In the beginning I will tell you that the Wroclaw Market Square It is one of the largest among which you can find in Europe.

And the building that will undoubtedly focus your attention is the one quoted from old town hall, which is located next to the building of the current city hall.

It is true that as in the main Polish cities, this building was very seriously damaged during the WWII, so in the 50s it had to be completely rebuilt.

Therefore, it is not the original building of the mid-thirteenth century.

But what you will see now is a very faithful reconstruction of the town hall, during which special care has been taken to respect the great artistic wealth of the facades.
