Tenement houses in Zamość

Tenement house in Zamość
The tenement houses with the arcades are the most characteristic features of architecture of Zamość. Up to 55 tenement houses were preserved in Zamość, and this is the biggest number of that kind of buildings in Poland. The arcades were introduced by the main designer of the city Bernardo Morando. Morando also established the general design of the tenement house. Apart from arcades, attics and wide, horizontal frieze under the windows on the first floor were obligatory.

Rektorska Pharmacy
One of 55 beautiful Renaissance tenement houses is called Rektorska Pharmacy. The Rektorska Pharmacy is one of the oldest pharmacies in Poland. It was founded in 1609 by Szymon Piechowicz, a physician, professor and Rector of the Zamojska Academy. Each of successive owners was a pharmacist and the pharmacy has never stopped to sell medicines to residents, remaining at the same location, in a corner of the Great Market Square. At the end of the 19th century the pharmacy ran Hygienic Station, i.e. one of the first laboratories which tested the quality of food and water.
Visitors can learn more about the rich history of the Rektorska Pharmacy by visiting its Exhibition Room. (Lern more: Wikipedia)
