It is inaccurate to say that the Soviets "liberated" Poland from the Nazis in 1944. Rather, the Soviets ousted the Germans and in turn occupied Poland. This led to the creation of the People's Republic of Poland, a satellite of the Soviet Union, headed by an oppressive government which was in no way sanctioned by the Polish people.

Hey As far as I know, the poorest region in the EuropeanUnion is now located in Rumania or in Bulgaria! Can someone check this out and correct the mistake if it is the case?! Thankyou for your cooperation.

1944 definition...[edit]

Well, I have tweaked the sentence so that it hopefully covers a range of political views on the matter.

Nightlife[edit]

(From the Perspective of an Australian Student living in Lublin for 12 months) The Lublin night-life, while seemingly non existent if compared to the more exotic locations of Western Europe, Asia, South America, North America et caetera; is still there. While not as fashionable, or vogue as the Warsaw clubs have to offer (2-2.5 hour by car), Lublin still has a variety of Modern clubs, which due to the regions financial poverty, are incredibly cheaper than Warsaw pubs/clubs, Warsaw clubs average Beer to range to 16 zloty in an expensive bar to 9 zloty in a popular bar. Lublin beer by average is 4-6 zloty for beer in both clubs in Pubs, considering you buy Polish beer, local beverages are 'significantly' cheaper (Cheapest beer the author found in a pub/club environment was 3 zloty, The following listed are clubs/pubs/activities that the author has participated in)

- MC: Named after the same person (I think) as UMCS, due to the street it is located on. MC is quite probably the largest and most popular club in Lublin. Located within the CBD, and just a short walk to the Catholic University and UMCS various campuses, it is situated in an 'underground' location. Also within MC is a quality restaurant. The club consists of 3 primary rooms. The first room consists of the largest bar in the club, with a large dance floor and seating situated around the walls and border of the room. The Music for this room depending on the night et caetera, is mainly music found on the Top 20 playlists of international music, including Polish Hip Hop, and popular dance music from the 1990s and occasionally 1980s. The second room is the 'lounge room' with no specific music played here, the noise mainly comes from the vast amount of people sitting down and socialising. To get a seat here, one has to be either early, or patient. There are two bars. One rather small 2.5m long bar and another larger one approximately 4-5m of length. The 'lounge room' consists of bar stools, high rise tables, low rise tables, chairs, padded seats with no backing and seats situated on the borders of one side of the room with full padding. The second room situated in the end of the club, is a club entirely devoted to Techno Music in all its forms; House, Drum n Bass et caetera. This room has a bar slightly larger than the 'lounge room' bar, yet slightly smaller than the Front room bar. This room's popularity depends from night to night, yet is usually filled with a large quantity of fake smoke and widely spaced dancing (compared to the crowded front room). The room contains high rise bar tables, and on one length of the wall approximately 4 tables for seating capacity each of 6-8 people. MC's prices depending on Night, but by average are 10 zloty for Student, 15 zloty for non student, and if Women come before 9:00pm they get in for free. Men still have to pay.

Lublin, Wisconsin - sister city?[edit]

Can I ask about citation? On the list on the city's website there is no this name: [1] - see section Poznaj Lublin and subsection Miasta Partnerskie (Polish) or [2] and section Lublin's Sister Cities (English). Bocianski 20:17, 25 February 2007 (UTC)

Neutrality[edit]

The section on tourism is biased in favour of the city with quotes like ".....is really worth a visit" and ".....beautiful architecture". While the comments may be true, they are more suited to a tourist guide and not to an encyclopedia. I will remove the biased parts in the next few days if no-one disagrees with me.

Personally, don't find it so eye harming. But you may be right, just do it properly not to change the context of the section. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Modrzyk (talkcontribs) 11:16, 5 December 2008 (UTC)

B-class review failed[edit]

This article does not meet B-class criteria, due to poor structure (lots of lists, quotations, some sections could use merger or splitting) and insufficient inline referencing (there are entire sections unreferenced). --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| talk 16:50, 15 July 2011 (UTC)


as of 14 Sept 2009, the current version of the site seems like tourist guide/advertisment to me, to sweet to be true. as lubliner, i love this city but i think that the article is way too biased towards promotion of the city, rather than delivering honest and true information —Preceding unsigned comment added by 83.28.168.36 (talk) 23:44, 13 September 2009 (UTC)
