You can find this lovely statue of the famous Polish astronomer Copernicus near the Castle. It is very popular among the tourists who rub his nose for good luck and pose for pictures on his lap. What a simple but nice attraction!

This is the area where you will find a lot of Copernicus statues. He was an important person and still is.

Had to have a photo with the well known local hero who was very multi-talented. It was a Tuesday and rather quiet, so very lucky to have to ourselves.

Lovely bronze statue. The nose is very shiny because people rub it for good luck (I think). Good idea to take a selfie with it!

When we first passed the Copernicus bench on the way to the castle, there was a crowd of people there and everybody wanted to have their picture taken with the famous astronomer. We came back later and then we could enjoy a minute or two...More

We visited Copernicus bench and saw schoolchildren swarm around the statue of the famous astronomer. It was fitting for the man who revolutionized the thinking and the understanding of the solar system.

If you go to Olsztyn, you should spare a minute to go to the bench and take a photo with Kopernik. It is a good reminder for the future that Kopernik's story is related to this city which I had not known before.

I strongly recommend taking a photo with Copernicus on this Copernicus Bench. It's definitely worth trying your luck and fate

A statue - and a bench - celebrating Copernicus' stay in nearby Olsztyn castle. A well worn photo opportunity and a particularly shiny - well rubbed - nose!

Lovely sculpture and very interesting. Dont miss it on the way around old town:) obviously its a monument for M Kopernik which the olsztyn is very proud of hosting. I remember its been there many years ago and seems always fun for kids to clumb.
