Toruń during the pandemic ... This is what I could call this photo gallery, which was taken during a one-day drone flight in Toruń on an autumn weekend. There are very few people in the city ... In the morning there was no one or there were single people ... at noon there were some walkers and life appeared ... Toruń's old town is very beautiful, so I couldn't resist and took quite a lot of photos using this interesting low light. If someone asked me: what is worth seeing in Toruń? The answer is simple - follow Copernicus and Gingerbread :-) it will be interesting and sweet ... on the way there may appear the Toruń Dragon and the ruins of the Teutonic Castle with dungeons that can be visited, it is also worth looking at the stars in the planetarium ... and now I invite you to view photos from my drone showing Toruń - a really interesting city in Poland.
We started our tour of Toruń with a walk along the city walls from the side of the Vistula River. There is a viewpoint on the river bank, symbolized by the former wooden bridge over the Vistula.
There is the Philadelphia Boulevard on the bank of the Vistula River in Toruń. The boulevard is about 2 kilometers long and starts at the marina and ends at the railway bridge that can be seen in the distance.
A bird's eye view of Toruń - in these old towns I am always amazed by the proportions between sacred and secular buildings. There you can see a lot of gigantic churches over the roofs of houses and quite a large town hall looks so modest next to them ...
The panorama of the river and the Bridge Józef Piłsudski, 898 m long, from 1934. There is the City Beach (Błonia Nadwiślańskie) and a marina on the right bank of the river behind the bridge.
You must see in Toruń: the old town with the market square, the town hall and the Copernicus monument, the ruins of the Teutonic Castle, the planetarium, the House of Legends, the Leaning Tower, the Living Museum of Gingerbread, and the House of Nicolaus Copernicus. Toruń is a city of churches, so for those who like sacred art and visiting churches, there will be many attractions, including the headquarters of the "Father Director", that is the Redemptorist monastery and the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Perpetual Help.
The historic Church of St. Spirit in Toruń (the so-called academic church) at the Old Town Square.
Town Hall and Szeroka Street in the center of Toruń. The town hall tower is about 40 m high and there is a viewing platform on its top.
Top view of the Old Town Square (Rynek Staromiejski) and Town Hall in Toruń. Looking from this perspective, I am always amazed by the lack of symmetry and right angles ...
The Old Town Hall is the largest (44 × 52 m) and the most important secular building in the Old Town of Toruń. This magnificent gothic building was built in the 14th century. Currently, there is the District Museum in Toruń in the town hall. I think it is worth climbing this tower to see the city from above.
Szeroka Street is the most representative and main shopping street in Toruń's Old Town. On this Saturday, November and pandemic morning it was not as crowded as usual ...
I like to look straight down from above ... sometimes you can see interesting images...
New Town Market Square in Toruń - according to Wikipedia: "central point of the New Town, designed in 1264". It is a large square measuring approximately 95 × 95 m. From the 14th century, the New Town Hall was in the center of the square, which in 1668 was transformed into a Lutheran temple. The Tumult Foundation is in this building now.
One of the more interesting museums in Toruń are the ruins of the Teutonic castle and exhibitions presented in the castle dungeons. Other interesting museums are: the House of Copernicus and the Gingerbread Museum, and the Town Hall Tower, from which you can look at the city from a bird's eye view. And of course, I sincerely recommend the planetarium!
When I entered the question on Google: how many churches are there in Toruń. I received the answer: 25 ... I will calm you down - I didn't take pictures of them all :-) but this one I had to - I like such perfection in architecture.
Toruń is a very friendly city for drone pilots. There is no controlled airspace over the city, so you don't need to ask for a permit to fly, just watch out for air ambulances helicopters (HEMS) and the few small planes that have an airport in the Bielany district, on the west side of the city.
The Church of the Holy Apostles James and Philip was built in the 14th and 15th centuries and it is the smallest Gothic church in Toruń.
Incredible light, interesting mist, no wind - perfect conditions for flying and admiring the panorama of the city.
Former evangelical church ... it sounds interesting ... former church ...
Night view of the Toruń old town. Toruń is also known for its nightlife - there are many: restaurants, cafes, bars, pubs, wine bars, breweries, parties, concerts, venues with a DJ or live music ... but this pandemic must end ... and everything will come to life with redoubled strength ...
This interesting building houses the Collegium Maximum of the Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń.
Evening view of Toruń's old town. You can buy this and my other photos from Toruń and use it as a picture on a wall, calendar, advertisement, graphic on the website or any other way. If you are interested, please contact me.
Some people walk with a dog ... others with a drone :-)
The Leaning Tower is a medieval city tower in the south-west corner of the city walls. The tower is 15 meters high and its deviation from the vertical is as much as 1.46 meters.
During the "flying walk" and watching the city from a bird's perspective - at night it is rather from a bat's perspective :-) such a dark picture appeared ...
The weather was quite good for November - a few hours with beautiful sun, some clouds, not too strong wind and there was no frost! We will definitely come back to Toruń when it will be possible to enter museums, restaurants and cafes to see more and explore this amazing city.
