Zwierzyniec 2011-11-23
Zwierzyniec is the northern most town of the Roztocze National Park.


The Zwierzyniec settlement was established in the 16th century by the Zamoyski family. One of the features here is an artificial lake with a number of small islands - one of them contains monuments of the
hounds belonging to the Polish Queen Marysieńka Sobieska (primo voto Zamoyska).On another island the Zamoyskis built a baroque chapel, which became later the main church of the local Catholic parish.
It is now known as the St John Nepomucene's parish church - renovated and expanded in early 1960s by father Dutkowski. The access to the chapel island is now via a bridge. During the Second World War, Nazi Germans set up a transit camp in Zwierzyniec, with many victims sent to the death camps.
