Very Cool

Copernicus looks out over his own little domain. He sits in his own square by Old Town. It was really cool to be able to walk by him and see him a few times.

Yet another monument to add to your Wishlist. Very easy to find, just head towards Nowy Świat street which is the continuation of Krakowskie Przedmieście street.

A nice monument on the main street Nowy Swiat, clearly displaying what his contribution to science was.

There is no missing the Copernicus monument, as it is right smack in the center in front of you while you walk down Nowy Swiat. You can't miss it, and you really don't want to! While the obvious and ubiquitous Man-Sitting-In-A-Thoughtful-Pose rises above everyone on a large pedestal, surrounding the monument is a replica of the solar system, complete with... More

The statue is a nice one, and it's located in an area full of other attractions such as museums, palaces and stuff. Also possible to find restaurants, bars, supermarkets and stores around it.

Quite beautiful monument, dedicated to a very important scientist from Poland. Great symbolism of the monument is really something to admire. Premium location, you can't miss it.

For sure you'll be walking the Nowy Swiat street loaded with cafes, restaurants and stores. While doing so, you'll bump to this monument dedicated to a famous Polish mathematician and astronomer who certainly deserves a picture with you.

Nicolaus Copernicus was a Renaissance mathematician and astronomer who developed a model of the universe with the sun at its centre rather than the earth. A bronze monument of Nicolaus Copernicus, holding a compass and armillary sphere, can be found in front of the Academy of Sciences building. The monument is beautifully made and is well worth a visit particularly... More

A nice monument of Copernicus, but nothing to read in English, but that is not unique when you are a tourist abroad...
