Places worth seeing in Rzeszów

Lubomirski Castle and Palace

Due to its location, Rzeszów had to resist Tatar invasions more than once. For this reason, the local castle was built as a bastion castle, with fortifications and a moat. The first structure of this type was built on the site of the present castle in the 16th century. At the end of the 19th century, the castle buildings were in a very bad condition, therefore a decision was made to rebuild it, as a result of which the castle gained its present shape.

Market Square and Town Hall

The history of the market square and the town hall dates back to the 15th century, when a building was built that served as the seat of the city council, a jail or a place where there were craft stalls. For some time, there was a bell on the town hall tower, which announced the beginning and end of trading on the market.

The market square in its present form was rebuilt after a fire that took place in 1842. The brick houses probably replaced the wooden buildings that burned down then. For a long time, the market was a place of trade in jewelery, clothes and furniture. Its attractions are not only the houses surrounding the market square, but also the Underground Tourist Route running through former warehouses and cellars located even 10 meters underground.
