Photographer's Note

I must admit I don’t always read all the notes under photos, but because I noticed some confusion in the comments under my recent photos, I wanted to clarify it. I have shared a lot of photos from my hometown Tarnow, which is located in southeast corner of Poland, About 80 km east from Krakow. My recent photos though are from Torun, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site Town located 430 km from Tarnow, in the north central part of Poland, an area which I visited for the second time in my life.

I have showed you already two unique towers of Torun:
The first one being the split at the very top tower of the Church of the Holy Apostles James and Philip at the New Town Square:

The second one was the square flat tower of Old Town Hall:

The third tower of interest, which I present in this photo is the tower of Torun Cathedral. The earliest church on this site was built in 13th century, the present structure originates from 14th century. In one of the side chapels there is a 13th century baptismal font at which Nicolaus Copernicus was baptised.
