Lublin - pearl of the East

For many ages on the borders between Western and Eastern Europe Lublin played an important cultural role. When in 1317 Lublin was granted civic rights, it strengthened its position among the important towns of Poland and Europe. The celebrated Lublin Fairs attracted merchants from the Caucasus and Black Sea regions, Lithuania and the interior of Russia. In 1569 the Lublin Union treaty was signed – binding Poland and Lithuania into a one body state in existence until the end of the 18th century. Krakowskie Przedmieście, the representative street of Lublin, is the favourite place for social gatherings and entertainment for the town’s inhabitants and visitors. There are many coffee shops, artistic basement bars and restaurants to choose from. uses cookies. By using our services, you're agreeing to our Cookie Policy. Read more..
