He is watching all lovers that making dates in the City Center. The best known place to meet and find eachother. Take a close look Copernicus has mustache. You can suprise even natural born Toruń citizens withe that fact.

Long time ago, there was a belief that the sun revolves around the earth. This belief was refuted by Polish astronomer, Nicolaus Copernicus. Copernicus was born in Torun, Poland and his statue is conveniently located right at the center of the Old Town.

Its a statue. doesn't do anything, by itself its nothing special. It gets the extra of being in the main square in the city of Copernicus. Could use a bit extra info regarding him and the city.

This statue is in the heart of the old town. It's a beautiful spot with a tower right behind it. Very pretty at night and seems like a busy central spot.

Central point of Toruń old town. In my young days (25 YA) most of the dates started here ;) Maybe it is so still now.
