Lublin The Essential
The history of Lublin is inextricably linked to that of its Jewish community. Every stone in its historic centre seems to convey past memories, some peaceful, others horrific. Property disputes have slowed restoration work around the market square, and the poor condition of some areas reinforces an air of melancholy. Despite this, Lublin is an appealing place thanks to its lively cultural scene, youthful student population and rich history.
