Regions of Poland

  • Lower Silesia (Dolny Slask)

    Lower Silesia (Dolny Slask) is the southwesternmost voivodeship in Poland, and is a popular tourist destination. It is sandwiched between the Sudeten mountain range to the west and the Silesian Lowlands to the east. In the Lowlands, which is the warmest region of Poland according to temperature averages, you will find the region`s largest city, Wroclaw, which is home to the University of Wroclaw, one of the country`s most prestigious universities, as well as the UNESCO World Heritage Site Centennial Hall.

  • Silesia (Slask)

    The Silesian Voivodeship, in south-central Poland, is one of the richest areas of the country and the most densely-populated, fitting nearly five million people in an area roughly 80% of the size of the U.S. state of Connecticut. The capital of Silesia (Slask in Polish) is Katowice, one of the most industrialized cities in the country, and definitely one of the wealthiest. Other important cities in the region include Bielsko-Biala and Czestochowa.

  • Lesser Poland (Malopolska)

    Lesser Poland (Malopolska) is a region that roughly corresponds to southeastern Poland, between Silesia to the west and Red Ruthenia in the east. Much of the region lies in the Vistula River basin, north of the Tatra Mountains. The `winter capital of Poland`, Zakopane, is the largest town in the Tatra Mountains and is known for skiing in the winter and hiking in the summer. The hilly and mountainous terrain in the south blends into valleys in the north, as traditional wooden stave churches, castles, and other important landmarks dot the landscape.

  • Lublin Voivodeship

    Lublin Voivodeship is located in southeastern Poland, close to the border with both Belarus and Ukraine. The capital of this region is Lublin, a city that is over 800 years old. It is known for Lublin Castle, one of the oldest castles in Poland open to the public, and the Crown Tribunal building, where the final say in judicial matters were heard when Lublin was part of the Crown Kingdom of Poland. The town of Zamosc is located 55 miles to the southeast of Lublin. It is one of the best-preserved examples of a Renaissance town in Europe, and one of the few outside modern-day Italy to survive to the present day.

  • West Pomerania (Zachodniopomorskie)

    West Pomerania (Zachodniopomorskie in Polish) is the northwesternmost voivoideship in Poland, and sits roughly in the west-central portion of the historical region of Pomerania, which stretches as far west as eastern Germany. It is one of the most popular tourist regions in Poland due to its position on the Baltic Sea coast and due to other attractions like the Wkrzanska Forest, Drawa National Park, and Wolin National Park. The capital of the region is Szczecin, located on the Oder River. Settled in the ninth century, it is one of Poland`s oldest cities. Other historic cities in the region, well-known for their Gothic architecture, include Koszalin and Stargard.

  • Pomerania (Pomorze)

    Polish Pomerania (Pomorze) 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 a very rural place, characterized by lakes, farms, valleys, fields, forests, and small villages and towns. Many of Poland`s oldest cities and towns, such as Gdansk, Szczecin, and Torun, are located here.

  • Kuyavia-Pomerania

    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.
