The leaning tower is not as impressive as the one in Pisa but it's quite good anyway. You can find it if you are looking from the river towards the main entry gate on your left.

The Leaning Tower in Toruń is a medieval defensive Tower which owes its name to its considerable tilt. A legend says that the creation of the tower was connected with an offence of one of the Teutonic Knights from Toruń who, against the monastic rule, fell in love and dated a beautiful daughter of a wealthy merchant. As penance for breaching the chastity vows, the knight was ordered to build a leaning tower as a symbol of his crooked ways and deviation from the strict , monastic rules.

Not only Pisa has a leaning tower, so has Torun. You can visit inside, it is a strange feeling, you feel dizzy.

Reading the info sign on the tower is weird as it's placed on the horizontal so it doesn't line up with the brick courses which disorientates you for a second or two. The local myths about the lean are weird and wonderful to.

Located at the south-west end of Torun's city walls and at the Pod Krzywa Wieza Street, Leaning Tower is known as one of the landmarks of Torun's Old Town. It's been built in 13th century of red brick as a part of Torun's defence system. It started leaning due to the loamy ground it's been constructed on, although, legends tells another story about the reasons hidden behind the leaning. One one of them says that it was punishment for sin of one of Teutonic Order knights. As a monks, Teutonic Order Knights were forbidden to meet with women, but one of them fell in love with daughter of rich merchant and they started to meet in secret. Their affair was found out and reported to local Commander of Teutonic Order. Woman was sentenced to 25 lashes, and the knight was ordered to build the tower. However, because of his sin against monastic rules of the Order, tower has tilted. In 18th century tower ceased to be used for defence purposes and was converted into women's prison. Century later, tower housed gunsmith apartment and blacksmith shop. Around the same time its Gothic tented roof was changed into flat pitched roof. In 70's and 80's of previous century cafe and souvenir shop were located there. Nowadays, interiors of Leaning Tower are occupied by Cultural Department of Torun and cafe and are not open to the public, unfortunately. Still worth to see, especially, that there is only stone's throw from there to Nicolaus Copernicus house and Museum of Toys and Tales. And if you are tired of all this historical buildings and streets busy with tourists there's Dolina Marzen Park to the west from Leaning Tower, just few minutes of walk from it, where you can take a rest from bustling city.

More archeological in nature. On main Torun walk we did which was in Rick Steve’s tour guide. Both directions and English descriptions could be better. Still a good visit.

This tower is really slanted. There are legends about its story. It is in a nice touristic area. See the fortifications here.

The tower is really crooked and seems like it is about to fall. Okay, nobody panic, you can fearlessly climb the stairs to the top of it.

The defensive bastion was built in the second half. XIII century as a simple, 15-m high bastion fused with a system of defensive walls. It is located very close to Nicolaus Copernicus monument.
