Kraków, wieza ratuszowa




Kraków, wieza ratuszowa





Krakow
Wieza ratuszowa

Krakowski ratusz przez kilka wiekow zdobil Rynek Glowny po zachodniej stronie Sukiennic. Byl to budynek poznogotycki, ze schodkowymi szczytami, pietrowy, z wysoka wieza. Glowne wejscie do ratusza prowadzilo od strony wschodniej, po schodach, ktorych strzegly lezace lwy. Ratusz zostal rozebrany w 1820 r. i z dawnych zabudowan wladz miasta pozostala tylko wieza.
Jej powstanie datowane jest na ostatnia cwierc XIV w.; byc moze ukonczona zostala ok. 1383 r. W XVI w. na wiezy znajdowaly sie trzy dzwony, a na wysokosci okapu obiegal ja drewniany ganek dla strazy. W 1524 r. umieszczono na wiezy zegar z polichromowanymi figurkami sprowadzony z Norymbergi. W czasie pozaru w 1680 r. zostal zniszczony helm, zegar oraz sklepienie sali na I pietrze. Wieze odbudowano i podwyzszono o te czesc, gdzie dzisiaj miesci sie tarcza zegara. Prace, ukonczone w 1686 r. prowadzil slaski budowniczy Piotr Beber. Jednak juz w 1784 r. musiano nakryc wieze nowym helmem. Po zburzeniu ratusza, przez caly XIX w. wieza niszczala, chciano ja nawet rozebrac. Byla odnawiana w latach 1913-1914, 1925-1930 oraz 1964-1969 r., kiedy dodano wykusze, klatke schodowa z lwami, fontanne, lawy kamienne oraz obramienia okienne w elewacji polnocnej.
Wieza w dolnych kondygnacjach jest zbudowana z kamienia ciosowego, wyzej z cegly; ciosy kamienne sa tylko w narozach. Z trzech stron pokryta jest okladzina kamienna, ktora zdobia pionowe laskowania, przerywane poziomymi pasami rozet w kwadratowych obramieniach. Otwory okienne ujete sa wimpergami, czyli trojkatnymi szczytami zdobionymi zabkami i sterczynami. Sciana polnocna, dawniej przylegajaca do ratusza jest gladka, ceglana. Znajduja sie w niej otwory, ktore dawniej komunikowaly wieze z ratuszem. Mury wiezy maja grubosc dwoch metrow, a sciana polnocna niemal trzech (2,80), gdyz w jej szerokosci mieszcza sie kamienne schodki prowadzace na wyzsze kondygnacje.
Wewnatrz, na parterze wiezy znajduje sie sala przekryta gotyckim krzyzowym sklepieniem, gdzie miescil sie dawniej skarbiec. W sali na pietrze, pelniacej dawniej funkcje kaplicy, zrekonstruowano gotyckie sklepienie, a z pierwotnego wyposazenia zachowaly sie wsporniki i rzezbiony fryz o motywie debowych lisci.
W czasie kazdej odnowy wiezy w galkach wienczacego ja helmu umieszczano pismo o aktualnych wydarzeniach i wykonanych pracach oraz owczesne monety i medale.

Town Hall Tower
in Krakow

For many centuries Krakow Town Hall adorned the Market Square west of the Sukiennice. It was a late Gothic building, two storeys high, with crow steps and a tall tower. The main entrance was from the east, through a flight of stairs guarded by recumbent lions. The Town Hall was dismantled in 1820, and the tower is all that remains from the ancient site of municipal government.
The tower was constructed in the last quarter of the 14th century; probably completed around 1383. In the 16th century, it was equipped with three bells, and a wooden watchman’s gallery on the outside. In 1524, a clock with painted figures was added, brought from Nuremberg. During the fire of 1680 the spire, the clock, and 1st floor ceilings were destroyed. The tower was reconstructed and raised, adding a section in which the present dial is placed. A Silesian builder, Piotr Beber, completed restoration works in 1686. However, as soon as 1784 the spire was once again replaced. After the demolition of the town hall, the tower fell into disrepair, and there were plans to dismantle it as well. It survived, and was renovated in 1913-1914, and 1925-1930; during the restoration phase in 1964-1969 the bays were added, as well as the stairs and the lions, a fountain, some stone benches, and window frames in the northern elevation.
Two lower floors were built of stone blocks, and the upper part, of brick; with stone blocks placed in the quoins. The tower is covered with stone lining on three sides, decorated with vertical bar tracery, with inset horizontal bands of rosettes in square frames. Windows are clasped within triangular gablets decorated with crockets and pinnacles. The northern wall, which used to adjoin the body of the town hall, is plain brick, with openings that once connected the two buildings. The walls of the tower are 2 metres thick, and the northern wall is even thicker at 2.8 metres as it incorporates a stone staircase leading to the upper floors.
Inside, there is a rectangular room on the ground floor, a former treasury, covered with Gothic cross vaults. Upstairs, in a former chapel with baroque ceilings, fragments of buttresses and a carved oak-leaf frieze have been preserved.
After each restoration, written accounts of issues current at the time, as well as coins and medals, were placed inside the orbs at the top of the tower. Today these memorabilia are more than merely municipal collectibles: they speak of the history of the town and its hall.











Kraków




Kraków





The Dominican Church (Kosciol Dominikanow Sw. Trojcy) was the site of the original wooden church of the Krakow burghers, dedicated to the Holy Trinity and erected in place of the former pagan temple. In 1222 the Bishop of Krakow, Iwo Odrowaz, at the instigation of his kinsman St. Hyacynth installed the Dominicans; their first base in Poland. The basilica with a nave and two aisles was erected in the 13th century - in its construction brick was used for the first time in Krakow - and rebuilt several times; the imposing stepped gable of the east front was added in 1462. There is a beautiful late 14th century stone portal with exceptional filiate and animal carving inside the neo-Gothic vestibule. The 1850 fire ravaged the interior and the vault of the nave. In the chancel is the bronze stele of the humanist scholar Filippo Buonaccorsi (Kallimach) designed by Stwosz, and a copy of the tombstone of Leszek Czarny ("the Black"), Duke of Krakow. The chapel of St.Hyacinth, 1614-18, (at the head of the flight of steps in the north isle) has stucco decoration and contains the tomb of St.Hyacinth by Fontana. The Kaplica Myszkowskich, 1603-14, (fifth chapel in the south aisle) makes striking use of black and white marbles; the busts of the family are in the dome. The next chapel contains a miraculous image of Our Lady of the Rosary; the crypt is the resting place of Teofilia Sobieska - mother of Jan Sobieski. The monastery cloisters with preserved fragments of walls are among the oldest in Krakow.
