Photographer's Note

Toruń, located in northern Poland is one of the country's oldest cities and also one of the most beautiful. It has several red brick buildings and cobbled streets adding a lot of charm to it. The most interesting part of the city to visit is the Old town which dates back to medieval times. The famous astronomer Nicolaus Copernicus was born here. He was controversial at the time for he proposed the heliocentric model of the universe whereas the church liked to believe the earth was the centre of all the action. His house and museum are located in Toruń.

Toruń has several interesting museums and of particular interest is the ginger bread museum where the friendly Polish guides, dressed in traditional medieval costumes teach you to make ginger bread that you can take back home as a souvenir.

This picture was taken on cold but bright winter's day from across the Vistula River flowing along it. Thin large slabs of ice float over the surface of the river and lazy birds can be seen hitching a ride on them.
