"walking and gawking" Sandomierz Things to Do Tip by Pawtuxet
Sandomierz Things to Do: 23 reviews and 53 photos
These historic towns are made for walking the cobblestoned streets, and resting a while in a cafe to take in the ambiance of the place. There are stories connected to nearly all of the buidings here. As I mentioned, the town dates to 800 but the buildings here are restored or rebuilt from the 1300's to 1700's.
Their gothic town hall dates to around 1349 with other later additions. It is still used for the town council, as well as a museum and spaces for local societies. There is a wonderful sun dial on the south side of the building. Still more restoration was being done to the facade, so I didn't photograph that portion.
The building with the sign, POCZTA POLSKA belonged to the Olesnicki family and was used for an important meeting amongst various protestant groups in 1570 to sign a document known as the Sandomierz Agreement. The building was altered in the 1700's and is currently used as the local post office.
And so the stories go for each of the beautiful buildings. It would be worth taking a few days here to do tours of each of the ancient buildings and study all of this sweet little town's history.
