Lublin Travel Guide

by our Poland expert Paul Baderman
 
Paul BadermanLublin lies in Eastern Poland and has consequently suffered invasions and occupation from Tsarist and Soviet Russia to Hitler’s Germany in WW II. The Old Town centre reflects centuries of history with some of Europe’s finest historic buildings and monuments such as the magnificent Krakow Gate. Lublin Castle is more grimly impressive. Now a museum, it was a prison for the Tsarist secret police, the SS, the Soviet commissars. The huge Lublin Jewish ghetto bore some of the worst aspects of the Holocaust, to which there is an inspiring black stone memorial. Lublin workers, too, helped found the Solidarity movement even before the Gdansk shipyards. A beautiful city, despite its sombre and painful past it has high hopes of becoming Europe’s capital of culture in 2016.
