History

It was constructed in 1773-1785 for Antoni Barnaba Jabłonowski by Jakub Fontana and Dominik Merlini. In 1817-1819 it was reconstructed for the purpose of becoming the city hall, taking the role of the dismounted Old City Hall. In 1863 the palace was damaged by the fire set up by demonstrating Polish patriots in the wake of January Uprising. In 1864-1869 it was reconstructed in the Neo-Renaissance style. The characteristic tower was added to the building at that time. During the Invasion of Poland in 1939 the city hall served as the headquarters of the civilian defense of Warsaw. During the Warsaw Uprising of 1944, the German forces destroyed the building. In 1952-1958 the debris from the city hall were removed.

In the 1990s the building was constructed again, according to the pre-1936 architectural plans. The shape of the palace, tower and facade are in the original pre-war state. Some parts were however built in the contemporary style.
