Tema Barbash
Everything you always wanted to know about the Polish
film industry but were afraid to ask… Or rather – you could
not find the right source of information. Not anymore. We
proudly present you with the new and updated edition of the
Film Production Guide – Poland 2008.
Joseph Fiennes on the set of Spring 1941 in Lublin. Spring 1941, produced by Opus Film and Praxis
This Guide was designed to help you make the right use of the
opportunities Poland has to offer. It presents its Readers with a
complete and comprehensive overview of the country and its
audiovisual sector, enabling every film professional – be it a
producer, investor, director, art director, casting director – quick and
easy access to all necessary practical information on the
co-production opportunities, locations, legal framework of film
production, addresses and contacts of companies in all fields of
filmmaking, hotels in every area of Poland, data on the market
– down to the exact hours of sunrise and sunset at every month of
the year.
Tema Barbash
This volume is devoted to locations. Are you looking for dramatic
mountain landscape or a serene countryside with horses grazing on
lakeside pastures? Are you looking for cliffs on the seaside or
perhaps a desert (not as big as the Sahara but located much
closer instead)? You’ll find it here. Are you looking for a medieval
castle or a town street filled with Baroque architecture? Or maybe
for a deserted mining town or a 19th century textile factory still
equipped with working machinery? You’ll find it here.

Introduction
Are you looking for a modern city landscape spiked with
skyscrapers, or rather for the post-industrial slums of the city? You
will be amazed to learn that these and many more locations can be
found in Poland, along with comfortable hotels and other facilities
with easy access from abroad.
Poland today has a modern film industry, rich not only in talents but
also in opportunities for successful collaboration: prime, often
undiscovered locations, state-of-the-art technical facilities, skilled
teams in every department of production and post-production,
many experienced production companies specializing in
international projects and a well-developed system of public
support.

Poland
Poland lies in Central Europe, bordered to the north by the
Baltic Sea. The geographic coordinates of Poland are latitudes from
49°00’ to 54°50’ N and longitudes from 14°07’ to 24°08’ E. The
geometrical centre of Europe lies in the vicinity of Poland’s capital,
Warsaw. Spanning 649 km north-to-south and 689 km east-towest, Poland is also the site of the geologic division between the
eastern and western European continental blocks. The total land
area of Poland is 312,685 km2, with a territorial sea of 8,700 km2
and another 1,200 km2 of the inlets of the Oder (Szczecin)
Lagoon and Vistula Lagoon. In terms of area, Poland is the 63rd
largest country in the world, and the 9th largest in Europe. The
total length of Poland’s borders is 3,582 km, whereof (clockwise
from north): 528 km is the coastline, 210 km borders on the
Russian Federation, 103 km – Lithuania, 416 km – Belarus, 529
km – Ukraine, 539 km – Slovakia, 790 km – the Czech Republic
and 467 km – Germany.
Poland is in the Central European Time Zone (GMT + 1), along
with a number of European countries, including Spain, France,
Germany, the Netherlands, Italy, Austria, Slovakia and Hungary.
From March to October Poland observes Daylight Saving Time
(GMT + 2).
Topography and Landscape
Poland lies in the eastern part of the geomorphological region
of the Northern European Lowlands and thus over 90% of
Poland’s area is of a lowland nature. The average altitude is 173 m,
with the highest elevation being the Rysy peak (2,499 m) of the
Tatra Mountains and the lowest depression lying in the northern
region of ˚u∏awy WiÊlane (1.8 m below sea level). There are three
key mountain chains in Poland – the Carpathian, the Sudeten, and
the Âwi´tokrzyskie (sometimes referred to as the Holy Cross
Mountains). At 1,037 km, Vistula is Poland’s longest river. There
are over 9,000 lakes exceeding 1 hectare in size, of which the
deepest are Haƒcza (108.5 m), Drawsko, Wielki Staw Polski,
Czarny Staw and Wigry.
Poland
Location and Area
The Polish landscape is rather diversified, with a layered structure of
geographical regions. The coastline is fairly smooth, whereas the
coast itself usually flat, with occasional sand reefs, water inlets,
sand dunes, sandy beaches and also some precipitous cliffs.
Northern Poland abounds in lakes, with the Vistula river separating
them into two regions – Pojezierze Mazurskie (the plentiful region
often called “The Land of the Great Mazurian Lakes”) in the east
and Pojezierze Pomorskie in the west. In the central part of Poland
are the Central Lowlands, with three distinct regions – Nizina
Po∏udniowowielkopolska in the southwest, the Silesian Lowland
(Nizina Âlàska) in the south and the central Mazovia (Nizina
Mazowiecka). The southern part of Poland is highly diverse in
terms of geology and landscape, consisting of highlands and
mountainous areas. This southern band consists of the Sudeten
mountains (Sudety) and the according highland (Pogórze
Sudeckie), the Silesian highland (Wy˝yna Âlàska), the highlands
surrounding Krakow (Wy˝yna Krakowsko-Cz´stochowska), the wide
hollow of the so-called Nida Trough (Niecka Nidziaƒska) and the
Holy Cross (Âwi´tokrzyskie) mountains. At the end of this highland
belt are the Carpathian mountains, consisting of the following
ranges (roughly west to east): Beskid Âlàski, Beskid Ma∏y, Beskid
Makowski, Beskid Wyspowy, Beskid ˚ywiecki, Beskid Sàdecki,
Gorce, Pieniny, the Tatra mountains, Beskid Niski, and Bieszczady.

General Information
One of the greatest assets of Poland’s nature is its unique
authenticity. The exceptional wild forest landscapes of the
Bia∏owie˝a Primeval Forest (Puszcza Bia∏owieska), some forest
reserves in eastern Poland, as well as the lowland deciduous
forests can no longer be found anywhere else in Europe. Also quite
unique are Poland’s semi-natural landscapes – such as the valley of
the river Biebrza (Kotlina Biebrzaƒska) or the Narew (Dolina
Narwii) as well as other locations, where elements of Poland’s
traditional agriculture can still be found today. Bia∏owie˝a is the only
remaining part of the primeval forest that covered all of Europe’s
lowland areas up until 1,000 years ago. Today this region is
protected as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and Biosphere
Reserve.
The diversity of Poland’s flora and fauna is also unique on the
European scale. Poland has over 2,300 species of wild plants, over
600 species of moss, 1,600 species of lichens and about 4,000
species of fungi. Poland’s wildlife also includes approximately
9
Poland
33,000 species of animals. In addition, there are over 1,500 nature
reserves, 125 protected parks and 23 national parks in Poland, all
serving the purpose of protecting endangered species of plants
and animals.
Government and Administration
The official language is Polish.
Poland is a parliamentary representative democratic republic
with a pluriform multi-party system and a bicameral parliament
elected for a four-year term by proportional representation. Internal
and foreign affair are run by the government, called the Council of
Ministers and led by the Prime Minister. The Prime Minister and his
cabinet are appointed by the President. The president is elected for
a five-year term by general election.
As of 1999, Poland is subdivided into sixteen administrative
regions called voivodships (Polish: województwo). The lower levels
of administrative division are 379 counties (powiat) and 2,478
communes (gmina). The government administration on a regional
level is represented by the voivode (wojewoda).
Poland is an active member of a number of international
organizations, including the United Nations, the International
Monetary Fund, UNESCO, the World Trade Organization, OECD,
the Council of Baltic Sea States, the Council of Europe, the Central
European Initiative (CEI) and NATO.

In 2004 Poland joined the European Union and thus Polish law is
gradually being adapted to comply with requirements set in EU
directives. The supreme act of law in Poland is the Constitution of
the Republic of Poland. Since 2007 Poland is also a member of
the Schengen Agreement.

By air
There are eleven civilian airports in Poland catering for
domestic and international passenger flights. The largest and most
important of these is the Warsaw Frederic Chopin Airport (formerly
known as Ok´cie International Airport). The other airports are in
Krakow, Gdaƒsk, Katowice, Poznaƒ, Wroc∏aw, Szczecin, ¸ódê,
Bydgoszcz, Zielona Góra and Rzeszów.
The Warsaw airport has over 80 regular connections to major cities
in Poland and abroad. In 2007 three national and 39 foreign air
carriers had regular flights to and from Warsaw, including British
Airways, Lufthansa, SAS, Air France, Alitalia and KLM. However, the
largest air carrier in Poland is LOT Polish Airlines.
Polish air transport is one of the fastest developing markets in the
world. The growth rate was greatly increased after Poland’s entry
into the EU and the introduction of low-cost airline carriers, such as
Centralwings, Wizz Air, Sky Europe, easyJet and Ryanair. Poland’s
central location in Europe is also a key factor – any major city in
Europe is a maximum 2-3 hour flight from Warsaw, Krakow or
Gdaƒsk.

Poland
At the request of immigration officers, a foreigner entering Poland
should present means of covering the costs of entering and leaving
the country, as well as the entire duration of one’s stay at an
approximate cost of 27 EUR (100 PLN) per day. This can be
presented in the form of cash (Polish zloty or convertible
currencies), valid credit cards or traveler’s cheques.
When crossing the border, EU citizens are entitled to carry goods
intended for “personal use” without additional taxes or excise
duties. If a traveler can’t present a sensible reason for possessing
large amounts of goods, and customs officers have reason to
believe that the merchandise is intended for sale, it is possible that
the goods will be confiscated, along with the vehicle carrying them.
The following indicative quantities are generally recognized as
intended for personal use: 800 cigarettes, 200 cigars, 1 kg of
tobacco, 10 litres of spirits, 20 litres of apéritifs or intermediate
products (e.g. sherry, port wine), or 110 litres of beer. Travelers
under 17 years of age are not allowed to carry alcohol or tobacco
products.
When the duration of one’s stay in Poland is to exceed 90 days, it
is necessary to obtain a temporary residence permit. This
Currency and Prices
The official currency in Poland is the Polish zloty (PLN) divided
into 100 groszy. The currency comes in banknotes of 10, 20, 50,
100 and 200 PLN and coins of 1, 2 and 5 PLN as well as 1, 2, 5,
10, 20 and 50 groszy.
Poland
Poland’s accession into the European Union and, more recently,
to the Schengen Agreement, resulted in new entry conditions for
foreigners. When crossing the Polish border, citizens of the EU, EEA
and Schengen Agreement member states should hold a valid ID
stating their identity and citizenship. Citizens of the Russian
Federation, Belarus and Ukraine are required to hold ID documents
as well as visas issued by Polish consular offices. The Category C
uniform visa (Schengen visa) allows travel throughout all Schengen
area countries. They are valid for 3 months within 6 months from
the date of issue. Category D are national visas, which entitle the
holder to enter only the Schengen state which issued the visa. All
visas are subject to fees and charges. Only a few categories of
persons are exempt from the visa requirement when crossing the
border. Entry into the Schengen area also requires the final
destination to be stated.
requirement does not apply to persons working in Poland who have
permanent residence in another EU country where they return at
least once a week.

Poland
The most secure way of exchanging currency are banks, although
they offer slightly lower exchange rates and some charge a 2-3%
commission. Banks in Poland are open Monday to Friday, usually
from 9 am to 5 pm, some also on Saturdays until 1 pm.
Every bank in Poland has a network of its own ATMs, although
access to these may be limited in rural areas. All major debit and
credit cards are accepted in Poland – Access/MasterCard, American
Express, Diners Club, Eurocard, JCB and Visa. Most banks in Poland
allow cash withdrawals from credit cards.
Poland is a relatively inexpensive country – food, public
transportation, admission tickets, even accommodation are
considerably cheaper than in Western European countries. Naturally,
prices in major cities are higher than in rural areas. It is safe to
assume some average prices for Poland: a large pizza will cost
about 5 euros; a three-course middle-class restaurant dinner will be
about 15-20 euros; a cross-country train ticket – about 35 euros;
a room in a 5-star hotel – 250 euros.

Poland enjoys a temperate climate of transitional nature
between the continental and maritime. Weather patterns are rather
unstable, especially during seasonal changes and wintertime.
Winters in Poland are usually of the oceanic type with high
precipitation; less common are fair weather continental winters.
Northern and western Poland has a mostly maritime temperate

Poland
The number of cloudy days in Poland is between 60 and 70
percent. The cloudiest period is November, and the clearest months
are August and September. The average annual number of cloudy
days (i.e. when the sky is 80% overcast) is 120-160, and the
number of sunny days (i.e. cloudiness below 20%) is 30-50.
With predominantly westerly winds in Poland, the highest
precipitation occurs on western mountain slopes. In the Carpathian
and Sudeten mountains the average annual precipitation is
800-1400 mm, while in the lowland and highland regions it ranges
from 400 mm to 750 mm. The lowest precipitation levels are in
eastern Wielkopolska and in the Kujawy region. The summer
months are characterized by the most rainfall in a year, usually 2-3
times higher than in wintertime (and 4 times higher than in the
Carpathian mountains). The average number of days with snowfall
ranges from 30-40 days in western and central Poland to over 50
days in the northeast. The Karkonosze mountains have 120 days,
and the Tatras have 145 days of snowfall per year. Snow also
stays the longest in the mountains (up to 200 days) and in
northwestern Poland (90-120 days). The least number of days
with snow cover is in the western regions (40-50 days).
Temperatures
The average annual temperature in Poland ranges from 5-7°C
to 8-10°C. The hottest month of the year is July, with an average
temperature of 16-19°C. The coolest areas in July are the
mountains, where the air temperature drops as altitude increases.
The uppermost parts of the Tatra and Sudeten mountains have an
average July air temperature of just 9°C. July is also cooler in areas
adjacent to the Baltic Sea (about 16°C.). The hottest area is
central Poland, with temperatures exceeding 18°C. Hot days with
temperatures exceeding 25°C occur between May and September.
Their number in the south of Poland is relatively higher than in the
northern regions.
The coldest month in Poland is January, with northeastern regions
being the coolest part of the country. The average annual number
of days with sub-zero temperatures ranges from about 25 to 65,
while in the mountains it can be 132 days, and sometimes even
150 days. The number of days with ground frost, typically in late
spring and early autumn, ranges from 90 to 130 in the lowlands,
while in the mountains it exceeds 200.
Poland
Poland has a relatively high rate of changes in long-term weather
patterns. There is a total of six distinct seasons – in addition to
spring, summer, autumn and winter, there are the uniquely Polish
seasons of early spring (przedwioÊnie) and early winter (przedzimie). During the early spring period which lasts up to a month,
the average daily air temperature ranges from 0°C to 5°C. Spring in
Poland usually lasts about 60 days and has an average daily
temperature of 5°C to 15°C. With temperatures above 20°C,
summer in Poland begins in May and lasts up to four months,
followed by autumn, when the average temperature once again
drops to between 15°C and 5°C. With the start of the early winter
period, usually lasting about six weeks, temperatures drop below
5°C. Wintertime sees a relatively long period of cold weather and
frost – the early spring period does not begin until late February or
early March, and even then only in the mild climate areas of
northern and western Poland. Northeastern Poland is the last of
the regions to see spring, usually at the end of March.

climate, with mild winters and cool summers and high precipitation.
Severe winters and hot, dry summers are more common in eastern
parts of the country.
Winds
The winds in Poland are typically weak to moderate, with
speed ranging from 2 to 10 metres per second. Strong and very
strong winds usually occur at the seaside, causing sea storms, and
also in the mountains, where their speed often exceeds 30 m/s.
Hurricanes are uncommon in Poland, however the mountain halny
wind is notorious for uprooting trees and blowing off roofs. Halny is
a type of wind known to most mountainous regions of the world,
usually known under the general name of föhn winds. It brings
higher temperatures and lower air humidity. It is a nuisance for
most people, as it lowers psychophysical strength and causes
irritability. Another local Polish wind is the refreshing Baltic sea
breeze.

Dunes near ¸eba
Poland
Pomerania has hundreds of kilometres of coastline with sandy
beaches, thousands of clean lakes, and spectacular woodlands rich
in wildlife. The region is home to twelve landscape and three
national parks. The S∏owiƒski National Park deserves special
mention – being one of the most widespread areas of shifting
dunes in Europe. Wolin National Park on the other hand is
charming with its stunning coastline cliffs. Traces of prehistoric
human settlements can be found in the park, as well as trenches
and bunkers – remnants of World War II.

Cities and Historic Sites
The largest cities of Pomerania are: Gdaƒsk, Gdynia and Sopot
(also called Tri-City), Szczecin, Koszalin and S∏upsk. Many people
consider the 1,000 year old Gdaƒsk to be the most beautiful of
Polish cities. It is also a key heritage site. Most historic monuments
in Gdaƒsk are located in the Main Town (Main Town Hall, Artus
Palace, Uphagen House) and in the Old Town (the Great Mill, Old
Town Hall, St. Catherine’s Church). Numerous others are settled
along Gdaƒsk’s main walking street D∏uga. St. Mary’s Church in
24
Gdaƒsk is the largest medieval brick edifice in Europe. Other
important sites around Gdaƒsk include: Westerplatte, Oliwa and the
famous Gdaƒsk Shipyard. Europe’s longest wooden pier is to be
found in the popular beach resport of Sopot. The Hel Peninsula
and its largest town Hel are home to a Fishing Museum, historical
Kashubian settlements, a marine research centre of the University
of Gdaƒsk, a lighthouse, fishing port and an abundance of military
installations. In the town of ¸eba one can admire beautiful sandy
beaches and the famous shifting dunes.
Shipyard in Szczecin
Another key city in Pomerania is Malbork – the medieval capital of
the Teutonic knights order and Europe’s largest Gothic fortress. The
castle complex consists of three castles, with a total area of over
20 hectares. Some of the world’s most spectacular examples of
Gothic architecture are to be found here, including the famous High
Castle with its four wings and magnificent double-level galleries. The
western part of Pomerania is home to the town of Mi´dzyzdroje.
Its key attractions include a 300 metre pier and the famous Stars’
Promenade with hand imprints of Poland’s prominent filmmakers.
ÂwinoujÊcie – the only Polish city situated on tens of islands – has
one of the largest sea ports in Poland. The region’s westernmost
major city is Szczecin, with many splendid examples of architecture
ranging from the 13th to the 18th century.

The region consists predominantly of lowlands, with some
moraine uplands, proglacial stream valleys and channel lakes,
meadowlands, bogs and forests, with the majority of its area
covered with farmlands. The western part of Wielkopolska is
densely covered with woods and forests, with some of them being
very unique, e.g. the Noteç River Primaeval Forest. The region is
also very rich in surface water reservoirs – the lakes which create
picturesque lake districts and the Odra, Warta, Noteç and Bóbr
rivers. The local national parks and landscape reserves are the
habitat for some rare species of animals, e. g. fallow deer, raccoon
dogs, muskrats, or white eagles. One of the most precious
examples of the natural richness of the region is a 750-years-old
oak called “Chrobry”, after Poland’s first king. Its trunk is
approximately 10 meters in diameter.. The oak grows in the town
of Piotrowice.

The main cities of the region are Poznaƒ, Gorzów Wielkopolski,
Pi∏a, Zielona Góra, Kalisz (the oldest Polish city), and Konin. The
most precious historical sites include the remains of the pre-Roman
buildings dating back to the beginnings of the Polish state.
Examples of theses buildings can be found in Poznaƒ, Gniezno and
Ostrów Lednicki. The list of interesting sights also includes: the
Poznaƒ Cathedral which, among other precious exhibits, houses the
tombs of the first Polish rulers; the magnificent Fara Church, and
the Renaissance Town Hall. The Cathedral in Gniezno dates back to
the 10th century and since then it has been the worship place of
St. Wojciech (St. Adalbert); visitors to the Cathedral may admire
many precious and unique exhibits of religious arts. The town of
Zielona Góra, west of Poznaƒ, should be mentioned for its very
picturesque historic tenement houses located in the town centre, as
well as a spectacular palm house seated on the peak of the
Vineyard Hill; this town takes pride in having a long-lasting tradition
of wine making. A 13th century cathedral and historic granaries can
be seen in Gorzów Wielkopolski. The miniature town of ¸agów,
seated within a landscape park and surrounded by lakes, is known
for its very spectacular panorama with a castle as the main focus
point. The towns of Krosno Odrzaƒskie, Bytom Odrzaƒski,
Ko˝uchów and ˚agaƒ have still preserved their historic urban

Despite the fact that the region of Silesia is highly
industrialized, the nature has still been preserved here with many
beautiful spots and sights. One of them is the Lower Silesia Forest
– one of the largest in Europe and the largest in Poland forest
complex. Its landscape is enriched by postglacial hills and river
valleys. Silesia is also famous for its spectacularly picturesque
mountains – the Beskid Mountains and the Sudety with the
Karkonosze and Sto∏owe chains. In the Middle Ages, the Sudety
Mountains used to be called the Treasury of Europe due to its gold
deposits; it is said that gold still can be found there. The
Karkonosze National Park is rich in waterfalls, precipices, grassy
mountain peaks and chasms created by glaciers. The Sto∏owe
Mountains – charmingly looking mountains resembling tables – are
a perfect example of slab mountains built of layers of cracked
sandstone. One of the most enchanting places to be found among
these mountains is the B∏´dne Ska∏y maze covering an area of 20
hectares.

Guide 2008
Poland
The landscape of this region is quite varied, with lowlands,
wavy hills, and areas rich in deep, narrow and winding ravines, as
well as high mountains. In the south-east, the Roztocze Hills are
covered with forests full of mountain springs and waterfalls. The
northern part of the region abounds in lakes, rivers, canals and
bogs. In the south, the Tatra Mountains – still wild and covered in
snow – spread along the Polish border; they are the highest
mountains between the Caucasus and the Alps. Nearby lie the
Pieniny Mountains with the untamed mountainous river of Dunajec
fiercely cutting its way through the limestone rock; from those
mountains, tourists can enjoy a spectacular view of the Gorce
Mountains and the rolling slopes of the Beskid Mountains. All these
mountain chains in the region hide many caves, with the most
famous one – the Wielka Ânie˝na cave, 824 metres deep and more
than 22 kilometres long. However, the most famous caves – the
¸okietek and Ciemna caves – can be found in the Krakow and
Cz´stochowa Jura Hills, near the Ojców National Park. The entire
area of this national park is full of most astonishing rock formations
created by the Pràdnik river almost 150 million years ago. The
region also encloses the only Polish natural desert – the B∏´dowska
Desert. Although the sand temperature there can occasionally reach
almost 70ºC, this is not exactly a desert area in climatic terms. The
last sand storms and mirages were reported there in the 20th
century.

Alpine meadows in Bieszczady Mountains
Cities and Historic Sites
The main cities of the region are Krakow, Lublin, Rzeszów,
Kielce, PrzemyÊl and Tarnów, with Krakow being the most famous
and importan of all. The number of historic sights to be found in
this city is simply countless. Almost half of the Polish properties
included in the UNESCO world heritage list can be found in the
Ma∏opolskie Voivodship alone: Krakow’s Historic Centre, the
Wieliczka Salt Mine, the Auschwitz Concentration Camp, Kalwaria
Zebrzydowska: the Mannerist Architectural and Park Landscape
Complex and Pilgrimage Park, and the Wooden Churches of
Southern Poland (in Binarowa, D´bno, Lipnica Murowana and
S´kowa). Some other most significant architectural sites worth
visiting in the region include the Benedictine Monks Monastery in
Tyniec, the castles in Piaskowa Ska∏a (the Sand Rock Mountain),
Niedzica, Baranów Sandomierski, as well as local castle ruins in
Ogrodzieniec. The historic town list consists of Krakow, Lublin and
of course ZamoÊç – the Pearl of Renaissance. This list, however,
would remain incomplete if two more cities were not mentioned;
Zakopane, the most famous Polish mountain resort and winter
sport centre, and finally Kazimierz upon the Vistula River – the
town favoured by Polish artists.
The region is also a cultural melting pot, hence the presence of
numerous orthodox churches, synagogues and Jewish cemeteries;
but probably the most significant example of this cultural diversity
ever visible in the region is the well-known Jewish district of
Krakow-Kazimierz.

National Parks and Nature Reserves
Poland
The region is set mainly in flat lowlands, however, the scenery
is also rich in a variety of small moraine hills, river valleys and sand
dunes along the Vistula and Bug river valleys and on the Kurpie
Lowland. The areas in the middle Vistula river basin, between the
towns of Wyszogród and P∏ock, are basically still wild, with
numerous islands to be found on the river. These islands have
become habitats for impressive numbers of rare bird species.
Although the Mazowsze region is actually poor in forests, a number
of forest complexes can still be found here, e. g. the Kampinos,
Kurpie, Bia∏y or Kozienice Forests. The highest hills in the region
consist of some parts of the Karaków – Wieluƒ Jura Hills and the
Opoczno Hills.

Cities and Historic Sites
Undoubtedly, the largest city in the region is Warsaw, housing
the greatest number of historic sites; the most precious ones are:
two palace complexes, i.e. Wilanów and ¸azienki, and the Royal
Tract with its numerous palaces and Baroque churches. P∏ock, the
town situated north-west from the capital city of Warsaw, is famous
for its complex of buildings called “Tumski Hill” with castle ruins and
Renaissance cathedral. The monastery and Romanesque church
located in Czerwiƒsk belong to the most precious historic buildings
in the Mazowsze Region. Gothic and Renaissance castles, as well
as some preserved ruins of castles can be visited in Czersk,
Chiechanów, Liwie and Szyd∏owiec. One of the best preserved
manors in the region is the late Gothic manor and fortress in
Oporów. The castle located in Piotrków Trybunalski also served as
a fortress. In the Kurpie area, some old customs of the long-lived
folk culture and tradition are still preserved, e. g. in the towns of
Muszyniec and Kadzid∏o. The town of Wyszogród is famous for its
wooden bridge, the longest bridge of this type in Poland. The town
of Modlin, also situated in the region, takes pride in its fortress built
by Napoleon.
One of the most interesting towns in the region is ¸ódê; this is
probably the most remarkable and important place for Polish
filmmakers.. The town is said to house almost 1,000 historic
architectural sites, including Renaissance palaces, Baroque and
neo-Gothic churches, and numerous art nouveau and eclectic
apartment houses. However, ¸ódê is most famous for its old and
historic industrial buildings accompanied by the residences of their
former owners.

Geographical Location
The historical Kuyavia (Kujawy) region lies today in the
kujawsko-pomorskie voivodship, in the northernmost part of central
Poland.
Landscape
Poland
Set in the basin of the Vistula and Notec rivers, the key
characteristic of the landscape of Kuyavia is its extremely dense
water network.
Film Production
Guide 2008
The main waterways are the Vistula River and its tributaries
– Drw´ca, Brda and Wda. The western part of the region is
dominated by the Notec river. The region has approximately 1,000
post-glacial lakes with an area of over one hectare, the largest of
them being Gop∏o.
Kuyavia is a rather poorly wooded area of Poland, although it
is home to the Tuchola Forest (Bory Tucholskie) – Poland’s second
largest woodland. The Bory Tucholskie National Park and its
impressive pinewood forests are home to rare species of animals,
including the black stork – a species generally uncommon in
Poland.

Cities and Historic Sites
The main cities of Kuyavia are Bydgoszcz, Toruƒ, W∏oc∏awek
and Grudziàdz. Each of these towns has a unique blend of the old
and the contemporary. With its many remaining medieval
fortifications, Copernicus’ hometown of Toruƒ is a true reserve of
Gothic architecture. Castle ruins, historic townhouses and granaries,
St. John’s Cathedral with one of Poland’s oldest bells and baptismal
fonts. Bydgoszcz lies on the Brda River, in a densely wooded area.
The city is famous for its valuable art nouveau architecture and
Gothic churches. Numerous Teutonic castles remind us of the
medieval knights’ reign over this land. The largest of these castles
are located in Go∏ub-Dobrzyƒ and Radzyƒ Che∏miƒski. The ruins in
Radzyƒ are relatively unknown, although in terms of size they are
comparable with the famous site at Malbork. Kuyavia is also home
to a number of the earliest settlements in Poland, the most
prominent of them being Kruszwica, Biskupin, Strzelno and
Mogilno. Biskupin is an example of Iron Age fortified settlements of
the ancient Lusatian culture. Kruszwica, Strzelno and Mogilno are
home to several well-preserved examples of sacral Roman
architecture. Traditional folk architecture can be found not only at
regional ethnographic museums and heritage parks, but also in
local villages.

Geographical Location
The Warmia and Mazury administrative region lies in the
north-east part of Poland. It consist of three historical lands called
in Polish: Warmia, Mazury and PowiÊle. Due to its great natural
environment, the Region is regarded as one of the most beautiful
areas in Poland.

Guide 2008
Poland
The Warmia and Mazury Region is commonly called the land of
a thousand lakes (the Polish Lake District), although the real
number of lakes should be doubled. The largest lakes are the
Âniardwy and Mamry Lakes. The lakes, canals and rivers create
a system of water routes, extending for many kilometres,
making it possible to travel from town to town by water. The
Region is also impressively rich in woods and forests which cover
almost 30% of its area. The Mazury forests remain still the habitat
for rare species of animals, including one extremely precious rarity
– a hind with horns. Other examples include a nature reserve for
tarpan horses near Popielno and a swan nature reserve on the
¸uknajno lake, the largest reserve of its kind in Europe.

Cities and Historic Sites
The capital city of the region is Olsztyn, with a history dating
back to the 14th century. The oldest and most precious historical
buildings here include the Jerusalem Chapel, the Castle and the
Town Hall. Another attraction in the town is an astronomical
observatory. Five lakes within town boundaries are a value added
tourist attraction. The historical presence of the Teutonic Knights in
the region is heavily marked by a number of castles, some in ruins,
that can be found in places like Nidzica, Moràg, Pas∏´k, Lubawa,
Elblàg, Szymbark (one of the largest castles of the Teutonic
Knights in Mazury), Szczytno, K´trzyn, W´gorzewo, Ryn and
Barcice. Another important landmark is Grunwald, a battlefield
famous for the defeat suffered by the army of the Teutonic Knights
during one of the largest battles fought in Medieval Europe. Orneta,
a small city north of Olsztyn, is famous for its Gothic parish church
surrounded by many unique chapels; the facade of the church is
decorated with a ceramic frieze. Lidzbark Warmiƒski is one of the
most interesting towns in Warmia with its bishops’ residence castle
dating back to the 14th and 15th century. The church residence
consists of a castle and the Gothic wings, located in the lower
castle, which were reconstructed and adopted for the bishops’
residence in the 18th century. The castle is surrounded by a moat
and a wall with two towers. Some more ruins of the defence walls
and three towers can be also found inside the town itself. Two 14th
century churches are to be found in the town called Bartoszyce;
nearby lies the small town of Reszel with its well-preserved and
Oilseed rape field near Mràgowo

charming medieval urban design, a walled castle and two Gothic
bridges crossing the local river. Frombork, another interesting town
in the Region, is located by the Vistula Lagoon and is famous for its
extensive fortifications with a defence wall and two towers all
seated on the Cathedral Hill. The Copernicus Tower houses a large
Foucault pendulum – the only such structure in Poland. Other
interesting sites in the region include: a heritage park in Olsztynek;
a castle in Ostróda; a castle in Kamieniec Suski; two French
cannons manufactured in 1870 and decorating the entrance to the
Town Hall in Moràg; a renovated neo-Gothic palace, built as
a replica of Babelsberg, in a small town of Baloszyce; a similar
building constructed around the same time in Sorkwity.
The Mazury region has always had the reputation of being Poland’s
main sailing centre, with towns such as Miko∏ajki, Gi˝ycko,
Ruciane-Nida and Sztynort being the larges water sport centers.
One of the most unique sites in the region, even in the world-wide
perspective, is the Ostróda-Elblàg canal; a 19th century system of
water-powered skipways allowing ships to travel over land for the
distance of 9.6 km covering a difference in water level of 100 m.
“Wilczy Szaniec” – the former field quarters of Adolf Hitler – are still
engulfed in mystery. The site is located in Gier∏o˝, near Lidzbark
Warmiƒski. Another complex of bunkers, still ideally preserved, is
also located nearby, in the town of Mamerki; it is supposed to have
served as the field quarters for Heinrich Himmler.

Geographical Location
The Podlasie sometimes referred to as “the green lungs of
Poland” is located in the north-east part of the country comprising
the Podlasie administrative region.
Landscape
Film Production
Guide 2008
Poland
The landscape of Podlasie is particularly impressive due to its
wide-spreading forests which are protected by four national reserve
parks. The Bia∏owie˝a forest is the largest, natural forest in Europe
and namely the last natural forest in Europe with unmatched
richness of fauna and flora. The trees, some of which are 126
years old, form a habitat for the largest mammal in Europe – ˚ubr
(European bison). The Wigry lake is the most precious stone of the
local nature with its numerous islands, bays and peninsulas. The
Region also houses overflow areas of two wild rivers – Biebrza and
Narew. The Biebrza overflow is the most extensive and best
preserved natural lowland bog system in Europe, with
approximately 200 bird species, moose, beavers and otters still
living there in the wild.

Cities and Historic Sites
Akpa Polska Press
The region has no large urban aglomerations, but a number of
tiny towns and villages. The capital city of the region is Bia∏ystok,
a town developed around the manor belonging once to the noble
family of Branicki. The baroque manor of the Branicki family still
impresses with its beauty and is often called the Versailles of
Podlasie. Bia∏ystok is surrounded by the Knyszyƒski natural forest.
The Tartar Route passes nearby with its main town of Sokó∏a and
two mosques located in the villages of Bohoniki and Kruszyniany.
The historic fortified town of ¸om˝à, located by the Narew river and
in the neighbourhood of the Kurpiowski natural forest are among
the largest towns in the region. The Narew River National Park
surrounds the historic town of Tykocin. The cultural richness of the
Podlasie region can be seen in the heritage park in Nowogród,
among the picturesque hills where the Pisa river enters the Narew
river. The eastern part of the region constitutes a cultural frontier
inhabited mostly by Belarussians and Ukrainians; hence the large
number of beautiful Orthodox churches and chapels and one of
Europe's few schools of icon painting in Bielsk Podlaski. A very
interesting and modern Orthodox church can be found in the
nearby town of Hajnówka. The town of Suwa∏ki, built in a Classicist
style, is very rich in museum collections documenting the history
and culture of the ancient Jacwing Baltic tribe. Two small historic
towns of Drohiczyn and Mielnik were built upon a high bank of the
Bug river valley, as was the nearby town of Siemiatycze. The nearby
towns of Sejny and Puƒsk and their surrounding areas are
populated by a large number of Lithuanians. Finally, the town of
Osowiec is famous for its 19th century fortifications.
