Photographer's Note

Town Hall in Sandomierz is one of the most beautiful Renaissance town halls in Poland. Built in the 14th century, originally in the shape of a tower. Expanded in the 15th century, it had the plan of an elongated rectangle, while in the 16th century it was crowned with an attic. At the beginning of the 17th century, a tower was added to the west. The town hall has suffered from fires many times, incl. in 1623 and 1757. The building is a brick structure. A high attic covers the roof. The plastered tower with an arcaded entrance to the ground floor rooms is covered with a tin roof and topped with an eagle from the times of the Duchy of Warsaw. Fr. M. Buliński mentions in the "Monograph" the discovery of a large cellar at the Town Hall in the 19th century, which served as a prison. The accused were tortured there. This was to be proved by the hooks and wheels in the walls. In the part occupied by the museum, an exhibition of historical and artistic nature is presented. The atmosphere of historic interiors is enhanced by furniture sets in the late Renaissance, Neo-Renaissance and Neo-Baroque styles.
