Situated just around the corner from the old town square, this is a large church your can't miss. Worth a look around, very tall and interesting architecture awaits.

This is another fine Gothic church in Torun. Yes there are many but that doesn't diminish each one so stop here, admire the architecture, frescoes, sculptures and white interior.

Fantastically high ceiling and tall narrow stained glass windows. Quite stunning to experience. My wife's father was originally married there before WW2, so rather a poignent visit.

Unlike many Polish churches, this one has kept some of its original frescoes and there are many worn-out tombstones in the pavement and funerary plaques and monuments.

In my opinion the most interesting church in Torun. No typical towers, tall vertical walls, raw and dark Gothic interior. It is really worth, plus free entry. Moim zdaniem najciekawszy kościół w Toruniu. Brak typowej wieżyczki, wysokie pionowe ściany, surowe i mroczne gotyckie wnętrze. Naprawdę...More

One of many amazing old buildings of Torun. Especially interior is impressive because of its white ceiling which is rather a rarity in this kind of churches
