We’re very lucky to have to have arrived in Lublin (brand new airport – look out for the photos soon!!) in the midst of full on Polish Winter. Yep, it’s -10 degrees and a gorgeous snow all around. Still a bit too dry (very frosty!) to stick and make snowmen but perfect for sledging, skiing and of course scenic photos in the snow!
Lublin’s medieval castle has it’s own rich history, dating back from the 12th century, through having the beautiful Holy Trinity Chapel built in 1418, to being a royal residence in 1520, the place of the Parliamentary union with Lithuania in 1569 and a prison during WW2 … then finally becoming the seat of the Lublin Museum in 1957, where it still remains (if you get a chance to visit, don’t miss the table with the devil claw imprint!).
