The cathedral has preserved beautiful paintings dating back to the years 1755-1757. Its visitors can also see beautiful sculptures of saints created by famous masters of the 18th century. Today, part of the old cathedral is occupied by a thematic museum, which contains a valuable collection of religious artifacts. A bell tower of the church is the tallest structure in the historic district offering wonderful panoramic views of the city.
Not far from the cathedral is the Town Hall building, the construction of which was completed in 1828. It is still used for its intended purpose. The seat of the mayor, as well as the offices of various municipal organizations, are currently located in the historic building. At the beginning of the 17th century, there was a large monastery on the site of the Town Hall, which was almost completely destroyed by fire in 1803. The building was damaged beyond repair, so 20 years after the devastating fire, it was decided to build a new town hall in its place. During the Second World War, the Town Hall was partially destroyed but quickly restored in the postwar period. Copyright www.orangesmile.com

The wonderful Zamek w Lublinie is one of the most visited city attractions. The castle is located in the very heart of the city, the first defensive structure appeared in its place in the 12th century. The first major renovation of the fort took place at the beginning of the 16th century. The newborn castle turned out to be so sumptuous that it was subsequently used as a royal residence. Its spacious halls have seen the most important meetings and chic balls. Over time, the castle has completely lost its original defensive function.
A new stage in the history of the castle began in the 19th century when it was partially destroyed during hostilities. After the war, it was converted into a prison for political criminals. In the 20th century, the historic building underwent a complete renovation. Today, the castle houses a very interesting museum. It keeps collections of antique furniture and works of art.

A vivid classicism monument is the Pałac Potockich, which can be seen on one of the central streets. The 18th-century castle is notable for its unusual architecture - the building was built in the shape of a horseshoe. Beautiful stones were used during its construction. The palace has remained almost unchanged since its foundation.
Initially, the palace was privately owned by one of the local wealthy families, and at the end of the 18th century, it was transferred to state ownership. A barracks for soldiers were founded in the building, and later it housed a warehouse and a prison, which functioned for more than 30 years. During this period, the palace lost almost all of its values. After the end of World War II, it remained in desolation for a long time. In 1994, the historic building was transferred to one of the local universities.
