Reviews

Zamosc is very pretty, historic city with charming old town. The town is very well preserved and the starry layout is still visible. The Renaissance part of the town is not big. Even if you walk everywhere and look at everything in detail - not only on each one of the streets of the town proper, but also in the fortress around, be sure to enter into the Renaissance church (a masterpiece!), go to the castle - you won't need more than 4-5 hours. If you are in a hurry, 2h would be enough for the core. But if you love this kind of beauty and want to relax, enjoy, eat, have a bear and see everything, you won't regret dedicating a whole day to Zamosc.
Madelyn
I've taken the ITS coach from Lublin and now I think that wasn't my best move. Zamosc is definitely the most beautiful and best small town in Poland. All you can read anywhere about it is true: beautiful beautiful beautiful + well preserved + wonderful Italian style Renaissance architecture + ideal city etc.

Questions and answers

Is it worth to stay in Zamosc for longer?
