The Town Hall in Nowy Sącz

Description

The Town Hall in Nowy Sącz is the most impressive and eye-catching building in the town square. As befits the seat of the city authorities, it is a high and multi-story building. The front elevation is symmetrically designed and covered with a window frieze, which form 33 coats of arms of Polish cities, and on the axis of the building there is a four-storey clock tower. The first building to serve as the town hall in Nowy Sącz was built in the 15th century. Over the years, it has been damaged many times, mainly as a result of fires, which led to its ruin and irretrievable loss of valuable documents. The present building of the town hall was erected after the previous one was burnt down, in 1894 it is kept in an eclectic style, and its interior reflects the neo-renaissance and neo-baroque style. Neo-Renaissance is the main hall of the town hall, i.e. the meeting room, decorated with paintings by Piotr Spitzmann-Karwosiecki, depicting the history of Nowy Sącz.
