Zamość is one of the most beautiful and unique towns in Poland. It was founded in 1580 by the Polish king and grand duke, Stefan Batory, as a “new Venice” – a model Renaissance city.
The well-preserved old town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, with a huge market square surrounded by palaces, churches and mansions. The town is also home to Europe’s largest surviving medieval town hall. Zamość is a great place to wander around, soak up the atmosphere and admire the Renaissance architecture. There are also plenty of restaurants, cafes and bars, and a lively nightlife.
