Renaissance City Hall in Poznan

Polish cities and towns reflect the whole spectrum of European styles. Romanesque architecture is represented by St. Andrew's Church in Kraków (1079-1098) and characteristic for Poland Brick Gothic by St. Mary's Church in Gdańsk (1343-1502). Richly decorated attics and arcade loggias are the common elements of the Polish Renaissance architecture, like in City Hall in Poznań (1550–1555). For some time the late renaissance, so called mannerism, most notably in Bishop’s Palace in Kielce (1637–1641), coexisted with the early baroque like in Church of SS. Peter and Paul in Kraków (1597-1619). Second half of the 17th century is marked by flourished of baroque.

Side towers, visible in Branicki Palace in Białystok (1691-1697), are typical for Polish baroque. The classical Silesian baroque is represented by University in Wroław (1728-1737). Profuse decorations of Branicki Palace in Warsaw are characteristic of rococo style. The center of Polish classicism was Warsaw under the rule of the last Polish king Stanisław August Poniatowski. The Palace on the Water (rebuilt 1775-1795) is the most notable example of Polish neoclassical architecture. Lublin Castle (rebuilt 1824-1826) represents the Gothic Revival style in architecture, while the Izrael Poznański Palace in Łódź (1888-1903) is the best example of eclecticism.

Archery is the art, practice, or skill of propelling arrows with the use of a bow, from Latin arcus. Historically, archery has been used for hunting and combat, while in modern times, its main use is that of a recreational activity. A person who participates in archery is typically known as an "archer" or "bowman", and one who is fond of or an expert at archery can be referred to as a "toxophilite".
