Majdanek Nazi camp
On the outskirts of Lublin there is a historical place of nazi concentration and extermination camp – Majdanek. It is a unique example of camp located near population center. The camp was going to be the source of a free workforce for the realization of the plans to build a German empire in the east. Prisoners came from nearly 30 countries, mainly Poles and Jews, but also Russians, Belorusians, Ukrainians and others. The tragic history of the Lublin concentration camp came to an end on 23rd July 1944 after the Red Army entered the city. Now you can visit Majdanek National Museum, Monument of Struggle and Martyrdom at Majdanek, Mausoleum containing ashes from the victims of Nazi hate and some remains of the camp.

Lublin Old Town
The charming Old Town of Lublin is picturescuely placed on the hill. The most recognizable object in the Old Town is Krakow Gate. It was raised by King Casimir the Great. The gate was the point of arrival for visitors from the city of Krakow.
Lublin is the most important cultural centre of Eastern Poland. The city was competing for the title of the European Capital of Culture 2016, because it presents an idea of integration, tolerance and dialogue between cultures of the West and East. The amount of cultural festivals, galleries, theatres, places for artists is very impressive. Lublin is also a very important academic centre with two famous universities: Maria Curie-Skłodowska University and John Paul II Catholic University of Lublin (KUL). When summer ends, the city becomes filled with students.
Lublin is also known for its Jewish heritage. Before World War II the city used to be a thriving Jewish cultural and academic centre, it even used to be called “Jewish Oxford”. As Hebrew language was widely cultivated in Lublin, it is here that one of the first Hebrew printing houses in Poland was founded in 1578. Lublin is also home to the former headquarters of the famous Chachmei Lublin Yeshiva – one of the biggest Academies of the Sages in the world. The former Jewish district is located at the foothill of Lublin castle and is separated from the Old Town by Grodzka Gate (also known as Jewish gate). Some buildings in this area have remained in their original form to this day. An important place in the Jewish district was the Castle Square – there you can see a stone plague commemorating the layout of the old district.
