Town Hall

Town Hall

Grodno Town Hall is a monument of Renaissance architecture (and later classicism). The beginning of its building is the late 15th century, when the city was awarded the Magdeburg law. 1568 engraving by M. Tsyundt and 1600 engraving by T. Makovsky are the unique graphic sources allowing imagining building design.

Engravings represent the town hall as an architectural dominant not only the market but the whole city. It was a two-story building topped by a tower with a high spire. The ends of walls were decorated with attics.

Town Hall building was strongly damaged during the invasion of the Moscow army in 1660s. Town hall stood for almost a century and a half in the half-ruined state. It was rebuilt in the style of classicism in the late 18th century.
