We went to Frombork for the weekend in August. The weather was good, although it was a bit windy and the clouds sometimes obscured the sky. Nevertheless, I was able to take some photos with the drone.
When entering Frombork, it is impossible to miss the statue of Nicolaus Copernicus. Nicolaus Copernicus in 1510 became a canon in Frombork. It was in Frombork that he conducted astronomical observations and began to write his great work "On the Revolutions of the Celestial Spheres".
Frombork is a small town with a port, a beach and a large historic complex with fortifications and a cathedral on a hill. I like such places because everywhere is close :-)
The most famous and most visited monument of Frombork is the castle on the Cathedral Hill with walls and defensive towers, the bishop's palace and the cathedral basilica of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary and St. Andrew.

The interior of the Cathedral Basilica of the Blessed Virgin Mary and St. Andrew.
To visit the cathedral, it is worth buying a ticket with a presentation of the organs. You can learn a lot about an instrument, listen to it playing and see an organist at the counter - it is impressive.
Frombork, as you can see in this bird's eye view, is a small town located on the Vistula Lagoon.
The view from the drone on the Cathedral Hill, the city, the port, the Vistula Lagoon and the Vistula Spit on the horizon.
Canonry house of St. Stanisław Kostka (House of Copernicus) at 2 Krasickiego Street. Mikołaj Kopernik lived and worked in Frombork for 33 years. Probably in this place he lived and conducted research. In the 20th century, archaeological research was carried out in the vicinity of this house. Unfortunately, the platform (the so-called pavimentum), on which the Copernicus observatory was located, was not found.
The main building of the Nicolaus Copernicus Museum is the former bishop's palace on the Cathedral Hill. It is this magnificent Gothic-Baroque building in the foreground.
This magnificent brick building in the neo-Gothic style is the New Bishop's Palace, which was built in the years 1844-1845. The building has been the cathedral presbytery since 1945 and is partially open to the public.
A city beach and an area of active relaxation and kinesiotherapy in Frombork on the Vistula Lagoon.
St. Adalbert church was built in the years 1857-1861 in the neo-gothic style as an Evangelical church.
A very interesting art installation in the Old Market Square. The fountain in the center symbolizes the sun. The circles are the orbits of the planets in the solar system. In each orbit there is a planet or a bench. There is Nicolaus Copernicus on the "earth bench". Interesting idea and great execution!
There is Nicolaus Copernicus in the market square on the third bench from the fountain, which symbolizes the sun.
During the weekend we spent in Frombork, I made several drone flights both in the evening and early in the morning. The views from the top are stunning. Due to the fact that part of Frombork is included in the border zone, each time you want to fly in the vicinity of the cathedral, you should report such a flight to the border guard and obtain a permit to fly.
The building of the former St. Spirit with the chapel of St. Anna. Currently, the hospital houses a museum presenting the history of medicine and pharmacy with the official name: Department of the History of Medicine of the Nicolaus Copernicus Museum in Frombork.

There was once a church of St. Nicholas in this brick Gothic building. There is a city boiler house now.
Looking from the top on the Frombork castle and cathedral, you can admire this gigantic structure and the sense of architects from ancient times.
The Copernicus Tower was built in the 12th or 13th century and is the oldest part of the fortifications of the Cathedral Hill.
Radziejowski's tower is 70 meters high. In the past, the tower served three functions: a belfry, an observation point and a lighthouse. Currently, the Radziejowski Tower is open to the public. From the observation deck at the top of the tower you can admire the buildings of the Cathedral Hill, Frombork and the Vistula Lagoon.
There is an interesting construction of the stairs, there is also a Foucault pendulum and paintings on the walls in the middle of the Radziejowski Tower.
Top view of the stairs in the Radziejowski Tower. The interior and height are impressive.
There is an unusual monument - the water tower at the foot of the Cathedral Hill. The tower was built in 1572 over the canal supplying the city with fresh water from the Bauda River. There was a mechanism in the tower that used the water current to pump it up to a height of 25 meters in order to deliver it through a wooden pipeline to the Cathedral Hill. There is an observation deck at the top of the building that you can enter to admire the panorama of the city.
