The construction of Rynok Square, started by order of Kazimierz III in 1349, was commissioned from German craftsmen, who followed the plan of a traditional German town: a central square followed by living quarters, surrounded in turn by defences. The name of the Square came from the word "ring": a circle or an enclosed space, which was later transformed into "rynok". Throughout the centuries Rynok Square was the political, cultural i trade centre of the city. Rynok Square witnessed celebrations and processions, uprisings, riots and executions. In 1944 it was a battlefield of World War II.
