Not without reason is Lublin called “little Krakow”. It is the most important cultural center of Eastern Poland. The city is also known for its Jewish heritage. Narrow streets and buildings from different time periods create a unique atmosphere of the city. Majdanek Nazi Camp is a rare example of Concentration and Extermination Camp located near population centre.

Lublin is the most important cultural center 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 center 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 center, it even used to be called “Jewish Oxford”. As the 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 plaque commemorating the layout of the old district.
During the 2-hour tour you will see Lublin's top sights: the Old Town, Lublin Castle with the Chapel of Holy Trinity, Krakow Gate, Trinity Tower (the highest viewing point in Lublin), and more.
Alternatively, you can focus on Jews-related landmarks: Chachmei Lublin Yeshiva, Old Jewish cemetery (its oldest remaining tombstone dates back to 1541), the Jewish Gate, Old Jewish Hospital, location of the Old Synagogue, and more.

Majdanek/Lublin Tour Was Amazing
I can’t say enough good things about AB Poland Travel. I booked the Lublin/Majdanek tour with them and was super impressed. My driver Pawel was so well informed and made sure I knew everything I needed to know en route to Majdanek and the city of Lublin. I actually had a private tour of Majdanek and learned so much about the tragic history of this death camp. It is the best preserved of all the death camps and will haunt you for days. We then tou red the city of Lublin which was fascinating to learn about. AB Poland Tours did a superbly fantastic job. ... [read more]

Incredible experience at Majdanek and Lublin
AB Poland Travel delivered a memorable experience for me from beginning to end. I booked this tour about a month prior to my travel to Warsaw for the purposes of nurturing my interest in history and furthering my research for a personal project. The tour company was very responsive. Being that it was my first time in Poland and I was booking this tour as a solo female traveler, I asked questions to make sure I would be comfortable, and they were very responsive, reassuring, and accommodating. I ended up being the only participant, so I enjoyed a private tour, and they were able to accommodate an earlier start time so I could get back a little earlier. The driver, Matteus, arrived at my hotel a few minutes early. He was polite, easygoing, and a very safe driver! He confessed that his normal route was to Auschwitz, so instead of asking him questions about Majdanek, I ended up chatting with him about Polish culture, politics, and economics, which provided for a very easy and engrossing 3 hour ride to Majdanek. Once we arrived at Majdanek, I was greeted by the tour guide Patricia. She was impressive - a wealth of knowledge. She knew all the key dates of events that took place at the camp, the names of key figures at the camp, the details of daily life at the camp, details about every section of the camp, and fascinating stories about successful escapes from Majdanek. ...
