Yup. On the Polish pages, there are some great pictures of the huge current construction efforts, rebuilding large parts of the fortifications, turning some minor squares from parking lots back into nice urban spaces, ...

This beatuiful town has some great touristic potential.

Wonderful town for the whole life living!

For some reason I've thought about Ouro Preto in Brasil.

I think the townhall in Ouro Preto is similar to our townhall.

Actually, Zamosc looks just like a colonial city somewhere in Latin America. Maybe tha's because of colourful renaissance and baroque buildings, and squared squares.

Zamosc was not hit in the war, right?

I don't think it suffered much damage. I believe it was used as a base by the Nazis, and I think Himmler wanted the town re-named and much of its renaissance architecture to be demolished, building more "German" architecture in its place. Good thing the plan never came to fruition before the war ended.

Franciscan Church in the 19th century and now

Btw, the church looked even better in the 18th century (see below). It was considered the largest Baroque church in this part of Poland.

Zamosc in the 18th century

Zamosc around 1900

Like most of Polish cities, Zamosc lost its importance and former beauty during the partitions of Poland.

Mainly under russian partitions because german and austrian were relatively good for economic growth.

Austrian Partition (Galicia)
"Economically, Galicia was rather backward, and universally regarded as the poorest of the three partitions. There was much corruption during the elections, and the region was seen by the Viennese government as the low priority for investment and development. It was a vast, but constantly struggling region with inefficient agriculture and little industry. In 1900, 60% of the village population (age 12 and over) couldn't read or write. Education was obligatory till the age of 12, but this requirement was often ignored. Between the years 1850 and 1914 it is estimated that about 1 million people from Galicia (mostly Poles) emigrated to United States. Galician poverty to this day has survived in Polish language as an expression (adage: bieda galicyjska or nędza galicyjska)."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Austrian_Partition#Economy

Of course, Zamosc was in Congress Poland, which was slightly more developed than Galicia.

Zamosc is a gem! Also looks off the beaten path, does it receive a lot of tourists?

It's well known among Polish tourists but not so much outsiders.
In south eastern Poland I would say Lublin gets the most attention. Not heavily damaged in the war.
