  • additional attractions "MY SPECIALIZATION TRIPS" – those activities take place outside the main didactic program and present Poland as an attractive place of educational, scientific and research opportunities; we offer various attractions depending on the specifics of a given module, including sightseeing, shows, visits to various places, trips outside Toruń.


The module presents Toruń, a city on the UNESCO World Heritage List, at the crossroads of the 15th and 16th centuries. Students will become acquainted with the concepts of universalism and regionalism in the protection of cultural heritage. A fascinating adventure awaits them in the history of Europe, between East and West and North and South. The permeation of ideas and the intersection of multiple cultural routes in Toruń and the region will be illustrated by their materialisation in various heritage sites. The course will discuss medieval intellectual migrations: Islam, Judaism and Christianity in theological dialogue. The importance of ideas and politics will be illustrated by the phenomenon of secularisation of the Teutonic Order state in the Reformation era. The audience will learn about the Vistula River as a route for the flow of people and ideas from the Middle Ages to Modernity. It will be of considerable value to learn more about the outstanding Renaissance man, Nicolaus Copernicus, in his home town on the anniversary of his 550th birthday.
