Have a look round the back of the town hall, where you can see an extraordinary fountain with a dramatic statue of Proserpine being borne away - not altogether reluctantly, one suspects - by Pluto. It's lit up at night.

The town hall has an old-fashioned museum with quite reasonable content relating to the town - and most signs are translated into English. A nice way to spend an hour-and-half if you happen to be there. The most interesting thing for me were a number of books from 17th century and the posters and pictures from WWII.

Watching the Ratusz Poznanski's goats butt heads when the clock strikes on the hour is only one of the highlights of the experience. The other is watching the people visiting the square too. Along this side of the square are the artists along one wall. The square is getting more compact due to the numerous restaurants having outdoor cafes, which... More

It has been build on the verge of 14th century. The legend says that after the fire in the town it has been decided to restore the town hall and install a new beautiful... More

What one sees today is a not very scrupulous reconstruction. But, still, it gives a decent flavour of what the building must once have been like. Inside, there is the... More
