Some background information about Lublin:

LUBLIN - GEOGRAPHY

At only 175 kilometers from Warsaw, Lublin is not only worth visiting solely for its monuments. It is a centre of one of the eastern provinces of Poland, and with a population of 350,000 it is the biggest Polish city east of the Vistula River.

Lublin is located on the Lublin Upland. The Bystrzyca river divides the city into two diverse parts: the western side is made up of undulating hills with a number of interesting valleys and gorges; while it is flatter on the eastern side. The city has great possibilities for recreation for western visitors with its blend of tradition, rural crafts, and a large lake and several forests to wander through.

The attractive festival website is up and running, now in English and Polish:

Alongside the performances are four seminars, taken by Joanna Szmajda and someone called Stuart Sweeney, on the theme of "Dance and Fine Art" in line with the focus of the Festival performances this year. Also there are classses each day taken by dancers and choreographers from the visiting companies, a photography exhibition and a Dance on film strand.

Old town, Lublin

From the Stay.Poland website:

Lublin is undoubtedly worth a visit, even if it attracts fewer tourists than Krakow or Warsaw. Over the centuries it saw Polish and Jewish cultures harmoniously coexisting while the city’s fibre developed. The remnants of Lublin's past deserve exploration, even if the sprawling suburbs might at first restrain you from going deeper. Overcome the temptation of bypassing Lublin, its Old Town is charming, though a little decayed. Besides this, the city offers other attractions, including a wild nightlife and a multitude of friendly restaurants and cafes.

Stuart adds: "Hmm....note to self: must ask about this "wild nightlife""
