Former Gymnasium No. 1, Myślenice

Budynek byłego gimnazjum widziany z zewnątrz.

The construction of the school lasted from 1873 to 1877. It is a tin-roofed one-story building with two entrances: one from the eastern and one from the western sides. Classrooms were on the ground floor and on the first floor. The large hall decorated with busts of the Polish kings was used by the Town Council to hold meetings and balls. For a few years, another room  was used to stage theatrical pieces. There were breaks in the education during World War I because the building was occupied by the army and was used to hold Russian prisoners of war. The building was refurbished in 1932. Tiled stoves were installed in place of the previous iron ones. During World War II, the German army occupied the school building; after that, it served as a hospital for Soviet soldiers. The monumental building is decorated with numerous pilasters and stuccowork with floral motifs. The crest of Myślenice and two commemorative plaques can be seen on the walls.
