23-28 March 2015
This winter’s EVAA indoor championship event is being held at the new Hala-Sportowo-Widowiskowa complex: the outdoor throws, walks and cross country events are being held at the adjacent stadium and the nearby municipal park. Torun is a large town rather than a city and the competition venues are on the outskirts of the town rather than the town centre but still relatively close to our two hotel options.
4* BOULEVARD HOTEL
This 4* hotel is located along the banks of Vistula River and is one of the best hotel options available. It is just 350 metres from the Old Town Market Square and next to the famous Leaning Tower. It offers modern, air-conditioned rooms with a flat-screen TV. Guests can visit the on-site spa and wellness centre and try a selection of body treatments. They can also relax in a hot tub or a sauna. All rooms are decorated with wooden features and come with free internet, a spacious bathroom and a mini-bar. Most rooms offer stunning views of city’s Gothic architecture and the river. A varied buffet breakfast is served every morning at the hotel’s elegant restaurant, which specialises in seasonal international dishes: there is also a bar. The competition venue is 2.3 km away.
