Lublin Voivodeship is located in southeastern Poland, close to the border with both Belarus and Ukraine. The capital of this region is Lublin, a city that is over 800 years old. It is known for Lublin Castle, one of the oldest castles in Poland open to the public, and the Crown Tribunal building, where the final say in judicial matters were heard when Lublin was part of the Crown Kingdom of Poland. The town of Zamosc is located 55 miles to the southeast of Lublin. It is one of the best-preserved examples of a Renaissance town in Europe, and one of the few outside modern-day Italy to survive to the present day. Lublin Voivodeship once had a very large Jewish community, which was nearly completely wiped out with the Holocaust. The Old Town of Lublin, once a national hub of Jewish life, is a national historic district, and the Old Town of Zamosc, where the Zamosc Old Synagogue is located, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. In recent decades, more and more American Jews have visited Lublin Voivodeship each year attempting to connect with their ancestral roots.
