Location and history

Lublin, Poland's largest city east of Wisła, lies on the Bystrzyca River on the Lublin plateau at an altitude of 170-230 meters – The city is the administrative center of Lublin County. Lublin is considered to be the oldest settlement in Poland. The first settlements date archaeologists to 6th-7th centuries. Favorable geographical conditions and a location on the main trade routes have meant that Lublin has played a significant role from the early Middle Ages on contacts between the East and the West.
In 1569, the Polish-Lithuanian Real Union, called the Lublin Union, was adopted here, and in 1578 the Crown Tribunal was moved to Lublin – it was the supreme court of appeal for the nobility in the entire Małopolska province.
Following the regained independence of Poland, in 1918, the Catholic University of Lublin was inaugurated.
Twice in its history – albeit briefly – Lublin has served as the capital: the first time in November 1918, when the interim government of the new republic was formed here; the second time was from August 1944 to January 1945, when Lublin was the capital of the liberated territories, also called Lublin-Poland (Polska lubelska).
After World War II, Lublin grew into a strong urban community with considerable economic and scientific potential.
In July 1980, the first workers' demonstrations in Lublin were a warning of the later landmark events in August in Gdańsk and Szczecin.
In 1990, the first free local elections took place.

Lublin is a friendship town with Nykøbing Falster in Denmark.
