The city of Lublin was established in the Middle Ages and held an important role in the Polish history ever since. That’s the place where Polish-Lithuanian commonwealth was established, that’s where major Polish univesities are located, that’s also where second biggest Nazi camp was (but that’s the subcject for another entry…)
The old town is small but cosy and really picturesque. It’s full of small crafts shops, pubs where you can drink a delicious local beer Perła (now popular all over the country:)) and just relax. There’re also many beautiful churches with a fine examples of baroque interiors. You can climb the bell tower of the Cathedral to admire the amazing view over the old town and beyond.

On the other side of the old town you can find the castle dated back to 12th century (but it was destroyed along the way). Inside there’s the Gothic Holy Trinity Chapel with unique frescos. Just now the Chapel was named one of the 7th new wonders of Poland.
Below pictures I took in Lublin back in the sunny day of June 2008.
