Lublin Lublin is one of the biggest cities in the east-central part of Poland. The city was founded by settlers on the Czwartek hill in the VI century. Already in the X century Lublin was a fort-town. Multiple protective facilities have been made to save this place from dangers from the east. Only during World War I Lublin becomes the part of Germany and Austria-Hungary.
The so called Old Town of Lublin is one of the most beautiful places where visitors will enjoy the combination of various architectural styles. Numerous stone houses and temples have survived here since ancient times. The historical part of the city is represented by the area between Cracow Gate and the castle. Here are located such sights of Lublin as old Town Hall with the Crown Tribunal inside it; Fathers Dominicans Kostel, which has been originally designed in the Gothic style, but has acquired Renaissance motifs during restructuring; Lublin museum that has been used as a prison, now only a Gothic chapel reminds of those times, the interior of the chapel is decorated with precious frescoes featuring the Russian-Byzantine style.
Not far away from Lublin are located such interesting tourist sites as: a Naleczow spa center specializing in heart diseases, an industrial center named Pulawy, and a town keeping numerous old Renaissance houses, houses of famous artists, an impressive Renaissance Kostel and the ruins of an ancient castle.
