Majdanek is notable for being captured by the Red Army nearly intact.

We had a very knowledgeable guide (driver) on this tour called Martin and are impressively knowledgeable and skilled. We had a wonderful day and we all recommend a trip to beautiful Lublin and an otherwise dark and gloomy part of the history of the Majdanek Nazi camp. Horrible story which unfortunately is true, incredible enough. Highly recommend GetYourGuide to anyone who is planning to go here.
Very interesting Tour. Excellent Guide with a deep knowledge of history
