Information about the event

The event is organised in August every year and its aim is to show the culture of the nations which have participated in building the identity of the town, its tolerance and receptiveness to new ideas during the four hundred years of its existence. Unfortunately, what is now left of these nations is only memory and very few mementoes.

The disappearing world of Armenian, Jewish, Tatar, Italian and Orthodox culture is revived for several summer days in the scenery of Renaissance backyards of Zamość Old Town and in front of the Town Hall.  With its richness and uniqueness this world comes back also in concerts of folk music, theatrical performances, plastic arts events and stories about the good old days and about what is left of them in Poland. It comes back also in shared cooking, so common once, of exotic dishes, typical of national cuisines and in soirees, lectures and artistic workshops. A walk around Zamość in the company of Zamość guides during which tourists have a chance to see the places connected with a given nation is a permanent part of the event.

Organisers: Polish Ethnological Society Branch in Zamość, The Zamojskie Museum
