Kuyavia-Pomerania Vacation Packages


The Kuyavian-Pomeranian Voivodeship (Kujawsko-Pomorskie in Polish) consists of two traditional regions of Poland, that of Kuyavia to the west, with the royal city of Bydgoszcz as its capital; and that of Royal Prussia, a portion of East Pomerania, with Torun as its capital. Today, the two cities make up a joint metropolitan area and are co-capitals of the Voivodeship. Bydgoszcz is situated on the Brda and Vistula rivers and is well-known for its eclectic collection of neo-Gothic, neo-Baroque and neo-Classical buildings, earning it the nickname of `Little Berlin`. Torun is one of the oldest cities in Poland, having been settled for nearly 1,200 years. The city`s Medieval Old Town area, unscathed in the wake of World War II, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Torun`s most famous native son is Nicolaus Copernicus, and its most scrumptious delicacy is gingerbread.

Cities of Kuyavia-Pomerania

Regions of Poland

  • Warsaw

    Poland`s capital is a metropolis of three million people, a far cry from the small village settled around the market square 700 years ago. Warsaw has survived indignity and strife; three partitions of Poland; a carpet-bombing during World War II; and later the Communist regime. Today Warsaw is one of Europe`s hubs of art, culture, entertainment and gastronomy.

  • Lower Silesia (Dolny Slask)

    The southwesternmost voivodeship in Poland is a popular tourist destination. It is sandwiched between the Sudeten mountains and the Silesian Lowlands. In the Lowlands, which is the warmest region of Poland, you will find the region`s largest city, Wroclaw. Closer to the Sudetes you will find Jelenia Gora, boasting the oldest spa district in Poland and multiple ski resorts.

  • Silesia (Slask)

    Silesia, in south-central Poland, is one of the richest areas of the country and the most densely-populated. Cities include the capital, Katowice, one of the richest cities in the country; Bielsko-Biala, known for its Art Nouveau architecture; and Czestochowa, a popular Catholic pilgrimage site known for the monastery of Jasna Gora and the Black Madonna painting.

  • Lesser Poland (Malopolska)

    Lesser Poland, corresponding roughly to southeast Poland, sits in the Vistula river valley and the Tatra Mountains. The `winter capital of Poland`, Zakopane, is the Tatras` largest town and is a great place for skiing and hiking. The capital of Lesser Poland is Krakow, whose Old Town was designated one of the very first UNESCO World Heritage Sites in the 1970s.

  • Lublin Voivodeship

    Lublin Voivodeship, close to the border with Belarus and Ukraine, is full of beautiful historic sights. The capital of this region is Lublin, known for Lublin Castle, one of the oldest castles in Poland open to the public. Zamosc is located 55 miles to the southeast of Lublin, and is one of the best-preserved examples of a Renaissance town in Europe.

  • Greater Poland (Wielkopolska)

    Greater Poland (west-central Poland) is known as the country`s `cradle`, as it was the area of the country that saw the rise of the very first Polish royal house. Poznan, the region`s capital, is one of the oldest major cities in Poland. The very first Roman Catholic cathedral in Poland was built here in 968 CE, located on Cathedral Island in the middle of the Warta River.

  • West Pomerania (Zachodniopomorskie)

    West Pomerania is the northwesternmost voivoideship in Poland. It is one of the most popular tourist regions due to its position on the Baltic Sea coast and for other attractions like the Wkrzanska Forest, Drawa National Park, and Wolin National Park. The capital of the region is historic Szczecin, settled in the ninth century and located on the Oder River.

  • Pomerania (Pomorze)

    Polish Pomerania covers much of the northwestern portion of the country, including a large portion of the country`s Baltic Sea coastline. Pomerania has a few large cities, but for the most part it is rural, with lakes, farms, valleys, fields, forests, and small villages and towns. Many of Poland`s oldest cities and towns, such as Gdansk, are located here.
