Reviewed By sh29 - Felsted, United Kingdom

Visiting the site is well worth a couple of hours to understand the grand scale of this camp. You truly get a feeling of mixed emotions when you’re walking from different chambers. We would have been happy to pay or even give a contribution had this been required. It’s hard to believe this was a mere 75 years ago.

The Lublin Open Air Village Museum

The Lublin Open Air Village Museum was established in 1970. Set in 60 acres of picturesque land it is one of the largest open air museums in Poland. The area is composed of several parts reflecting particular geographical units of Lublin region. Our Museum preserves the historic images of villages, manors and provincial towns with their regional characteristic features of buildings and settlement layouts. Field crops, Gardens and livestock enrich the open air museum exhibition. Customs, rituals and daily work of people living in the past are recreated thanks to the abundance of exhibits. At present, traditional rural architecture of Lublin Upland, Roztocze and Vistula River Region is represented, whereas Podlasie as well as Bug River Region are still under construction. The image of the past is complemented by a provincial town and a manor house accompanied by a park. What you may find particularly appealing about the Museum are the 17th century Roman Catholic church and th

Visited in October 2016 wit hour 8 years old daughter. Very enjoyable trip, lovely scenery, friendly staff, who, when engaged, was explaining history of ancient polish village and allow us into some of the buildings. 4 hours was definitely not enough, didnt try on site little traditional restaurant, which we regret, but it was about to close when we reached. The buildings and displays were very real, there were few polish historic movies filmed in the museum and we understand why. We will definitely come back for full day when back to Lublin! Free parking, frequent buses, cheap entry and soo much to see!

Lublin Old Town

Reviewed By Chokk - Frederiksberg, Denmark

Lublin Old Town has all the ingredients of become a future tourist magnet. The whole area is just cozy with cobbled streets and stunning buildings. When the motorway from Warsaw finishes tourist busses in the hundreds will arrive and the remaining buildings that needs caring will become hotel satellites for the big chains. Its truly cheap today and with loads of potential. Great place for strolls and photo possibilities.

The Lublin Castle

Reviewed By Laser8London - London

We weren't sure about visiting here as we found another couple who said there was nothing to see, how wrong could they be. It is a splendid building to look at from outside with a large inner courtyard which is available for everyone to see and walk around. You can then pay to visit the inside which houses a variety of rooms which depict a history of the area and of the castle, an exhibition of coins and several galleries of artwork. Outside you can walk up the tower and take in the views, also, you are given a timed ticket to view the chapel, it was truly magnificent, you are provided with tour notes in a variety of languages. Later we went back in the evening to a concert that was staged in one of the art galleries.

The Grodzka Gate Theatre Centre

Reviewed By Yael023 - Tel Aviv, Israel

Powerful and remembered experience is visiting this unique theatre-museum-archive. The transformation of "normal" theatre to a theatre combined with a place of memory is impressive. The former of the place and staff must be praised. The architecture of the museum and the exhibitions' display sharing the theatre spaces are very interesting too.
We were impressed by thousands of metal bookshelves with memorrial files of Jewish people and houses who were all wiped out at the Holocaust. We were impressed from the new Mission (maybe impossible mission) of finding identity to each of the hundreds of photos of Jewish inhabitants photographed before the outbreak of the war, 1914 - 1939. This collection was found only in 2012 !
One of the emotional moments was standing in front of the full scale photo of Henio Żytomirski, last photo taken shortly before the War. Henio was a Jewish boy that was born and brought up in Lublin and at the age of nine was executed in a gas chamber at Majdanek concentration camp. Henio has become a symbolic child by an annually educational project “Letters to Henio”, letters that are sent by children to Henio. Henio has a face and blessed project on his memory. Facing Henio's innocent photo, my thoughts went for 1.2 million Jews children that murdered. Most of them have nor photo nor memorry. As my mother's brother who was exacetly the same age of Henio. Nor photo nor face. Vanished at the war.
One can feel the truly attempt of the museum and the staff to take the responsibility for the memory of the Jewish town and its people. We took an English tour at 11:00. We were only 2 participants. Our guide was very informative and patience to all our questions.
Acording to website: visit: Monday – Friday. Exhibit entry at 9:30, 11:00, 12:30, 14:00
Blessed place!

Fontanna Multimedialna Lublin

Reviewed By Berend_Engelbrecht - Oegstgeest

Plac Litewski in Lublin has recently been redesigned and now has a large pedestrian area, including a group of Fountains called "Fontanna Multimedialna Lublin". I arrived on a very hot summer day and the Fountains drew many children playing in the cool water.
In the evening the Fountains are lit by multicolored LED beams underneath each Fountain, regularly changing their colors and underneath the biggest set of Fountains forming patterns of light. I saw many young couples enjoying the sight on this warm summer night.
The Fountains draw many people, children as well as adults, and I think they are an excellent addtion to the center of Lublin.
