The colourful, charming capital of the Lubelskie province attracts tourists in droves thanks to its fascinating history, cobbled streets and vibrant architecture. Bursting with museums, historic buildings, traditional flavours and with legends hidden among its streets, lanes and tenement walls, this dynamic city is fast becoming one of Poland’s most popular.
City of Inspiration
It’s impossible not to agree with the motto chosen to promote the capital city of eastern Poland and the Lubelskie province. For centuries, Lublin was a city of key importance for relations between Poland and Lithuania. In fact so important it was, that it was right here in Lublin in 1569 where the papers were signed to form the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. This historic union took place in a castle from Casimir the Great’s time that was unfortunately destroyed during a 17th-Century war. The original building was replaced with a new castle, built in an Anglo-Saxon neogothic style, which served as a prison for 128 years; first for the Tsarist authorities, then the Second Republic of Poland, followed by the Nazis and finally, the Stalinist secret police. Today, as the Lublin Museum, it is a cultural institution and the city’s number one historic building. It’s hard to find a building with more stories to tell!
