    The astronomer Nicolaus Copernicus lived and worked in Toruń for many years. You can visit his house. Also in Toruń there is one of the largest Polish universities of the Nicolaus Copernicus University, and in the season from October to June, half of the city's inhabitants are students from other cities and countries. You can meet them in pabas, clubs and beer gardens. Toruń is a nice compact and old town with many monuments and museums, some buildings from 1600, the remains of the Teutonic castle, which was built around 1400. The city of Toruń was founded by the Teutonic Order (Teutonic Knights) in the years 1200-1300
