PL564 - Old City of Zamość (1992)

Brief Description

"Zamosc was founded in the 16th century by the chancellor Jan Zamoysky on the trade route linking western and northern Europe with the Black Sea. Modelled on Italian theories of the 'ideal city' and built by the architect Bernando Morando, a native of Padua, Zamosc is a perfect example of a late-16th-century Renaissance town. It has retained its original layout and fortifications and a large number of buildings that combine Italian and central European architectural traditions."


"公元16世纪,军事将领简·扎莫希奇建立了扎莫希奇古城。古 城位于黑海地区连接西欧和北欧的商贸道路上。古城以意大利的“理想城市”理论为雏型,由帕多瓦当地的建筑大师波南多·莫兰多设计建造,是16世纪晚期文艺 复兴城镇的完美范例。扎莫希奇古城完美地保留了16世纪末具有文艺复兴时期风格城镇的最初风貌和要塞堡垒,与此同时还保留了大量的、充分体现意大利与中欧 建筑风格完美结合的建筑物。"
