Malbork – town hall

History

The current town hall in Malbork was erected in the years 1365-1380 in the place of an earlier building. Already at the end of the 15th century it had to be rebuilt after the destruction of the Thirteen Years War. Another major repairs had to be carried out in 1901, after the city fire of 1899. Until 1919, the building served the needs of the municipal self-government, and after its transfer to the New Town Hall, some rooms were used by the police. Currently, the Town House of Culture is located in the town hall.
