Old Town Hall

Built on a square plan with an inner courtyard, Toruń's Old Town Hall is a dominant symbol of the city's medieval gothic centre, which became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997. The original building was constructed in the 13th century and later given a make-over towards the end of the 14th century. Most notably, the Old Town Hall features a multistory courtyard and a 40-metre-high clock tower, which is open to climb and enjoy the observation deck at the top. Open seven days a week, it offers a panoramic view of the entire city of Toruń in all its glory!

The Hall houses the Gallery of Gothic Art, with its collection of unique 14th-century stained glasses, an exhibition presenting the history and artistic handicrafts from the period of 1233-1793, an exhibition on the mints and coins of Toruń from the period of 1233 / 1238-1765, the Grand Hall with a gallery of portraits of prominent Toruń patricians (from the period of 16th - 18th century), including a portrait of famed astronomer Nicolaus Copernicus, as well as the Royal Hall with the oldest collection of Polish kings’ portraits, jewellery collections known as the 'Skrwilno' Treasure and the 'Nieszawa' Treasure, and an impressive gallery of Polish paintings from mid-18th century to 2010, which includes works of Jan Matejko, Wojciech Gerson, Stanisław Ignacy Witkiewicz, Jacek Malczewski, Julian Fałat, Andrzej Wróblewski and Zdzisław Beksiński.
