Photographer's Note

The Old Town Hall in Wrocław is a wonderful building that is a symbol of this city. It is a late-Gothic building standing in the center of the Wrocław Market Square - one of the best-preserved historic town halls in Poland and one of the most valuable architectural monuments in Wrocław. It's hard not to pay attention to the Wrocław Town Hall while walking around the Market Square. Its intricately decorated facade impresses with its beauty. The building itself is two-story, with a basement and designed on an elongated rectangular plan, with a tower and several outbuildings. The town hall was built in several stages over the course of about 250 years, from the end of the 13th century to the 16th century.
Currently, the magnificent and beautiful Town Hall houses a branch of the Wrocław City Museum - the Museum of the Towns' Art Museum, constituting its main exhibit.

In the basement of the Old Town Hall, there is the famous Piwnica Świdnicka - one of the oldest restaurants in Europe, and perhaps the oldest, which operates continuously to this day. You can taste mead here? Famous Wrocław dwarfs also stand by the Old Town Hall - another symbol of the city! You will find several of them here, on all facades of the building.
