11 Listopada Street is the main promenade of
Bielsko-Biała. It is a shopping street and once
it was a trade route. It runs through the
historic center of the Old Town of Biała. It is
900 metres long. The origins of the street go
back to the mid-eighteenth century, when it
was given its present shape in 1772-1785. In
that time, it was called Krakowska Street. Most
of the buildings along the street date from the
late eighteenth and the early nineteenth
centuries and represent the so-called
Josephine style, which was then promoted in
the Austrian Empire.
Today's Polish Army Square (Plac Wojska
Polskiego) in Bielsko-Biala is one of the
two market squares of old Biała
Krakowska. It was laid out at the time of
granting the city rights to the town in
1723. It has an approximately rectangular
shape measuring 100 by 80 m. There are
interesting buildings around the square,
whose present form comes mainly from
the nineteenth and the early twentieth
centuries. In the south the square adjoins
11 Listopada Street, which is a pedestrian
zone and the main promenade of the city.
The House "Under the Frogs" is one of the textbook
examples of Polish Secession. The building located on the
corner of the Wojska Polskiego Square, (the former White
Market), in front of the Martin Luther Lutheran Church,
has a fairytale architecture. It is known primarily for the
portal, which is part of the sculptural composition of the
two feasting frogs, one of which, leaning against the
barrel, holds a glass, and smokes a pipe, while the other
plays the mandolin.
The edifice of the erstwhile Town Hall located
at the Town Hall Square is one of the
emblematic buildings of Bielsko-Biala. It is a
magnificent and elegant building erected in
the Neo-Renaissance style in 1895-1897. It
was designed by Emanuel Rost. The town
hall, like many other buildings in BielskoBiala, clearly refers to the architecture of Vienna.
The international route linking Bielsko-Biała (on the Polish side) with the Slovakian city of Martin is an excellent offer for fans of long-distance bike rides. Red markings lead from the city on the Biała river through the Soła valley and further to the border pass of Glinka, and finally through Orava and Liptov villages to Martin. The route is about 60 kilometers long in Poland, and about 100 kilometers in Slovakia. Good form and three free days at best are required.
In the eighteenth century, Biała lay on the
south-western edge of the Polish–Lithuanian
Commonwealth. As a recently established
town, it attracted entrepreneurial evangelicals
who in neighbouring Cieszyn Silesia did not
possess the freedom of professing their faith
as well as of erecting their own churches. After
the partition act of 1772 and the 1781 Patent of
Toleration evangelicals were allowed to build a
church, and they quickly seized that
opportunity. In 1792-1798, an elegant Classicist
building was erected, which is still the pride of
