In today's photos there is the building of the Malopolian Culture Center 'Falcon' (Malopolskie Centrum Kultury 'Sokol'). The name 'Falcon' comes from the name of the Polish Gymnastic Society 'Falcon' (Polskie Towarzystwo Gimnastyczne 'Sokol') which was established in 1867 in Lviv. In Nowy Sacz it came into being in 1887 when the south part of Poland was under the domination of the Austria-Hungary Dual Monarchy. The society promotes the value of sport, health as well as moral values.The building of Nowy Sacz's 'Falcon' was thoroughly rebuilded at the turn of the century (1993 - 2003).
In the second photo you can see the falcon on the roof which is the symbol of the building and the whole Gimnastic Society.
