Easy to get to (23 bus or 156 trolleybus) from town centre. Free entry. Long walk (perhaps 4-7km) if you do the whole site - allow 2-4 hours.

Entry by a new visitor centre informing how and why it existed. Be prepared for lots of walking, the site is very big. There are interesting information boards describing what your looking at. If your visiting Lublin then it's a short bus ride out to...More
