A Hidden Jewel!

Zamosc, Poland…the old town’s center piece is the Great Market Square. The town has been called The Pearl of the Renaissance and has been compared to Sienna, Italy or referred to as the Padua of the North.

The colorful Armenian houses line the square and the impressive town hall is a magnificent centerpiece. It is a grand place in a simple location that you would never expect to find such grandeur. Plus, it all seems still undiscovered by tourists and you can stroll without the crush of visitors like in Krakow.

An official UNESCO heritage sight, work is being done to restore much of old town to it’s former glory.

Zamosc is that one of a kind place located off the beaten track…but finding that hidden jewel is always a great thing when traveling!
