The building of “Sokół” in Jarosław was erected in the beginning of the 20th century, in accordance with the design by an excellent Kraków architect, Teodor Talowski. The edifice housed a cinema-and-theatre hall with a balcony and a gallery in the back, rooms for activities and meetings on the first floor, as well as an open terrace for gymnastic exercises (now walled up). On the north side, the top of the façade is adorned by a sculpture of a winged young man, the personification of sports. This impressive 3-metre tall statue is the work of architect Roman Dawidziak. It is a replica of the original statue, which was destroyed by the Nazi occupiers. The building façades were decorated with reliefs showing: the coat-of-arms of Jarosław supported by two griffins, the Pogoń coat-of-arms, and an eagle with a crown on a laurel wreath. The design of the building combines elements made of stone and brick. Currently, the building houses the Municipal Centre of Culture.
