    An interesting place in terms of architecture and discovering a different aspect of history. Worth to visit to see old models of sanitary facilities that are no longer in use and discover hidden facts of basis needs of some famous people.

    The row of late-18th-century half-timbered granaries on the Brda River is the symbol of the city and very often photographed place.
    Bydgoszcz was at the crossroads of two trade routes from Greater Poland in the south to Pomerania in the north, and from Krajna in the west to Mazovia in the east.
    In the past when the Bydgoszcz Canal joined the Vistula River to the Oder in the 1770s, Bydgoszcz was firmly on Europe’s trading map.
    Granaries recall then the city’s trading history and together with grain, stored goods as varied as ceramics, wine, beer, timber, spices and sugar.

    Main Post Office is one of the most spectacular buildings located on the Brda river bank and definetely one of most beautiful post offices I have ever seen. It was built at the end of the 19th century in the Prussian national style. Until today the building is occupied by the post office, what is interesting- open 24-hours.

    Bydgoszcz was a bit unlucky with its most important building, as town hall definitely is. The proper built one appeared in sort of early 16th century right in the middle of market square, replacing a wooden one, which caught fire. The new bricked town hall, with tall tower, was in use till 1708, when it burned down. Unsafe ruins stood there for another century, till it finally got dismantled. Remains were discovered in 2010, and further discoveries were made in 2016. Now it is planned to cover those remains with glass, for everyone to see. But since the old town hall gone, local council used a number of different locations to perform their duties, till 1879, when they bought a former Jesuit collegium, which by that time was just a regular German gimnasium. So since the end of 19th century the new town hall was a hidden from market, behind west side of market, behind the church. That changed in early months of WWII, when German invaders decided to knock down the whole west side of the market, including a Jesuit church. That way the town hall is now visible from the market, being its western side. Part of the market adjacent to the town hall is often used for patriotic events. Important as it is for town citizens presents no value for tourists, appart from its eastern facade, which is pretty much in every photo taken on the market. But it cannot be visited for tourists purposes, which isn't a big shame, as after so many reconstructions over the years it's former baroque style has been lost somehow.

    Until it is open finally for the public (finally means with all the exhibitions, shops and restaurants) it is available for trips. We got full "package" of information about history of mills and the buildings and have seen number of buildings and rooms including roof-terrace.

    The building was constructed after 1789, during development of an industrial complex in the area of the Mill Island, built at the same time as the Bydgo­szcz Canal. It had served as a reloading granary and grain warehouse for the nearby mills. After 1945, it became the property of the State Treasury, then being leased by the State Grain Works until 1974. Next it was remodeled many times, starting from 1979, it had been leased and in 1997, it became the property of the Leon Wyczółkowski Regional Museum in Bydgoszcz.
