Town hall in Poznan
The first town hall was built at the turn of the 13th and 14th centuries. It was a Gothic, modest building. In the years 1550 to 1560 it has been transformed into a magnificent residence of the city authorities. Despite repeated destructions, wars and fires, the building retains its Renaissance appearance until today.
On the central tower is visible a clock face, above it is one of the biggest attractions of Poznan: mechanism of two goats which butt together every day at noon.
The clock was installed in 1551, in 1675 a lightning destroyed the mechanism, which was later rebuilt and now is a tourist attraction with the trumpet call Poznan played from the tower of the town hall.

Cześć Ryszard, trudno przejść obojętnie koilo poznańskiego ratusza. Super kadr. I juz po koziołkach. Ekstra kolory i ostrość.
Na Kaszubach dość zimno, grzybów i rybów nie widzę, ale jest slonecznie i przyjemnie.

una bellissima architettura che va a completare le belle facciate cittadine.
Molto belle anche le decorazioni, oltre al magnifico orologio.
Conoscevo la storia delle due capre, una vera curiosità che attira cittadini e turisti.
Bella foto, ben ambientata, mi piace vedere cosa succede nei dintorni.

Excellently captured town hall from very well selected viewpoint. The view from lover angle makes the building majestic and dominant. The light is perfect, the contrast against blue-white sky superb. The people around add nice life to the scene.
Very well done.
P.s. Sorry for my slow response, but my access to internet is not very regular during my travelling.

This building of the Twon Hall is beautiful. I remembered a post done by Gert (Holmertz) with lots of crowds in the place waiting for the 'goats' to come out. Fine details in good light against the sky
