Zamość is a small historical city of 63000 inhabitants, located in southeast Poland,
250km southeast of Warsaw, not far from the border to Ukraine. The city was founded in 1580 by Jan Zamoyski, who modeled it after an Italian Renessaince town. Nowadays it still retains the original street layout, fortifications and a large number of original buildings blending Venetian and central European architectural traditions.
The highlight (and centre) of Zamosc is the big market square (Rynek Wielki w Zamościu), a rectangular square surrounded by colourful buildings and dominated by the town hall with its huge tower.
Besides the market square there is a large church (the Roman Catholic Church of Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary), but not much else.
The historic centre of Zamość has been a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1992.
