Not very long ago, this historic square had been reduced to an ugly car park. But after a 2010 renovation inspired by the nearby Maly Rynek squares cultural success, this public space became a popular hangout. Car-free, surrounded by beautiful townhouses, with the large light, sound and water fountain in the center, it’s a favourite of kids and their pets. The renovation of the place itself was fraught with delays thanks to the many archaeological discoveries made at this location - this used to be the site of an old Jesuit cemetery and church, demolished in 1802. Looking over the square is the oldest theatre in the country.

Among the people buried here is the infamous Samuel Laszcz, a pillager, rapist and robber who got away with his crimes for the virtue of being a good commander in wartimes.
