Market Square in Pułtusk

Local name: Rynek w Pułtusku

The market in Pułtusk is considered to be the longest market in Europe. The four-square-meter plaza is a meeting point for the city's inhabitants. It is here that there are numerous events, including the Great Medieval Fair, or the days of Saint Matthew - patron of Pultusk.

On the north side, the market closes the Basilica of the Annunciation of St. Mary and St. Matthew. It is a three-nave temple built in the middle of the fifteenth century, in a gothic style. On the south side, the roundabout sits round the Chapel of Sts. Mary Magdalene. Renaissance church is a rare example of a free standing church built on a circle.

The rest of the market is surrounded by historic tenements. In one of them lived the poet Wiktor Gomulicki. On the other hand, Napoleon himself, who came here after the battle with the Russians, rested on the other side. In the middle of the square, as is the medieval town, stands the Gothic town hall, which serves as a lookout tower. The building houses the Regional Museum.
