Armenian City well
The Armenian well is situated opposite from the City Hall and holds an octagonal pavilion over it
Polish king Vladislav IV Vasa ordered to build a well so it would become a main source of drinking water for residents. The well was drilled in a solid rock and according to different researches is from 40 to 55 m long. The legend says that, Armenian merchant Narzes bequeathed his money to build a city plumbing system. After his death a lot of money was stolen and it lasted only for drilling the well. Unfortunately, the water in the well was salty and unsuitable for drinking. As a result people called the well “the monument of corruption”. For a long time the well pavilion was used as a warehouse, nowadays it is an exhibition hall.
