Jerusalem of Polish Kingdom - Jewish Heritage in Lublin
1 day tour (6 hours)
Lublin, along with its royal castle, is one of the oldest cities in Poland. Situated in the centre of the pre-war borders Poland, today's Lublin is the biggest city on its eastern border. Jewish life flourished here since as early as the establishing of the city in the 14th c. Within a few centuries the city became known as a centre of religion and academic life for Polish Jews, and was even called by some the Jerusalem of Polish Kingdom. The development of the Jewish city was put to stop by the outbreak of WWII. The destruction of life was followed by the destruction of the majority of the district. Therefore, the tour around the former Jewish district of Lublin is a walk in a non-existent city, with some traces of memory, and only a little of its surviving material heritage.
