Town hall square in Jelenia Góra

Jelenia Góra is a city in south-western Poland. The city is surrounded by Izera Mountains, Kaczawskie Mountains, Rudawy Janowickie Mountains and Karkonosze Mountains (Giant Mts.). The name of the city means "hart mountain" in Polish. The city's origins officially date back to the legendary founding of the settlement by the Polish prince Bolesław III Wrymouth in 1108 and in 2008 celebrated its 900th anniversary. In the central point of the market square there is a building of town hall built between 1744 to 1749. The entire square is surrounded by Baroque tenement houses with arcades, which originally used to serve the merchants to sell their goods. (Wikipedia)
