The Old Town of Toruń sits on the banks of the Vistula, suitably fortified, as you can see, against English invaders…

Crossing the bridge I indulged in a little nostalgia…

…and beheld unfortunate anti-communist illiteracy…

 

On the banks, it was a good day for a spot of reflection…

…and it was the lunchtime of an ageing mariner…

Boats carried tourists through the afternoon…

For some reason, dwarves had been imprisoned underneath the pier…

Toruń was the hometown of Nicholas Copernicus. Here, I thank him for robbing us of our sense of existential importance…

Copernican and Teutonic souvenirs featured heavily in the marketplace, along with these peculiar good luck charms…

I had no idea of who Zbigniew Lengren was but anyone with a monument like this has to have been a good chap…

I popped into the rather ornate Holy Spirit Church…

One of the most beautiful pieces in the church was its most humble…

 

Travelling onwards, into a summer evening…
