You can't visit Torun without saying hello to the hometown boy who made good. . . Do your homework and brush up on why he changed the way we see the world. . . I traveled solo with a Real Poland Tour Group.

A good location to have the statue - right outside the town hall in the Torun Main square. Torun is proud of the man that "stopped the sun".
