Sun Clocks

Tourist attractions

Image: sun clock gubin

Wall clock in the blind located on the third floor of a simple residential building at Wyspiańskiego 13. Its shield is decorated with a bas-relief depicting Gubin parish in an empty field, a tree, and a sun dial closed with clouds and anthropogenizing sun. The only missing element is the gnomon, which unfortunately makes the clock unusable.
The above-described blende is not the only decorative element on the facade - the lower floor is decorated with a bas-relief in a recess of similar dimensions, showing a plant composition with the date of the building's erection and probably its renovation and / or restoration of historic elements as well as symbols of the mason's guild. Presumably, the building could have had a much richer facade, which was simplified later (e.g. after World War II).
