Market Square is a central square of the Lviv city

Market Square is a central square of the Lviv city.

It was planned in the second half of the 14th century, following granting city rights by King Casimir III the Great of Poland.

The king ordered Lviv to be moved more to the south, where a new city was built to the plan of a traditional European settlement: a central square surrounded by living quarters and fortifications.
