Key significance of climate change

The aesthetics of road infrastructure solutions also constitutes an important topic, as the beauty factor should reflect the nature of the investment and, at the same time, be a showcase of road infrastructure construction.

Why Lublin?

With about 350,000 inhabitants, Lublin is the largest Polish city on the right side of the Vistula, it is located about 160 km southeast of Warsaw. The city of our Conference is reffered to as the city of three cultures. This is due to its rich history and location at the intersection of important trade routes in Europe. The city was an important economic and political center of old Poland, that is why in 1569 the Polish-Lithuanian Union was concluded just there.

After the II Word war, the city became a large academic and industrial center. Five academic institutions were established, including the renown Catholic University of Lublin, whose lecturer was the future Pope John Paul II and the Lublin University of Technology.

Preserved elements of architecture and monuments are related to three religions: Catholicism, Judaism and Orthodoxy. You can visit various temples: the cathedral and other Catholic churches, the Orthodox church and Yeshiva Chachmej or Jewish synagogue and college for future rabbis. The monuments in the city are authentic witnesses of their times, because they luckily survived War practically intact. During your stay in Lublin, visit the Lublin Castle and the Holy Trinity Chapel. You can go for a walk in the picturesque streets of the old town and visit the renovated Litewski Square. After a successful tour, it is worth visiting one of Lublin's restaurants. There are many of them and they offer a variety of cuisines from around the world.
