History

In the centre of typical medieval town square of Szydłowiec there is a late Renaissance town hall built in 1602–1629. It is counted among the most impressive and precious monuments of Burgher architecture in Poland. Its silhouette resembles to some degree the town hall of Sandomierz, but makes a grander impression. Its noble figure makes the town hall the most characteristic landmark of the town. In front of the town hall's façade there is the town's historical pillory. It goes back to the first half of the 17th century. Szydłowiec's pillory is a unique monument of the kind in Poland.
