Timeline of Lublin

Last updated

The following is a timeline of the history of the city of Lublin, Poland.


Middle Ages

From the 6th century people started erecting their settlements on Grodzisko hill (Today called Castle Hill). Later the settlement had facilities for business and was servicing the Gord. [2]

In the eighth century, Hill Old Town was a place where a tribal stronghold was built.

Lublin is one of the oldest cities in Poland. According to both Dlugosz and Kadłubek the founding of the city took place in 810. The first preserved sources mention the name of the city however, only from the XII-XIII .: "de Lubelnia" (1198). "Lublin" (1224). [3] Sources are documents of ordinary official operations - the document attesting to the creation of the Lublin archdeaconry unit, forming part of the diocese of Kraków.

Information appeared in "History of Poland" published in the fifteenth century by Jan Długosz. The city was besieged by Prince Roman. They ceased besiege and retreated when behind the line of Vistula River troops of Leszek the White began to gather.

It seems that the Dominicans came to Lublin already around 1230, although the origins of their activities are covered by the darkness of history. Usually setting Ordo Fratrum Praedicatorum indicated a high rank of the city. It is known that years later they built their first wooden church.
