Zwierzyniec & Roztocze National Park/Poland

Introducing Zwierzyniec & Roztocze National Park

Given what a raging success Jan Zamoyski’s model city Zamość turned out to be, it’s no surprise that his country getaway also came up trumps. Zwierzyniec (zvyeh-zhi-nyets), 32km southwest of Zamość, is picture perfect. In the 16th century, the visionary Zamoyski created a game reserve in this area, which has since become a national park. The family’s summer palace was erected soon afterwards, around which a small town began to grow. A chapel was later built on one of the tiny islands opposite the palace, and remains the cherry on the cake of Zwierzyniec (since the palace was dismantled in 1833).
