It is formed as a nearly perfect square of 133 x 133 m. and offers to the visitors preserved baroque, rennaissane as well as gothic city houses. The originaly renaissance city townhall (1555) has be rebuild in years 1727-1730 into its nowdays baroque look. The townhall went through recontruction in past years and is a very nice atraction to see probably the most impressive of the whole square.
