The former merchant houses were probably built around 1535 on a site of previous wooden houses. In the middle ages all sorts of commodities, such as salt, candles and binders were traded here.

After the destructions of WWII the merchant houses were built in Renaissance style. Nowadays the colourful buildings are home to souvenir and crafts shops.

The former merchant houses can be found at the Old Market Square (Stary Rynek), just south of the Old Town Hall.
