Well preserved buildings and cobbled streets

The old town is closed to most traffic. It is a small area with lots of bars and restaurants and some beautiful buildings. A good place to wander around

Lublin Old Town is wonderfully charming and quaint. There are plenty of restaurants, cafes and bars, many with outdoor seating perfect for coffee or cocktails and people-watching. Although there were some cars it was very quiet and felt mostly pedestrianised. Great place for a wander ...

A very nice place to walk through. Not very big but once you enter the old town through the Krakau gate, you discover a beautiful piece of Lublin.

But needs a massive investment to bring the area back to life as there are plenty of empty decaying buildings. That said it does have a vibe to it. There are plenty of plaques in Polish and English revealing famous past residents.

It depends what you are looking for. It's a lovely area but not touched by tourism yet. There are some interesting spots like underground tourist route, museum in Lublin castle, tiny museum of pharmacy, theatres, churches, art galleries and others. People hang out mostly in the area because there are many restaurants, cafes and pubs. Old town is pretty small... More

Very pretty old town with great architecture. Lots of the building's façades were beautifully restored (sadly not all of them). You can find many cafés and restaurants with local food and coffee in vicinity as well as the Lublin Castle and a few museums.

Here there are some very good restaurants, where you can taste local dishes, and you can see some beautiful churches, the market square and entrance doors of the old city. Also you can see a castle,... More

Some beautifully restored buildings and some still awaiting renovation, but the overall impression of this place is fantastic. Great hotels (Alter, Grodzka 20), very good restaurants and pubs open until late night hours. The Old Town is small and human friendly.
