Situated on the outskirts of the town. Huge area to walk around - take good shoes. Best time to visit - spring or early autumn, watch out in summer - could be very hot, take a cap and water with you, in winter - could be very cold, windy - it's an open area, no trees. The best way to... More

Maybe not the most popular or famous polish city, like Warzawa, Krakow or Gdansk, but certainly a place with great experiences. A thriving old city, with many good restaurants, fair prices, not many tourist traps, historic places, including the nazi extermination camp Majdanek, which is well preserved. Been there 4 times, and will go back.

Allow yourself sufficient time to fully explore the entire property and you will be assured of a very compelling experience. I found my visit here every bit as moving as my visit to Auschwitz-Birkenau. Be prepared for a significant amount of walking but it is well worth it. Unfortunately, the staff at the museum were absolutely appalling. I cannot believe... More

This was well worth visiting. Entry is free and there's a lot to take in. We simply walked around the complex. There's no need for a guide as signs in the complex and the museum are very good (in Polish and English). The memorial to the victims, which takes the form of an immense mound of ashes of some of...

Majdanek was a Nazi German concentration and extermination camp established on the outskirts of the city of Lublin during the German occupation.This place was not destroyed as the war was ending so most of the camp is still in its original state.A must go if you are in Poland.

We arranged a private guide and learnt so much about the history of the area.Sometimes you must visit places where atrocities occur so we never let it happen again to any race. Very few people as opposed to Auschwitz .It enabled you to spend more time without a rush.

This is one of the smaller concentration camps in Poland with the bigger one in kraków however this one is also worth to see! This is where the film the reader was also filmed.

Better to go when it's not raining as there's lots of outdoor walking to do. The exhibitions were interesting and arresting without going into too much detail so I didn't get bored. It feels a bit like being on a film set: we've seen these places so often on the big screen that it's hard, at least for me, to... More

This is a must for any traveller to Lublin. It is very preserved and shows the cruelty of the nazi regime. A must see.
