Lublin is the capital of the Lublin Region and the biggest town in Eastern Poland. Lublin’s Old Town is full of charm with its cobbled narrow streets and traditional style architecture and Renaissance burgher houses. Everything here is seeping with history and character. In fact, this area is sometimes referred to as “Little Krakow”. There are more than 100 historic mansions and other buildings to marvel at. For a different perspective, you can try the underground tourist trail, which visits old wine cellars and shop basements from various points in the city’s history to give you a more intimate look at the past and present ways of life in Lublin.
