Description of contents:
The bastille comes from XV century. Its shape is similar to the shape of the Red Sea Bastille, however it is lower- its height is about 31 metres. The painted cover possesses decorations made of the glazed brick. In the bottom part there is the dungeon, and the whole is divided into 8 levels adapted both to observation and defence. In case of a war conflict, the walls' segment connecting the Purzycka Gate with the Gate of the Weavers was to be protected by the weavers' guild. That constitutes the bastille's name. In XVIII century there was popularized the second bastille's name- the Ice Bastille, when inside there was kept the ice. It was planned in XVIII century to depose the bastille, however on the grounds of its exceptional monumental character and aesthetic values, it was rescued for the new passionate generations.
