Zamość boasts a stunning Old Town Square and City Hall, and has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The city sits just 43 kilometres from the Ukraine border and is beginning to attract a new wave of tourists. When night falls on this charming city, a lively crowd head to this list of fine bars and pubs.
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).
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.
For a no-thrills Polish pub experience here in Zamość, you can’t go wrong with Piwiarnia Warka. It is a chain of bars all over Poland and the Zamość venue is a warm and friendly place to have a pint of beer with some pub food. Beer on tap is of course, Warka, as the Warka brewery own the bar. The food is well prepared pub grub, such as pizza and burgers. Live football is shown on the TV screens.
