Bielsko-Biala - City Hall and nearby buildings

This is the area nearby the City Hall Square (Plac Ratuszowy) in Bielsko-Biała (Biała district, in the past a separated city). The City Hall, nowadays one of the icons of Bielsko-Biała, is the building with a characteristic tower. It was built in 1897 according to a design of an architect from Vienna, Emanuel Rost (Bielsko and Biała belonged at that time to the Austro-Hungarian Empire). It's a Neo-Rennaissance building with many features of the 19th-century Vienna architecture (in the elevations, there are resemblances to the Vienna's Palace of Justice). The main feature of this building is the clock tower with a beauty spot. Also the interior, which is also full of decorative elements, is very interesting, especially the vestibule and the Council Room. Such interior arrangement (a vestibule connected to a main hall) exists also inside the University of Vienna, and the arrangement of the Council Hall resembles the interior of the Vienna's Natural History Museum.

Another interesting building presented in this panorama is the building of the Pekao Bank, located on the corner of Stojałowskiego Street and Ratuszowa Street. It was built in 1923 according to a design of Leopold Landau. It's a three-storied building designed in Art Nouveau style (with features of modernism), with a rounded corner with an white eagle (the symbol of Poland - this building was constructed after the rebirth of Polish state) on the top. On the right side of the eagle there is the Bielsko's coat of arms, and on the left side - the Biala's one (unfortunately not visible in this pano).
Opposite the bank, there is a Neo-Renaissance tenement from 1894. And the tenement with a café on the ground floor was build in the early 1900s.
