Information

The massive edifice of the Town Hall dominates the Rynek. Its contemporary silhouette, with a 52-m tower and monumental fan-shaped double stairway date back to the second half of the 18th century. Although it seems to be a perfect structure, the left-hand side of the facade is 130 cm wider than the right-hand side. The difference is so skillfully concealed that only a very careful observer can notice it. In summer, at noon a trumpeter plays a bugle call from the Town Hall tower only towards three directions of the world. Apparently, Jan Zamoyski did not like Krakow and forbade his trumpeters to play the bugle call in the direction of this town.

The Town Hall was and still is the seat of the town council and on the ground floor there is Tourist Information Centre in Zamość.
