Photographer's Note

Main Market Square in Wroclaw taken through the stained glass window of the Town Hall.
The Market Square is a rectangular, medieval market square, one of the largest markets in Europe with the dimensions 213 x 178 m, founded according to Magdeburg law between 1214 and 1232. Over time, the patricians' houses appeared and by the middle of the 14th century they had formed a closed construction with the limits of the plots defined. There are now 60 numbered plots. Each property has a traditional name, usually associated with the coat of arms visible on the facade for instance Under the Griffins, Under the Blue Sun or Under the golden Dog.
In the photo you can see the southern part of the Market Square.
