New Town Market Place is the main square of the Warsaw New Town of Warsaw, Poland.It was formed before 1408, as the main square of the Warsaw New Town. It initially had a rectangular shape, with an area of 140 x 120 metres. In the 15th century a wooden town hall was built in the centre of the square and residential buildings were also constructed. In 1544 the square was damaged by fire, and the town hall was reconstructed in brick. The rest of the buildings remained wooden.In 1656 the square was burned down by Swedes, during the Deluge. The reconstruction was slow, and the town hall was rebuilt again in 1680. In 1688 the Baroque Saint Kazimierz Church was built by Dutch architect Tylman van Gameren. In the second half of the 18th century, wooden residential buildings were replaced by bricked tenement houses. In 1785, the town hall was partially reconstructed and several shops were added to it. In 1818 the town hall was torn down, and the square gained its market character, which continued until 1878. Then, the buildings on the square were expanded and reconstructed to house growing number of craftsmen and workers. In 1932 a statue of Saint Klemens Hofbauer was placed in the square.In World War II, during the Warsaw Uprising of 1944, the square was completely destroyed, 80% of houses were completely demolished, including the church. After the war, the square was reconstructed in the 18th-century style. The reconstruction lasted until 1955.

  • A nice place to take a stroll among nice streets, squares, churches and restaurants. All reconstructed after the War but nice and simple  more »
  • Through new town from the old town, walking around this area, I went to the fountain under the. There was little square in the middle. This side of the new town as a tourist destination, not a general residential area. Church for the residents of the scattered, and stylish buildings and roads.
