Zamość city tour

What to expect from Zamość city tour

Martin’s City Tours is your Zamość tour guide! Zamość is a beautiful Italian style city located in the Poland’s Lublin province. This ideal city was founded in 1580 by Jan Zamoyski, Grand Chancellor and Hetman of the Polish Lithuanian Commonwealth. The historical centre of Zamość was added to the World Heritage List in 1992; it was recognized for being "a unique example of a Renaissance town in Central Europe". All due to the wonderful design of Paduan architect Bernardo Morando. We offer you the chance to explore Jan’s “ideal city” during our Zamość city tour.

And there is more! In addition to the amazing Renaissance architecture, you can visit and admire its fortifications throughout our Zamość city tour. Jan Zamoyski combined his military role with his entrepreneurial mindset by locating his private city on the trade route linking western and northern Europe with the Black Sea. It was one of the biggest fortresses of the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth and was built so solidly that it was able to resist the siege by the Swedish king in 1656. Book your Zamość tour guide, and we’ll provide you with the opportunity to learn its legends and stories.

Zamość’s still existing street layout was designed to resemble a man lying on his back. The most important buildings in the Old Town have their place and importance in basic human anatomy. So, the Zamoyski Palace is the head. The Academy and the Cathedral are two lungs that he was supposed to breathe wisdom and faith through. During your Zamość city tour with an English speaking Zamość tour guide, you will learn which buildings resemble its internal organs and limbs. Cross its backbone and visit the fingertips while listening to historic legends and engaging stories.
