Hanseatic city of Wroclaw | Poland

Wrocław is the fourth largest city in Poland with 650,000 inhabitants. The Old Town Hall is located at the center of the city’s Market Square. The oldest parts of the Gothic building dates back to as early as the 14th century. 

In that period trade is booming which resulted at the end of the 13th century in a membership of the Hanseatic League, a powerful association of German and North European cities. Wroclaw left the league in 1474.
