Hah. I'd imagine if Ireland ever hosted a tournament and there were groups based around Galway and Dublin, Athlone and Mullingar would be the equivalent of Torun for two weeks.

The big deal is it's far cheaper than elsewhere, it's between Poznan and Gdansk, it has good transport links to those two cities (well, by rail anyway, not to mention steve amsterdam's buses), it's already a tourist-focused, historic town (a UNESCO world heritage site, unlike Mullingar, you have to admit), there are thousands of Irish fans staying there, it involves the same amount or less travel as basing yourself in Gdansk, Sopot or Poznan and it allows the opportunity to spend a couple of days away from the tournament if people feel like it.

But mostly it's because it's cheaper.

Then maybe head to Berlin or Krakow for a couple of days.

3 nights in Poznan / 4 in Sopot / 3 nights in Poznan... but I wouldn't criticise anyone for chosing Torun. Costs are everything these days but most of all, if there is more than 50 Irish in any one pub, it'll feel like Grand Central... I imagine many of nights will be spent standing outside pubs so you may as well be anywhere!

Why Toruń? Because it's a simply beautiful city...full of charm!! Have been living here for 9 years and have travelled extensively around Poland. Toruń is the place to be for sure!!!

There are no beaches in Gdańsk!!! It has a harbour if you want to dodge the boats! Sopot does indeed have a beach but in summer it'll be packed!! The Poles flock to the seaside when the weather is good...and this is the result:

The reason I'm staying in Torun:
It's between Poznan & Gdansk
It's cheap & reasonable
It has good train connections
It's not ripping us off
It seems a nice city
Glennstandish is very helpful
I'm not on a HORN!!!!
TorunThumbs Up


Thanks wicklowrunner...glad to be of help!!! Toruń is looking forward to welcoming all the Irish fans this summer. You won't be disappointed! You'll have a warm welcome here...and get to see a little more of Poland as well. ENJOY!!

Google images doesn't show the beaches packed.

At the end of the day lads you're coming to have a fab time and enjoy the footie. All 3 places (Toruń, Gdańsk and Poznan) are wonderful and you'll have fun in any of them!!
