  Town Hall, Wroclaw
by Paul2001

One of the most magnificent secular medieval buildings in Central Europe is the town hall of Wroclaw. Built in the 13th century after the Mongols had destroyed the town, the town hall has had many additions and restorations since. Most of what you see today dates from the 15th century. However the famed astronomical clock actually was construction in 1580. This is the showpiece of the structure and for my money makes the exterior of the town hall much more interesting that the interior.
Inside there is a municipal museum and several knights halls. These seem to be used as exhibition hall for travel art exhibits. At the time of my visit there was really nothing of interest showing.
The museum is open from 11am to 5pm on Tuesday to Saturday and from 10am to 6pm on Sundays. It is closed on Monday. Admission is 5zl.

Directions: In the centre of the Rynek
