Lublin in numbers

Lublin in numbers


Lublin is the largest city in Eastern Poland, and the capital of the Voivodship (province) of Lublin; it is the ‘Gateway of the European Union into the East’, the capital of Eastern Poland.

The city is located in Eastern Poland near the northern end of the Lublin Upland. The valley of the river Bystrzyca divides the city into two parts, different in terms of their landscape: the left bank, with its varied natural topography, deep valleys and old loess gorges, and the right bank which is part of the Świdnicki plateau. Historically, Lublin belongs to Lesser Poland and is the capital of the region of Lubelszczyzna. A great advantage of the city is its location close to the eastern boarder of the European Union.

Important international transit routes meet here. Thanks to the constantly developed transport infrastructure, convenient road and rail connections with Central and Southern Poland have been established, while Lublin Airport, opened in December 2012, ensures easy access to key European cities and transport hubs: Dublin, Frankfurt, London, Oslo and Stockholm.
