Lublin Castle

Local name: Zamek w Lublinie

The picturesque castle now houses the Lublin Museum with a rich collection of works of art, among which the monumental "Union of Lublin" by Jan Matejko stands out. It is also worth visiting the chapel with beautiful Byzantine frescoes and exhibitions presenting collections of numismatics, militaria, decorative art, archaeological and ethnographic.

 

The Lublin Castle is the biggest attraction of this city, presenting its beautiful face today thanks to the restoration. The chapel of the Holy Trinity is the only part survived from the original foundation of the castle, which was built in the Middle Ages. For this reason, the frescoes in it are considered extremely valuable and worth seeing. In addition to the aforementioned monuments and the work of Matejko, you can also see pictures of other Polish artists - Malczewski, Podkowiński, Michałowski, Wyspiański, Boznańska, Fałat and others.

 

 

The building from the fourteenth century has not survived to the present day and the castle walls, which we know, were built in the 20s of the nineteenth century, hence their Renaissance character. After the reconstruction, for 130 years the castle served as a prison, after which adaptation works were carried out and the castle was transferred to museum purposes.
