Tower of the old town hall in the main square in Strzelin.
Strzelin is a small town in Lower Silesia, it is located approximately 40 km south of Wroclaw. The town received city rights in 1292 and grew around the granite quarry, which exists today as the deepest excavation of granite in Europe.

Strzelin Town Hall was built in the 14th century, underwent multiple fires as a result of wars and caused by lightning and was rebuilt several times. In 1945, at the end of the Second World War, the town hall was blown up. The entire building was burned, only the base of the tower remained, and the upper part was rebuilt until 2011.
