Information

The market owes its name to a close vicinity of a water body called Zalewa Wielka, which used to prevent access to the fortress from the south. The market was probably never used as a marketplace. Originally, its shape was that of a square, whose side was 50 m and Moranda Street divided it in half. Tenement houses with arcades inhabited by eminent Zamość residents, such as Jan Zamoyski’s secretary, used to stand here. At present the Wodny Market is a green square with a fountain and the houses which surround it were built at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries.
