At your Warsaw hotel, greet your guide and small-group, and board a minivan destined for Lublin — a former competitor for the European Capital of Culture prize. On arrival in eastern Poland’s cultural hub, embark on a guided tour of Lublin’s charming Old Town — admire colorful buildings interspersed with theatres and galleries brimming with art.
As you explore, you’ll receive an introduction to the creative heritage of Lublin from your guide. Then, travel to the outskirts of Lublin to visit the former Nazi concentration camp at Majdanek. Hear of how numerous prisoners were executed here, and spend time reflecting quietly at the Monument of Struggle and Martyrdom.
After browsing exhibits in the Majdanek National Museum, you’ll revitalize with lunch at local Polish restaurant before returning to your Warsaw hotel.
