The Main Square, or 'Rynek' as it is called in Polish, was laid out way back in the mists of time, in the 13th Century, after the city was razed to the ground by marauding Mongols. Since all those years ago the Square has maintained its size and shape, although the grand houses that line every side were constructed and reconstructed with each passing century and hence represent every style from Gothic to Art Nouveau. In actual fact, owing to the almost total destruction of the Market Square in World War II, all of the buildings which you now see are 20th Century reconstructions of their predecessors - painstakingly brought back to life by the Poles after they inherited the city in the wake of the war. The general consensus is that 'they done good', and Wroclaw's Market Square has never looked as resplendent as it does today.

Beautiful images there, but some of those squares look so bleak and empty without the actual market stalls!

You don't need market stalls year round. They come out around Christmas usually.

Vilnius. City hall square during Bartholomew's fair days-one of many fairs, taking place here. First Bartholomew's fair was held here in 1495, what means- 517 years ago.

Video. http://tv.delfi.lt/video/7nApjsxB/

My photos of the event.
