Attractions in lubelskie region

Kazimierz Dolny

Small town with a very specific climate. Kazimierz Dolny, one of the most representative places in the Lubelskie region is known as an artistic city. Here the movie festivals are organised and it is not difficult to meet famous artists from all over the country. The beautiful streets and the main square with a characteristic well in the middle create a romantic scenery. That is why the town was "an actor" in a lot of films and a great number of native and foreign tourists love it. Walking between renaissance tenement houses, among which a few can be admired especially because of sculpture decorations on their fronts, is almost like a journey by time machine. It is really worth trying.

Kozłówka - The Museum of Zamoyski Family

Here the time stopped just before the war. Nothing was damaged during the fights between 1939-45, fortunately the whole complex survived also the years of comunism. It makes the palace and the park so unique - the rooms inside the building look as if they were left by their inhabitants only for a moment. Rich, gilded furniture and copiousness of old portraits move us to the times when the Zamoyski family were living here. Among the pictures you can find the image of one of the former owners of the palace, Zofia Zamoyska, who was chosen the most beautiful woman of Europe in her times.
The palace is surrounded by a park, which consists of forest and a French garden with hundreds of roses.
In the former coach-house the exhibition of Socialist Realism Art is placed. The gallery shows the collection from the first half of 1950s and it contains over 1600 sculptures, paintings, drawings, posters and fabrics being a sorrowful part of history of Poland.
The museum is open from 29 of March till 13 of December 2009.

Zamość

The monument of Polish history and the monument of UNESCO - Zamość is a town which really deserves those titles. Planned perfectly by an Italian architect, Bernard Morando, Zamość is an example of a renaissance city. Not as majority of Polish towns, which were changing styles as the time was passing, Zamość was built as a whole in the XVIth and XVIIth century. An impressive cenral square (100 m long and 100 m wide) surrounds the town hall with its characterictic stairs. Beutifully renovated houses are placed around the square and in the neighbouring streets. And - what is also significant for the city - like at the beginning, the city is now govered by the president Marcin Zamoyski, who comes from the family of Zamość founders.
