Zamość – an open fortress

Zamość – often called "A perfect Town", "The Pearl of the Renaissance", "The Town of Arcades" and "Padova of the North", added to the UNESCO World Heritage List since 1992. Zamość fortress was designed by Italian architect Bernardo Morando. The fortification surrounding the town was built at the turn of the 17th Century by order of Jan Zamoyski – Polish nobleman, magnate, and the 1st ordynat of Zamość. For several centuries it was one of the largest defensive fortress complex in Poland. It survived five sieges and many tumultuous events. The military significance of the fortification ended in the year 1866. As an antiquated structure it was partly demolished. Thanks to the efforts of local authorities selected fragments of Zamość fortress have been thoroughly renovated and made accessible for tourists.
