As for the fact that Nicolaus Copernicus was born in Torun, everyone agrees. However, doubts begin regarding the address of his home.
One of the hypotheses indicates the house at St. Anna street, where we will see a museum dedicated to the famous astronomer. The second hypothesis negates the first one and as the real place of the birthplace announces the address Old Town Square (Rynek Staromiejski) 36. Also the third address of birth exists, but only Napoleon was brought there... We will try to see all three places to be absolutely sure of finding the right one.
The Copernicus monument from 1853 presents a man in a professor's gown with an astronomical device. The Latin inscription on the plinth says: "Nicolaus Copernicus, the inhabitant of Torun. He moved the Earth and stopped the Sun and the Sky".
An intriguing detail of the monument - discovered only in 2003 - is the fact that the sculptor placed a mustache on his face! Prussian standard of male beauty...
Another sensation is the confirmation of the authenticity of the skeleton found in Frombork with the genetic code of the astronomer. In 2008, hair found in a book belonging to the astronomer was compared. The book was looted during the Swedish Deluge in the XVII century and is now located in Uppsala (Sweden)...
The Leaning Tower in Torun - was built in the XIV century as an element of a defensive wall. A 15-meter building bent over the sandy ground until a stable ground was found.
According to legend, the tower was built by a brother of the Teutonic Order and the deviation from the vertical position was proportional to his deviation from the clause of chastity and sexual abstinence...
Today, no one measures the degree of our deviations - because the tower would inevitably have to fall down.
We can instead check the purity of our conscience. If, after resting the back and the heels against the tower wall, we stretch our hands out and we will not fall on our faces - it means that our hearts are clean.
I assure you that few will pass this test.
