03 Lublin dla dzieciMUSEUMS AND ATTRACTIONS

Lublin Open Air Village Museum
Strolling through the charming grounds of the Lublin Open Air Village Museum it's hard to resist an impression that we have moved back in time. We can find old farms here, wooden Catholic and Orthodox churches, a real smithy, and a wooden mill. Another attraction are animals such as goats, hens, or horses. The Lublin Open Air Village Museum is a quiet, diverse, and green enclave of an old village, located within the borders of Lublin. On summer weekends various shows of old trades and everyday activities are organised. www.skansen.lublin.pl
