Browar Zamość is the city’s best place for some good locally brewed beer in a cosy atmosphere. There are three types of beer on tap – Pszeniczne (wheat beer) Ciemne (dark) or Jasne (light), all home-brewed. The location is also excellent – just a few minutes walk from the famous Old Town Square. The venue sometimes has live music and special events. Beers are often introduced for seasonal periods, like the zielone piwo (green beer) for St. Patrick’s Day and a hot winter beer known as grzane piwo.

Seta i Galareta, Zamość

For a real treat and a glimpse of Poland’s communist history, Seta i Galareta Zamość fits the bill. It’s a stylish bar aimed to represent the PRL era in Poland, when the country was known as Polska Rzeczpospolita Ludowa and under the control of the Soviet Union. Inside the bar, you can find memorabilia from those days (record players, gramophones, empty tins of old Polish food products, etc.) and it feels like a warp back in time. On the food menu, try the local Pierogi Ruskie (dumplings filled with potato and onion) or the Tatar wołowy (raw steak with vegetables and egg).

Bar Copacabana, Zamość

Bar, Polish, Pub Grub

Corner Pub, Zamość

Corner Pub is exactly that – a pub on the corner. The well-designed main bar consists of wood and owes its style to a British or Irish style pub. The bar even has Murphy’s Irish Stout on tap. However, this is a strictly Polish venue with some great Polish dishes on the delicious food menu. Try the Pierogi z kapustą i grzybami (Polish dumplings with cabbage and mushroom), the Śledź (herring) or the Gołąbki wigilijne z grzybami (cabbage rolls with mushroom). Wash them down with some local vodka or the local beer Zwierzyniec or the Irish stout.

Another bar with a sports theme about it in Zamość is Klub Bilardowy Metro. This is a bar that advertises itself as a pool and cafe club. The venue has pool tables and dartboards, and competitions are held in both sports. There are three decent beers on tap and a range of spirits. The food menu tends to be more like pub grub than regular Polish dishes, so try the pizzas and burgers in a relaxing venue.

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
