"Lithuanian Square" Top 5 Page for this destination Lublin Favorite Tip by HORSCHECK
Lublin Favorites: 14 reviews and 25 photos
Favorite thing: The large Lithuanian Square (plac Litewski) got its name from the Lithuanian gentry who stayed here during the debates about the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth (Union of Lublin) in 1569.
The Union of Lublin is commemorated by the Lublin Union Monument. The cast iron obelisk can be found near the south western end of the square.
Not far from the obelisk stands Lublin's oldest hotel. Hotel Europa was built in Polish Renaissance style in the late 19th century.
The Jozef Pilsudski Monument was erected in 2001 near the south western end of the Lithuanian Square. He was the Chief of State of the second Polish Republic and he stayed several times in Lublin.
Nowadays the Lithuanian Square with its large green areas is a popular recreation area for the local people.
