Great PaulVDV 2020-08-11 2:45

Hello Mariusz,
So you managed to travel abroad during these corona times.
I heard a lot of Zamosc but have never been there.
Photos of this beautiful city always show a most interesting architecture. Also this picture here. However, I didn't know that these were Armenian houses. I don't remember seeing this kind of architecture in Armenia.
The facades look wonderful in the different colours and with the many architectural decorations while the terrace has an excellent setting.
For some reason I have the impression it was a very warm day then.
Best regards, Paul

Default To PaulVDV: Armenian houses

Hi Paul,
I consider myself very lucky that I traveled to Poland in those difficult times and so far it seems that nobody from my family here or there has any covid symptoms.
These houses are of course in Renaissance style. Very elegant and decorative. The whole town was build in this style from scratch.
These particular houses belonged to rich Armenian merchants who settled in Zamosc.
I didn't go much into demographics of this region but our guide told me as well that before WWII it had also 50% of Jewish population, similarly to my home town. Germans have murdered vast majority of them.

On the day we visited the temperature was way above 30. It was very hot indeed and that is why people tend to hide in the shadow.

Kind regards,
Mariusz
