The order was carried out at the request of CD Project Red – the creators of the game. Arthur’s impressions from the course of work “Working on the Witcher was an unusual and new experience for me. For the first time I faced fantasy style and probably now the most popular Polish hero of world pop culture, and I collaborated with the excellent and experienced sculptor Tomasz Radziewicz”.

According to the monument’s card, the walls were built in the mid-fourteenth century. The preserved fragments are today over 600 years old. This is one of our oldest monuments, which testifies to the city’s past and its importance. City fortifications have also left their mark on our present day, i.e. today’s street layout. If you look at the map, you will see the building quarters in the center and streets drawn in the Middle Ages, e.g. The upper one, marking out the former course of the walls. To this day, we can admire the souvenir of the Great Water Gate, which existence reminds of the Chinese House, the bay window on the building is its reduced replica.
