I was lucky enough to visit Zamość a couple of years ago. This is a UNESCO World Heritage site, and it is well deserved. The town was “designed and built in accordance with the Italian theories of the ‘ideal town,[wiki quote]'” by the town’s founder Jan Zamoyski and the Italian architect, Bernardo Morando.
The central square boasts Zamoyski’s Palace, the “Armenian Houses,” and a wonderful pink-hued pavement. It has far more a Mediterranean feel on a summer’s day than that of Poland.
There are some nice cafes along the market square, and it is a beautiful place to take in the architecture while sipping a drink.
A bit of the dark past of Zamość is not far away, however, as the synagogue of what was in pre-war times a Jewish community of 12,500 stands as a memorial.
This is (and I hate the over use of this term) a gem in the Polish countryside. A must visit!
