Culture and tourism


Lublin is well-known for its picturesque location on hills, rich multicultural history, beautiful historic architecture as well as vibrant cultural and student life. The city was granted the municipal status 700 years ago and for ages it has been a multicultural melting pot where people from different cultures and nationalities mixed, worked and lived together. Lublin`s history is reflected in its architecture, especially the stunning Old Town and the city`s landmark, the Holy Trinity Chapel, making the City a perfect touristic destination.

Nowadays Lublin is a hospitable modern city of a relatively small scale as well as an administrative and academic centre with rich cultural offer. Thus, it has rightfully been named and promoted as a City of Inspiration and it is definitely worth visiting.
