The Market Square Town Hall
Is it similar to many others, or is it one of a kind? The current renaissance town hall was built in the second half of the 16th century at the walls of an older one from the 14th century. Nowadays, it is the location of the District Museum which holds the historical and artistic exhibit in its collection.
Among the monuments gathered here, you should pay special attention to the late renaissance furniture, documents, the localization act from the 13th century and the so-called Sandomierz chessboard.
The tenements by the Main Market Square also have a historical value and remember many crucial events from the city’s history. You should especially stop by building number 5 – which is known as the Bobola boarding school, and the Olesnicki Stone House Number 10, where in 1570 the representants the Czech, Calvinist and Luteran brothers submitted the Sandomierz agreement.
The small market square
Similar Limanowa, Nowy Sacz and Krakow, Sandomierz has its small market square too. It isn’t much smaller from the Main Market Square, which is located only a dozen meters away.
