Wroclaw’s Town Hall stands at the centre of the City’s (Market Square). The Town Hall developed over a period of about 250 years from the end of the 13th century though to the middle of the 16th century.
It is considered a fine example of Gothic bourgeois architecture. Originally it was a single storey building, and was expanded over the years. One of the most beautiful rooms is the Grand Hall. This dates from the second half of the 15th century. Here, official ceremonies took place. Today, the Town Hall is open to visitors as a museum, and the Grand Hall is also the venue for cultural events, for example concerts are sometimes held here.

Good Morning Ryszard,
I love the symmetry of your composition, which perfectly suits the subject, drawing attention to the repeating pillars and arches.
You have lovely clarity from this indoor shot and nice textural details.
Have a good day,

Good indoor picture, under low light an yet managed fine details and depth.
The first impression I had was about a Medievil-dungeon some place, but that red again the note...
Nice taken shot,
