Torun Nightlife, Poland

Although most people come in Torun with the intention to go sightseeing or do business, Torun nightlife is far from boring. A first reason is the presence of university students in serious numbers; the second, that each respectable trading centre must have a pub tradition – after all, best deals are made around a glass of beer; and third, where are tourists supposed to go in the evenings?

Torun Nightlife – Restaurants

The best thing about Torun’s beautiful buildings and apartment houses is that they host either a bohemian café, a gingerbread shop or a cozy restaurant. Budget travelers will be happy to find plenty of fast-foods and student canteens around Torun, but if you want a taste of the famous Polish sausages, red beet-root soup or meat dumplings, you’d better try one of the 140 restaurants spread along the Old Quarter. Popular restaurants include Polonia, Herbowa, Metropolis, Piast or Restauracjia Staromiejska.

Torun Nightlife – Bars and Pubs

Torun bars and pubs get pretty crowded at night, especially during the peak season. Whether you prefer noisy terraces or ultra-modern clubs, Torun nightlife has a little for everyone. Most tourists prefer to hang around in pubs like Jazzgod, Areszt, U Atrakcyjnego Kazim, Piwiarnia u Szwejka or Zielony Wieloryb (just don’t ask what all these names actually mean!). If you want to dance and bounce in the rhythms of electro or Disco Polo music, you can try one of the following clubs: Kotlownia, Od Nowa, Papaya Club, Sfera or NRD.

Torun Nightlife – Culture and Events

A perfect way to end your sightseeing session would be to visit Torun Planetarium, one of the largest such facility in Poland. Comfortably seated in your armchair, you will be able to travel through the universe like only Sci-Fi heroes do. Going to a theater representation is also a smart alternative; you can choose between Baj Pomorski, Wiczy or Wilama Horzycy theatres. If you’re not able to cope with the language barrier, maybe you can choose to visit the city during the International Theatre Festival “Kontakt” or the International Festival of Puppet Theatres. Music lovers will have something to choose from all year round, starting with Symphony Orchestra of Torun concerts and continuing with International Festival of Folk Orchestras, Torun Blues Meetings or St. John’s Festival of Organ Music.

The art of cinema is also celebrated in Torun: the three big cinemas (Centrum-CSW, Cinema City and Nasze Kino) are hosting two annual film festivals: “Lato Filmow” in summer and “Toffifest” in November. If you still crave for more, take a train to the ultra-modern Warsaw or try to experience the Krakow pub culture.
