In the heart of the market stands the late Gothic Town Hall with a 66-meter tower, nowadays serves as a museum. In the basement of the Town Hall works Świdnicka Cellar - one of the oldest pubs in Europe, running steadily from the 15th century. The square surrounded by 60 tenement houses founded by Wrocław patricians.

The Square hosts three popular landmarks: A reconstructed pillory where convicted people were punished. The pillory originally built at 1492 and reconstructed at 1985; The fountain established in honour of the former city mayor Bogdan Zdrojewski; and a monument of Alexander hr. Fredro that previously stood in Lviv. The Rynek is the place for Christmas markets, New Year's parties, religious, academic and military celebrations.
