Among the biggest attractions is the massive brick cathedral from the 15th century which is proud of one of the steepest roofs of the church in Europe . Then there is the bell tower and the bishop's palace from the 17th century, now used as the city museum which presents the pieces of art created by European painters from the 15th to the 19th centuries. Among the major attractions in Nysa is the Minsterberski Gate Tower, church of St. Peter and Paul, the Baroque fountain built in 1701, and the medieval towers Wieze Ziębicka and Wieze Wrocławska. The main historic square, known as the Square, is unfortunately not preserved in its original form because it was destroyed during the Second World War - Only the south side of the square is about its original shape.
