"It is with pleasure and pride that I would like to invite you to come to Zamosc, the 'Padua of the North' and to visit the fortress of the great Polish military commander, the city that in the 16th century was built by Jan Zamoyski, the great crown chancellor and excellent statesman, in the spirit of the renaissance, the city that combines history, a rich tradition and modernity." (Marcin Zamoyski, City President of Zamosc)

Zamosc is an ideal city, a gem of architecture and of urban planning, as well as a place where artists, cultural workers and scientists work, a city famous for its hospitability and its openness. The location of the city, in particular its proximity to the wonderful landscape of Roztocze as well as its proximity to the Eastern border of the European Union, is a source of economic and touristic development.
