The Market Square and the Town Hall in Rybnik

The market square in Rybnik has served as the center of the city since the Middle Ages. Old, wooden buildings around the square were destroyed in many fires, so the houses that surround the market square come mainly from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Worthy of note is the Classicist town hall, decorated with a clock tower, from the 20s of the nineteenth century. It now houses, inter alia, the Rybnik Museum. A late Baroque statue of Saint John of Nepomuk stands on the market square.
