Copernicus and astronomy in Torun
We will visit Nicolas Copernicus House - museum housed in two small Gothic
burgher houses - one of
which used to be a merchant's storage space, and the other the house where the
scientist Nicholas Copernicus was born,
adapted for use as a museum during the years 1960-1963 and 1972-1973.
We will also visit St. Johns' Cathedral with Copernicus Chapel - where the great
astronomer was baptised.
We will visit the biggest and the most famous Polish lowland health-resort,
one of the most popular holiday-resorts. It is here where you can find particular
complex of 19th century saline graduation towers. The air surrounding it,
saturated with atomised iodine-content brine, has specific medicinal properties.
Beautiful parks and flower-beds, fountains, pump-wells and so on.
