Nicolaus Copernicus sculpture is the main element of the square. The square is exceptional owing to its natural stone ellipses, on which individual planets orbit. Their system is emphasised with plantings of blooming plants and tulips of the new variety called Nicolaus Copernicus. A solitaire tree – a green ash named Nicolaus has been planted in the square as well.

Metal statue of Nicolaus Copernicus was made during the First Bydgoszcz Plein-Air Sculpting (August-September 1973) by Maria Chudoba- Wiśniewska. It weighs 864 kg and is 4.57 m high.
