Dear Friends, we’re delighted to invite you to participate in the Ninth Meeting of the European Association for Forensic Entomology to be held in Toruń, from the 18th to 21st of April 2012. Toruń is one of the oldest cities in Poland, and full of historical monuments. With a population of over 205,000, it is a large centre of economic life, science, culture, and a popular tourist destination. Lying on the Vistula River and the southern edge of the Chelmno Land (former Teutonic order localization) the city is over 800 years old.
With its Hanseatic traditions, Torun has historically played a major role in commercial relationships between Northern and Western Europe as well as Central and Eastern Europe. Today Toruń is the self–government capital of the Kuiavia–Pomerania administrative region (Polish: Województwo Kujawsko–Pomorskie) and an important administration centre. Toruń’s Old Quarter is the world’s highest–class historical monument (not sure what this is meaning). Its spatial layout has survived intact since the Middle Ages, and as a result we can now admire the superb complexities of its excellent mid–thirteenth–century urban solutions, which have remained unchanged for centuries.
To feel the medieval spirit and to observe and admire original burgher houses, granaries, Gothic cathedrals, and the essence of historical Poland, one must visit Toruń on his own…
The second half of April and May are the months when Toruń is visited by the greatest number of tourists. Springtime reveals the cultural season in its height with temperatures varying from 10 to 20 degrees Celsius during the day, and very little rainfall. The last few years have shown that the May tourist season peaks into June and the remaining summer months – especially considering Toruń is vibrant with artistic life throughout the entire warm season.
