The Lublin Castle is an original aristocratic residence in the Polish city Lublin . It is located on a small hill northeast from the Old Town.


Originally, there was a 14th century castle on the site where the today’s chateau is built. It was a residence of great importance in its time. Throughout years, the castle lost its position and its remains were used for building a prison in 1820, which lasted until 1944. More than 100, 000 people went through it during the Nazi occupation, most of them were afterwards transported into death camps.

The Lublin Museum

Today, Lublin Castle is the residence of the Lublin museum which offers a rich art collection. There are expositions of paintings, silver, porcelain, woodcutting and armoury. A part of the exposition is dedicated to Polish painters and offers paintings from the 18th century to contemporary works. You will find here valuable pieces of art made by famous artists, such as Jacek Malczewski, Witkacy or Tadeusz Kantor. One of the most interesting exhibits is the putative print of devil’s hand from the 17th century. That brings us to the local legend about a group of demons who came to help a local aggrieved widow. There is also an unordinary chapel of the Holy Trinity with unique frescos from 1418 in the Lublin Castle complex. The frescos were being restored for nearly 100 years. Today, they are considered, and very likely, the most beautiful wall paintings in Poland.
