The city of Częstochowa on the Warta River was founded in the 14th century. The Market Square was an important part of the town, a trade center and a residence of the town authorities. It was rectangular in shape and its original size was about 175 x 65 meters. At the end of the 18th or at the turn of the 19th century, buildings were built in its northern part, thus reducing its size. On the south-west side, the market is adjacent to the corner of the church square, on which the St. Sigismund's church was built in the mid-14th century.
Probably until the mid-17th century, Częstochowa was surrounded by a system of defensive facilities in the form of walls, city gates or stone and earth ramparts. To this day, the Market Square has retained its appearance, and the layout of most of the streets of the Old Town has been preserved.
