Krzysztof Żuk, Mayor of Lublin:
“Lublin is the largest and most economically developed city in Eastern Poland. Located on important and constantly developing transport routes connecting Western and Eastern Europe, it is an attractive location for business as well as a thriving academic centre.
However, it’s the city’s human capital that holds the key to unlocking the city’s potential. Lublin is a city of young, well-educated and entrepreneurial people, and as an open and tolerant city, it attracts students from the farthest corners of the world, being the most popular university city after Warsaw.
It is a friendly place for both residents and tourists, which offers high living standards, good quality education and various forms of leisure activities.”
In the Lublin Subzone of the Euro-Park Mielec Special Economic Zone, 70 investors employ over 4,450 people at companies located across 128 hectares.
Until the partitions at the end of the 18th century, Lublin was a royal city of the Crown Kingdom of Poland. The Old Town dates back to the 14th century.
