As we were following a walk we didn't realise about the key holder (the walk takes you onto Hotel Llan later) and therefore could only see the periphery. Sad (understand the rationale) that it needs to be locked.

The history of Jews in Lublin traces back to the 14th century. They were awarded an autonomous district, established a renowned Yeshiva and later became the center for Hassidism (very abridged history). Sadly, no Jews reside in Lublin today (there is rumor that perhaps 8-12 still are alive, but we could not locate anyone to confirm this) This cemetery houses... More

Seem to be few Jewish graveyards in such good condition as that at Lublin, I've only few better, strangely one was in Hamburg in Germany. Sadly this still has to be locked for fear that those of short memories might desecrate it. Still its not too much trouble for the keyholder to let you in (See other reviews for info)... More

My grandparents are both buried there so we paid homage. There is a nice walk and picnic tables to have lunch or can walk to town and have lunch at cafe nearby. Well maintained and some very old markers. A lot of history!!

What's the point of showing off that you have one of the most amazing matsevas in your city's Jewish cemetery if you can't freely enter one. The key to the cemetery is in some... Jewish hotel nearby? I didn't like the fact that I have to go around and ask id someone could kindly let me in - I believe... More

Place with very good preserved old Polish and Russian graves with spectacular sculptures. On the 1st of November the entire place is bathed in light from thousands of candles as Poles visiting graves this day lying wraths and flowers and lighting a candle on each grave.

It is a sentimental journey into the past. We were lucky to get the ohel of the Seer of Lublin open for us. Do not miss this site when you are in Lublin. We had a cell phone number to the man who takes care of the site, so he opened the cemetery for us.
