Slupsk Town Hall

Słupsk, Poland

The Town Hall in Słupsk was built in 1901, when the town was known as Stolp, and was a part of the Prussian Province of Pomerania within the German Empire. In 1945, the city became part of Poland, under the name of Słupsk. The town hall is listed in a group of monuments protected by law.

Neogothic monument of 1901, the office of municipal authorities. The guildhall tower may be accessed by visitors since 2003. In the tower there is a collection of portraits of Mayors and Presidents. In the hall in the first floor the Key to Europe is presented next to the figurine representing the Słupsk Lucky Bear. One of the elements of the guildhall is an imposing, 56 metre high tower where 180 steps lead. On the top of the tower there is a sightseeing terrace from which one can view the beautiful panorama of the city and the Słupia riverbed.

Climbing the tower one may not fail to notice the sentimental gallery of photographs depicting the old, prewar Słupsk and first stewards of the city. Climbing higher one encounters an ancient clock mechanism operating uninterruptedly for 100 years.

Too bad there is no zero or minus. Concrete. Concrete. Concrete. Commune. Offices. Not helpful, malicious, even life-making workers. Avoid especially the communications department.

I also rate the communication department at 0, Mr. Andrzej serving in the registration department - a total failure. They only make it difficult during the Pandemic, and the numbers on Wednesday are not available until the end of the week. You can see from the opinions that the department of communication is rated very poorly, they spoil the overall impression of cooperation with officials in the City Hall.

I would give 0 stars if Google allowed. To do something in our town hall is a drama. You wait x time outside the room, only hear the laughter from the room. 20 minutes or longer after the agreed date, they will kindly accept you. Incompetent service in the driving license department. They don't know anything to do this as if it were there for punishment.

Historic building in the city centre housing the municipal offices of the mayor. There is a large parking space (metered) in front making it quite convenient for visiting the nearby shopping area. Great festive decorations on special occasions.

Amphitheatre of the Three Gauls

The Amphitheatre of the Three Gauls was part of the federal sanctuary of the three Gauls dedicated to the cult of Rome and Augustus celebrated by the 60 Gallic tribes when they gathered at Lugdunum (Lyon). The amphitheatre was built at the foot of the La Croix-Rousse hill at what was then the confluence of the Rhône and Saône.

Excavations have revealed a basement of three elliptical walls linked by cross-walls and a channel surrounding the oval central arena. The arena was slightly sloped, with the building"s south part supported by a now-vanished vault. The arena"s dimensions are 67,6m by 42m. This phase of the amphitheatre housed games which accompanied the imperial cult, with its low capacity (1,800 seats) being enough for delegations from the 60 Gallic tribes.

The amphitheatre was expanded at the start of the 2nd century. Two galleries were added around the old amphitheatre, raising its width from 25 metres to 105 metres and its capacity to about 20,000 seats. In so doing it made it a building open to the whole population of Lugdunum and its environs.
