The Town Conservation Reserve is an example of a medieval town that was located on a major Central European trade route. The town was first mentioned in writing in the 13th century. It played an important role in the trading network from Baltic Sea to Black Sea.
The designated area is located inside the fortified city walls that have been preserved for a substantial part. Landmark sights are the Gothic St. Egidius Church, the Town Hall and the dozens of burghers' houses that adorn the central square on three sides. The lay-out of the town center is still original.
