Lublin is one of those beautiful Polish cities that may be large in size, but offers the feeling of a small town. Once you’re there, you feel like you’ve always been there. It is also one of the few larger cities in Poland that had its historic city center preserved in the war, giving visitors the chance to take a step back through time.
Lublin is also a city where the East and the West have always seemed to meet. This is especially true with its religious offerings, where motifs and frescos of Catholic, Byzantine, and Orthodox influence can be found. Visit the Holy Trinity Chapel and you’ll find all three takes on faith working in harmony there.
The Lublin Museum is one of the premier museums of Poland. Permanent collections include artwork from the 17th century, coins and medals from Polish territories to the 10th century, and foreign armaments from the 14th century.
There is a filmmaking past that can be found in Lublin as well. Numerous cinemas are found throughout the city, complemented by a series of theaters, so that an evening of entertainment is available throughout the year. Several movies have been filmed in the area as well.
A visit to the historic city center lets you see why the city is often called “Little Krakow.” It is a place with a vibrant music scene and thriving nightlife.
If you love to explore, but also want to have a good time in other ways, then Lublin is the place you will want to be. Come for the atmosphere and you’ll want to stay because you’ve fallen in love with the city.
