Not that far from the train station, on Priest Jerzy Popiełuszko Square, in 2010 there was a fountain that was built as a first-of-a-kind and currently only-one-in-Poland.
That is the “Solar System” fountain. On a round, basalt square surrounded by trees, there is a centrally-oriented golden ball powered by water, made of glass and steel – it's a Sun. Around it, remaining planets made of granite circumnavigate the Sun on their steel rails – the orbits. There are miniscule lights between them immitating stars. The whole attraction is impressive particularly at night, when the fountain and its diodes, illuminated beautifully, create cosmic climate.
