Poland, Torun Guide (B): The Charming Medieval City of Torun, Poland

Given all the massive devastation Poland saw during World War II, many of the country’s old towns are now merely modern reconstructions. That’s not a criticism, simply the unfortunate truth. But I did say many and not all, which means there are several places in Poland where you get the chance to explore a beautifully preserved, still standing old town. Krakow may be the country’s best known historical city, but it finds a worthy challenger in smaller Torun.

Recommended to me through a travel forum, I hadn’t heard of the small city in northern Poland before then. It didn’t take longer after googling it to decide I wanted to visit.
