1. Lublin: Private Guided Walking Tour of Old Town with Tasting
Lublin is the largest city in south-eastern Poland. It is home to a long and fascinating history and stunning Polish architecture. It was here where the Lublin Union was signed in 1569 - a pact that sealed the constitutional union between the Kingdom of Poland and the Grand Duchy of Lithuania creating a free republic associated with a single Parliament, an elected king, a currency, and ethnic and religious tolerance. Start your private tour at the Litewski Square with a multimedia fountain famous for water performances entertaining Lublinians and the guests in the season. Your guide will be waiting for you with your name by the Lublin Union Monument (plac Litewski, 20-080 Lublin, Poland), reminding of the former glory of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. Walk along Krakowkie Przedmiescie, the main Lublin promenade, to Krakow gate, a gateway to the Old Town, housing the Museum of the History of the city of Lublin. Continue to the Trinitarian Tower and the Cathedral with acoustic sacristy, treasury, and crypts. Admire historic, richly decorated tenement houses. Check-out the Lublin Monastery of Dominicans with the Basilica of St. Stanislaus and the building of the Old Theatre. Delving into the alleys and streets of the Old Town, find the Stone of Misfortune, a mural with a panorama of Lublin, the Gothic Tower, the Hartwigs alley, and many other hidden treasures. Stop by the Lublin Market Square, a building of the former Crown Tribunal to which the legend of the Devil’s Paw is connected. Explore the Lublin Underground Trail. Continue your walk to the Castle, passing the Grodzka Gate, being a passage between the Christian and the Jewish town. Currently, there is the “Grodzka Gate — NN Theater” Centre. Be amazed with the Holy Trinity Chapel and world-unique Byzantine-Ruthenian frescoes inside. Climb up the Donjon, one of the oldest buildings in Lublin with a great viewpoint.
