home to a Gothic town hall that harbors a rich collection of sculptures, paintings and stained glass, Rynek provides an interesting cultural tableau.
At your own expense, opt to ascend the town hall’s tower to enjoy panoramic views of Torun and the Vistula River. See, too, the bronze statue of Mikołaj Kopernik and an array of richly decorated mansions, before continuing to your next destination.
Absorb the sacred atmosphere of three religious structures: Holy Spirit’s Church, Saint Mary’s Church and St. John’s Cathedral, the earliest of which dates back to the 13th century. Delve into the history of the structures by listening to history-rich commentary.
Following a traditional Polish lunch and a tour of more historical monuments, you’ll be presented with four options to choose from. Enjoy free entrance to the Live Gingerbread Museum, Nicholas Copernicus House, the Planetarium or the Ethnographic Museum. Your guide offers an overview of each of these attractions before you choose.
After thorough exploration, return to your minivan and relax during the journey back to your Warsaw hotel, where the tour concludes.
