Great Market Square in Zamość

Town Hall in Zamość
The most prominent building in Zamość is the Town Hall, built at the turn of the 16th and 17th centuries. The façades were built in accordance with the Mannerist proportions, regular divisions and excessive architectural décor. The 18th century witnessed the construction of a guardroom and a fan-shaped double stairway that were built in front of the building and a slender dome with a lantern was added to the top of the Town Hall tower. The Town Hall stands at the foot of the Great Market Square regarded as one of the most beautiful 16th-century squares in Europe. The square is surrounded by a complex of arcaded houses that were built by the richest Zamość merchants. Today City reflects the cosmopolitanism of the Renaissance by displaying refurbished arcades, the flamboyant frames of the rooftops, statues set in the exterior walls, rows of Venetian columns and an array of colorful facades.

  9. Would not be surprised if this was considered a city in the 16-17th century. This is quite large (for that time). Beautiful Renaissance architecture:)
