City of Ostr贸w Mazowiecka, Poland

Another Polish city visited by the Straw Art team as part of the order from Kaes was Ostr贸w Mazowiecka. It is a small city in the Masovian Voivodeship, which was called Ostr贸w until December 7, 1926, there are not many attractions or architectural gems to offer 馃檪 The most representative building in the city, the Town Hall, dating back to 1927, deserves attention. The designer of the building in the neo-baroque style was the city architect Stefan Zwolanowski. The town hall was originally located on the market square in the center of Ostr贸w, and now at Ksi臋偶nej Anna Mazowiecka Square. In 1944 it was completely destroyed, fortunately it was rebuilt. It is also worth visiting the reconstructed Castle of the Dukes of Mazovia, located in the Jordanowski Garden. It was built on a small hill where, according to tradition, the prince’s court was to be located. The wooden castle with thatched buildings, surrounded by a palisade and a moat, is reportedly not a reconstruction of the former medieval buildings there. It is rather an attempt to revive the legend and for the inhabitants a symbol of the city’s past, a meeting place with history and discovering ancient traditions.
