The first city of my Europe's Life

Majdanek was a terrible place, a death camp where almost 80,000 people, around 60,000 of them Jews, were deliberately gassed to death. Although it is significantly smaller than Auschwitz, in some ways it's even more horrifying, because while much of Auschwitz was razed by the Germans and it now feels quite museum-like, Majdanek has been preserved in almost its original...

We visited both Auschwitz and Majdanek concentration camps and believe Majdanek has more buildings remaining to see and gives you a better perspective on history. Memorial is impressive. Remember to be respectful, shorts and bare shoulders are frowned upon. We visited in winter and spring, so if you want to get a complete picture suggest visiting in both seasons.

I was in a lot of death camp and places connected with death in Poland and all over the world. Majdanek is one of this kind of experience, you should see, even if it might be hard, but for sure it's thought-provoking. It's good to buy a small map (around 3PLN) to have some general informations and plan of this... More

I didn't know where our tour group was going the morning we arrived at Majdanek Death Camp. When we approached the huge stone carving I noticed a pit below it and the tour guide said that "yes, it symbolizes the thousands that died and were burried in the pits". It just so happened that we were there on all Saints... More

For me, definitely one of the best concentration camps I've been too, for sure ahead of Auschwitz. It is free to enter and you don't have thr possibility of getting a guided tour, but I can guarantee you won't need it. You can get a free map of the camp from the visitors' center and then, as you walk through... More

Majdanek is one of the best preserved concentration camps left from WWII. This is the first one I've ever been to, and it is an experience I will not forget. You can read all you want about the atrocities committed by the Nazis during WWII, but nothing compares to seeing where it actually went down. Our guide was very friendly... More

Majdanek is a must see when in the area. You could go to other similar places but this camp will sure make an inpression on you for life! You can learn about its activities in the second world war. It is exactly as it was and there is a museum where there is lots to read and learn. You will... More

Majdanek death camp surely deserves a visit although it is not popular as other sites such as Auschwitz-Birkenau. The camp is well preserved and contains gas chambers and a crematorium (partially reconstructed). Printed guides available at the visitor's centre are useful for the visit, though there is plenty of signs and explanations along the route. Admission is free but you... More

Took a day out of our week in Poland to drive over to Lublin and see Majdenek. The monument at the entrance is in need of maintenance (Beware of tripping over loose kerbs + paving) The visitor building is modern + the staff are helpful. It is a quite large site + very open. Exhibitions are housed in some of... More
