Lublin – biggest academic centre in Eastern Poland
There are five public universities of International renown and four private colleges whose students come from Poland and abroad. The large number of students makes Lublin a city full of young and dynamic people whose creative potential is used to the benefit of the city by various research centres and companies that are looking for new technologies. Lublin’s beauty and its rich history attract not only young people but also artists looking for inspiration. Thanks to its theatres, art galleries, philharmonics, and museums, Lublin is the beehive of cultural life in this part of Poland that hosts many International Festivals each year.
Caring for intellectual capital is very important for the development of the city. "Study in Lublin" is a project implemented by the Lublin City Hall aiming to integrate the local academic community, encourage foreign students to study in the city and stimulate the multicultural exchange in the scientific environment.
The project also involves close cooperation of the local government, business and higher education institutions. Within its scope an online portal was made available at www.study.lublin.eu, providing information for foreigners on the offer of higher education institutions from Lublin and application proce-dures. It is available in four language versions: Polish, English, Ukrainian and Russian.
Lublin is a city of young and dynamic people, open to the world
Each year, from early spring till late autumn, cultural life in Lublin thrives thanks to its theatres, galleries, student clubs and cafés, concerts and festivals. International theatre festivals, guitar festivals, International Days of Documentary Cinema “Crossroads of Europe”, Central Europe theatre Festival, “Neighbours”, International Competition for Young Violinists, and the International Folklore Festival, these are only some of the artistic events that attract many well-known artists to Lublin, which turn its streets into a truly multicultural place where many languages of the world are spoken.
Lublin’s alternative theatre is also thriving thanks to groups such as Scena Plastyczna KUL, the Centre for Theatre Practices “Gardzienice” or “Grodzka Gate – NN Theatre” Centre. Their unique projects have already won international acclaim. Also the student clubs, cabarets and theatres are very popular. Once a year, all the students of Lublin’s universities, take control of the city and the Student Culture Days begin.
Sport and leisure
Depending on the season and the weather, Lublin offers a number of unique attractions for all lovers of active leisure. Zemborzyce Artificial Lake, gives one the opportunity to enjoy leisure time by the lakeside, without much travelling time.
There is a swimming pool complex, with paddling pools, as well as playgrounds, for children. The nearby restaurant serves great food and thanks to a kayak rental store, you can go on a trip around Lublin by way of the Bystrzyca River.
Those who are interested in more extreme sports can try water skiing. Several bicycle lanes are waiting for fans of cycling. One of the lanes runs along Bystrzyca River and around the lake. In the city limits of Nałęczów, through Wąwolnica, to Kazimierz Dolny, there is also a 62 km-long cycling trail.
During winter, you can skate at the artificial skating rink or use the 250-meter ski lift. There is also a smaller lift for beginner skiers, near the Globus Sports Hall. All the necessary equipment is available in the ski rental near the hall.
Lublin inspires business
Modern Lublin is undergoing a makeover. New transport, road and technical infrastructure is being built. The international Lublin Airport, situated 10 km from the centre of Lublin, was officially opened in December 2012 and serves such destinations as London, Oslo, Dublin, Frankfurt, Milan, Rome, Stockholm, Gdansk, Warsaw and Wroclaw.
