Photographer's Note

The market square in Sandomierz - a rectangular square (110 × 120 m) located in the center of the old town of Sandomierz. Opatowska and Oleśnicka streets, Sokolnickiego streets from Długosz, Mariacka and Szybka streets and Zamkowa streets from Buliński are located in the square. The market is sloping (height difference up to 15 m). The central part of the square (almost in the middle of the Market Square) is occupied by the Gothic town hall with a statue of the Virgin Mary and the city well. Three historic buildings stand out in the western frontage of the market square - the House under the Wings with a Renaissance portal, Konkwit Boboli and the famous Oleśnicki House with arcades, in the northern one - Kamienica Gomółki, and in the southern one - Lazarczyk's House with arcades and the Dutreppich Tenement House. Around the Market Square there are cafes, restaurants, souvenir shops and numerous art galleries. In the south-west at the corner of the market square, a huge anchor with a chain standing upwards, symbolically reaching the sky, was placed.
