Heliocentricity indeed . Nice spot for a photo op at the old town square in Torun. Torun is unique as it is authentic in it's architecture having been not destroyed in WWII.

During a week I saw three different statues of Copernicus: in Torun, Warsaw and Olsztyn and I liked this one in Torun the most. This monument is a real centre of the town.
