A Postcard From Lublin

In need of a short break, I left my day-to-day routine in Warsaw Thursday afternoon and headed 170 km southeast to Lublin, the largest city in southeastern Poland (with around 350,000 inhabitants) and the site of the Union of Lublin, which created the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth way back in 1569. read more…
