Copernicus there. Some people were admiring it. They told me that he was a
famous astronomer. He discovered that not the Earth but the sun is the
centre of our solar system.
After that, I went to the local bakery. The shopkeeper offered me their most
famous cookies – gingerbread. They were really delicious. Gingerbread is the
mostrecognizable thing in Toruń.
Another interesting thing in Toruń are the medieval defence walls. They
weren’t damaged by the World War II like most of the monuments in Poland.
They are huge and impressive.
