On your next trip to Lublin make sure to consider our Lublin car hire services as your main means of transportation through and around the city. The city was of great importance during the Middle Ages being an important trade center as well as a city with a big military significance since it was positioned between the capitals of Poland and Lithuania and back in those days that was an important thing to consider.
The city doesn’t unfortunately have its own airport so you’ll most likely have to either land in Warsaw or in Rzeszow and then either take a bus or a train down to Lublin, however you could just as well employ our car rental services and drive down to Lublin on your own and then just drop the car off at the local Lublin car rental office when you’re done.
Once in the city you will be amazed at how many sights there are fighting for your interest, time and money, the Castle of Lublin and the Chapel of the Holy Trinity being chief amongst the main attractions that the city has to offer.
The Castle you will see today is actually rebuilt and restored, it’s been that way since the 19th century and that’s why it features many neo-Gothic elements. In the yard of the castle you will be able to visit a 13th century Romanesque donjon as well as the aforementioned Chapel. The interior of the Chapel is a must-see as it hold very rare, Byzantine wall paintings dating back to 1418. There is also a museum on the premises which you might find interesting.
Modern Lublin still has its old medieval city gates up and standing, these are the Grodzka Gate and the Kracow Gate. The first one was rebuilt in 1785 and it was also known as the Jewish Gate as it separated the Jewish District from the Old Town; the second one has been standing since the 14th century when it was originally built in the Gothic style but then rebuilt during the Baroque period. The gate clock has been standing there since the 16th century and has become a symbol of the city.
These are of course only a few of the things that you can see and do while in Lublin so make sure to consider our Lublin car hire services.
