Toruń, Poland

Toruń is a city in northern Poland, on the Vistula River, with population over 205,934.
Listed on the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites since 1997, Toruń has many monuments of architecture beginning from the Middle Ages, including 200 military structures. The city is famous for having preserved almost intact its medieval spatial layout and many Gothic buildings, all built from brick, including monumental churches, the Town Hall and many burgher houses. Toruń, unlike many other historic cities in Poland, avoided significant destruction during World War II. In particular, the Old Town was left intact, so all its important monuments of architecture are original, not reconstructions.

and yes, were right, Toruń is similar to Tallinn:)))
Thank you for sending such a beatiful card!:)
