Square in Świdnica

The Old Town’s market square contains a bit of every architectural style – from baroque to postwar concrete structures – the cumulative effect of rebuilding after successive fires and the damage caused by Austrian, Prussian and Napoleonic sieges.

Step inside the bright yellow town hall and walk the 223 steps to the top of its tower for free city views, or save your feet and take the lift. The town hall also contains the Old Trades Museum.
