Bełżec is a village in eastern Poland in the Lublin voivodeship. It is mainly known for the Bełżec extermination camp; see Holocaust remembrance.


Get in[edit]

Sometimes there are trains running to Bełżec from Lublin. These trains run very irregularly so it is really important to check in advance whether they are operating on the desired day or not. The train ride takes about 3 hours. The Bełżec train station is located closer to the extermination camp compared to the actual town center. If travelling from Lublin taking the bus to Tomaszów Lubelski (a regional town north of Bełżec) is a different and more regular option. There you can take a small bus to Bełżec.

When traveling by car then Belżec is located right next to the main road (17) linking Lublin with the Ukrainian city Lviv.

There are rather large parking plots near the entrance of the extermination camp site, as well as near to the train station, which is a few hundred meters further.
