Lubelskie – eco-positive space
Situated in eastern Poland, bordering with Ukraine and Belarus, the Lublin Region is a worthwhile place to discover and explore. Its varied landscape, along with the rich cultural and natural assets, provide for a memorable and exciting holiday experience. The Lublin Region boasts a clean environment with pristine nature protected within two national parks, 17 landscape parks and 87 nature reserves, and 122 Natura 2000 European protected areas.
Adding to this natural wealth is the great cultural heritage of a mosaic of many eastern and western traditions and religions. Some of the most popular historical sites and monuments include the “ideal” Renaissance city of Zamość, the picturesque hotbed of painting and filming Kazimierz Dolny, the Old Town and Castle in Lublin, Cathedral Hill in Chełm, the castle and park complex in Biała Podlaska, the Palace Complex in Puławy, the magnate residence in Kozłówka, the Orthodox monastery in Jabłeczna, the horse stud farm in Janów Podlaski, the health resort park in Nałęczów, etc.… These historical assets are supported by the ever-expanding range of new tourist products, such as family theme parks, themed villages, farmsteads and trails, as well as festivals, fairs and a variety of cultural events, often in the open-air settings of towns and cities like Lublin, Zamość, Kazimierz Dolny, Nałęczów, Zwierzyniec and in other interesting places in the region.
The Lesser Poland Gorge of the Vistula River, the Podlasie Gorge of the Bug River, the Powiśle region, Polesie, Roztocze, Puszcza Solska (a primeval forest), the Janów Lubelski Forests – these provide some outstanding opportunities for hiking, biking, kayaking and horse riding. Facilitating this are marked trails and paths – the Lublin Region is one of Poland’s leading regions in terms of the number and length of marked tourist trails that connect the most attractive places of the region.
Leisure opportunities in the Lublin Region are further backed by a robust network of hotels, motels, guest houses and agritourism farms, offering their visitors regional delicacies, and also providing them with more and more enticing holiday packages which often tap into local traditions.
