Long and Yellow

This building is situated in the very center of Nowy Sacz, just one minute walking from the town square. On the left there is the Square of May 3rd (it commemorates the day of May 3rd, 1791 - establishing of the first Polish constitition - it's worth to know that it was first constitution in Europe and second in the world - just four years after the American one).

This "yellow" theme is bouncing around the blogs, maybe in advance for the next Theme Day.
This building is charming, I love the turrets and, as a Polish history buff, aware of the value of the Polish constitution of 1791.
I can see a statue on this square, someone famous?

O, widzę, że masz coś 'mocnego' na środę :)

W kwestii formalnej -- wcześniej w Europie była Korsyka i Szwecja.

This is the statue of Stanislaw Malachowski. He was (inter alia)the Marshal of the Four-Year Sejm (1788–1792) and starosta (prefect) of Nowy Sacz's region. He was co-author of the Constitution of 3rd May.
PAK - yes, we have found that in 1755 it was the Corsican Constitution but we haven't found that the Sweden one was before Polish Constitution of 3rd May:)

Chodzi mi o szwedzką konstytucję z 1772 roku.
