The history of Wroclaw Market Square
The market square in Wroclaw - known as Rynek in Polish - is one of the largest in Europe. Historians date its establishment as between 1214 and 1232, during the rule of Henry I the Bearded. Today's buildings are 20th-century reconstructions of the originals. The colourful Wroclaw Market Square is now a central meeting point in the city for locals and tourists and a pedestrianised zone.
An essential sight for visitors in Wroclaw Market Square is its large sukiennice (middle section), home to many tasty restaurants and intriguing jewellery boutiques.
Wroclaw Town Hall is another must-see. The original building began construction in the 13th century but work continued until the 16th century, so it showcases a variety of architectural styles. Literature fans should be sure to stop at the statue of Alexander Fredro in Wroclaw market square, a celebrated Polish comic playwright.
