The Latin School Building

  Stare Miasto     06 Aug 2018

A brand new building constructed around the ruins of what was once the Latin School. Building first took place here in the late XIV century and though its original purpose is unknown it is thought to have been the home of the Brotherhood of St. George.

From the second half of the XVI century a school was here and from 1603 it was called the Latin School. Over the next 250 years the building was extended and modernised until the school finally moved into new premises on what is now ul. 17-go Marca in 1866. It appears that the building was then used as a warehouse before suffering fire in 1899 and destruction in 1945.

The lower walls on the river side have survived since medieval times and what you see today is home to a Cultural and Educational Centre incorporating a planetarium, museum of crafts and conference centre.
