The town of Lubaczów is known for its extremely interesting cultural heritage




For years it was home to Poles, Jews and Ruthenians. As a result the area features a mixture of cultures characteristic for the Polish-Ukrainian borderland area known as Kresy. Attractions worth visiting here include the Museum of Kresy, located in a building of an old granary from the early 1800s, located at 4, Sobieskiego St. Permanent expositions on display here present artefacts related to the history of the town and the region, material culture of the nearby rural areas as well as the arts and crafts of the Kresy region; the museum also holds temporary exhibitions. Oficyna Gallery, situated within a former manor park, also holds exhibitions.


Organized here from 1993, Triennial of Polish Contemporary Art of Drawing is a nationwide competition designed to highlight new artistic phenomena.


During the summer months the co-cathedral in Lubaczów hosts International Organ Concerts with performances of world-famous musicians.
