Wroclaw Main Square (Market) – A Brief History
Wroclaw’s history as a vibrant trading hub can be traced back to the Middle Ages. Rynek, the main square in Wroclaw, was once the city’s main market square. Here, merchants from all over Europe gathered to sell their goods.
However, over time, the square evolved. By the end of the 19th century, it gradually transitioned from a traditional market to a more urbanised centre. The quaint market stalls were replaced by permanent establishments such as shops, restaurants, and bars, while seasonal markets and events became the primary source of market activity.
