HISTORY OF SETTLEMENT ALONG NARUTOWICZA STREET IN ┼╗YCHLIN

 

ABSTRACT

The buildings along Narutowicza Street, the principal street of ┼╗ychlin – a small town founded in the 16th century on the border of the ┼ü─Öczyca and Mazovia regions, today in the ┼üód┼║ voivodeship – provide a good example of harmonious Classicist architecture from the late 19th century. The street’s axis is closed with the facade of the town’s late-Baroque parish church. Plotted with this effect in mind, the street reflects the predominantly North-South direction of the historic tract from ┼ü─Öczyca and Or┼éowo to P┼éock.

Key words: ┼╗ychlin, small founded town
