Cathedral of St. Martin's and St. Nicholas

Reviewed By paullegate - St Ives, United Kingdom

On the riverside of Brda River is St. Martin and St. Nicholas Cathedral. It is a Catholic church which was built in the 15th Century and has a Gothic style and serves as a parish church and cathedral of the Diocese of Bydgoszcz. It was given cathedral status by Pope John Paul II in March 2004. Inside the cathedral it is very ornate and quite captivating. The cathedral is incredibly charming and is worth seeking out whilst in Bydgoszcz.

Town Square - Old Town

Reviewed By RafalWVIIX - Skoki, Poland

In general, medieval town squares had been taking two forms : of an open square, surrounded by public buildings and houses of gentry and rich townsfolk; so called patricians. And with town's hall or other public edifices in the middle of it. Torun's town square belong to this second type. Marked out after 1251 was an important point located on trade route to Malbork and Gdansk, and not so far from ford through a Vistula River. Back in the past it was most representative and prestigious part of town. And, to be honest, still is. After joining Hanseatic League in 1280 town had witnessed rapid growth. We can admire its effects in beautiful edifices of Old Town Square like Gothic Town Hall. Beside of public gatherings, fairs or tournaments, town square was place where court judgements were announced and public executions of criminals were taking place. In 1454 at the Torun's town square, Gabriel Bazynski voivode of Chelminska Land along with Torun's nobles, patricians and highest municipal officials swore allegiance to Polish King Casimir IV Jagiellon. Of course, the main function of town square were trade and commerce. Town square was divided into four markets where, along with the adjacent streets, selling goods was taking place. Around the old market place can be found one of the oldest tenements in Torun. Many of them constructed in 13th and 14th centuries were, later on, rebuilt in Renaissance, Baroque or Classicist styles. Many of those tenements concealing inside themselves beautiful historic interiors. From all the buildings of Old Town Square its western frontage is the youngest one. After being severely damaged during Swedish siege in 1703 in times of III Northern War ( or so called Great Northern War) it's been partly rebuilt after its end. In place of most damaged tenements Baroque Church of the Holy Spirit was erected. In 19th century some of the rebuilt tenements on the west side of the square were demolished by Prussian government (that was the time after III partition of Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth), and Neo-Gothic edifice of Central Post Office was constructed in their place. Luckily enough, in times of WWII, when German Wehrmacht razed to the ground so many towns and cities in Poland, Russia and other countries Torun's Old Town Square was spared utter destruction, so we can admire its beauty. Definitely worth visiting.

Really cool that even the great Kopernik is wearing a mask in the time of coronavirus. Very neat. No trash around it. Obviously there were lots of tourists but that's predictable since everyone wants a ????.

Old Town

Reviewed By endrju_74 - Ipswich, United Kingdom

We never thought Bydgoszcz has such a nice old town, well, we never thought Bydgszcz has an old town at all, we rather associated this city with post-industrial landscape. It turns out the old town, called sometimes as location town, has a lot to offer, in terms of heritage buidings, museums, and great landscapes along the water system, which is build around Brda river. Obviously the market square, with huge Monument to Struggle and Martyrdom in Bydgoszcz (Pomnik Walki i Meczenstwa Ziemi Bydgoskiej) is the centre of it all, but I would strongly recommend a visit to Wyspa Młyńska (Mill's Island) in first place, as it seems to be the top spot, especially for live outdoor events. Many old building were refurbished recently, so it all lookes very nice indeed.

Great open space with lots of recreational fun for families with little ones. Lots of forested area with bike paths as well as a Zoo that's quite nice. If it's sunny day, this is a great escape from the city life for half a day

Tightrope Walker - sculpture

Reviewed By endrju_74 - Ipswich, United Kingdom

Quite amazing, how it balances just above the river for so many years. Unveiled on 1 may 2004, on the day Poland joined the EU - and this is to commmorate that fact, like Poles finally crossed the river, or least it seemed.... Best view from Jerzy Sulima-Kamiński bridge - that way you got all heritage buildings on Brda river embankment in the background. This sculpture is close associated with another sculpture in Bydgoszcz - Łuczniczka (te Archer woman) - both got same roman style shoes (Łuczniczka wears them, while Przechodzący got them on his shoulder), and the Walker carries an arrow, possibly released by Łuczniczka. The sculpture is right in the town centre - bridge opened for motorised trafic, so be careful. Car park just to the north of the bridge.
