Copernicus House

Visiting Toruń without seeing the family home of Nicolaus Copernicus is like not visiting Toruń at all. Currently housing a modern museum, it uses multimedia techniques to present the development of science over the centuries, the daily life of burghers in a late Gothic Hanseatic house, and the figure of the famous astronomer.

Planetarium in Toruń

A modern planetarium is a must-have in the city of the birth of the most eminent Polish astronomer, Nicolaus Copernicus. Tourists shouldn't miss this place either. In the Toruń planetarium, the first in Poland, the 'all-sky' system was implemented, allowing for the projection of images across the entire dome above the spectators, providing the sensation of actually being inside nebulae or star clusters. Selected astronomical sessions in the planetarium are also available in multiple language versions: English, German, Russian, and Spanish.

3 reasons to stay with us

Halo facilities are located in popular mountain and seaside resorts. Soon,
Halo will also appear in the centers of the most beautiful Polish cities.

Halo loves being with people - taking care of their good experiences, preparing pleasant surprises,
initiating inspiring meetings, and celebrating everyday hospitality.

Halo draws its colors from the richness of Polish nature: the green of forests, the red of flowery meadows, the gold of fields, and the blue of the sea.
We interpret them in our own way: in the color of wildflowers, you will find accents of coral reefs, and in the pine green - the subdued color of basil.
