Lake Chelmzynskie is one of tourist attractions of the town. It locates some metres from old town square. There are few sandy beaches for vacationers. Some of them are secured.
Lake makes Chelmza a real resort zone. In summer when the weather is warm many locals come to the lake for a rest. Chelmzynskie is also known between Torunians, becouse Torun doesnt have own beach.
There are water sport possibilities, rent of water quipment, beach volley court etc.

Old town square is pretty nice. It is surrounded by beautiful houses. Some of them are similar to houses typical for large cities, some are typical for small towns. Square houses have 2 to 4 floors. Square is compact not too wide, and the spirit of old town, of old times exist there.
Small decorative trees are growing around, small blue fountain stands on the side.
In summer street cafes appear to the old town square.

There is a shop in Chelmza where you can buy legendary Torun gingerbreads. This is a shop of gingebread producer "Kopernik". So you mustn't go to Torun for gingerbreads :-) Shop locates on the street between old town square and St. Michael church
