Lublin city break – History and Culture

 

Lublin is the largest city in Eastern Poland. With 5 public universities it is perceived as one with the youngest population. It is also an important regional cultural capital with calendar full of exciting events.

Lublin has not suffered major destruction during the World War II. The Old Town felt a victim more during communism period from inefficient municipal authorities and inhabitants with criminal past. But after the political transformation in early 90 last century, historical parts of the city started to regain their previous glamour.

With our tour we would like you to feel how the time goes by from Middle Ages to modern European city.
