Podlaskie Voivodeship tempts with the unspoiled nature of the Białowieża Forest, fancifully meandering rivers, backwaters and picturesque lakes creating a romantic landscape. It is a perfect space for those who love active recreation – canoeing enthusiasts, cyclists, hikers and even skiers who can ski in the Szelment snow park. A camping or a campsite in Podlasie is also a great choice for people who just want to relax in close contact with nature.
Located in north-eastern Poland, Podlaskie Voivodeship is distinguished by a very varied landscape – it lies in the Podlasie Lowlands, the Suwałki Lakeland and the Masovian Lowlands. The voivodeship borders in the east with Belarus, in the north with Lithuania and with the following voivodeships: Lublin Voivodeship in the south, Masovian Voivodeship in the southwest and Warmian-Masurian Voivodeship in the northwest. The region is very diverse in terms of ethnic and culture – for centuries, this area has been inhabited by Belarusians, Lithuanians, Tatars, Russians, Ukrainians, Roma and Jews alongside the Polish population. The diversity of Podlasie also manifests itself in nature – the local vast forests and large primeval forests: Białowieża, Augustów, Knyszyn and Kurpiowska hide a unique, rich flora and fauna.
Not only nature lovers will appreciate holidays in Podlasie – there will also be attractions for those who want to relax in the city. The largest city of Podlaskie Voivodeship is Białystok, where a number of interesting tourist routes have been marked, such as Jewish Heritage Trail, Architecture of the PRL Trail, Branicki Family Trail, Wooden Architecture Trail, Białystok Fabricants Trail and many others. Everyone will find something for himself. It is also worth visiting the market square in Białystok, where the most important historic buildings are located, such as the town hall, the building of the former tavern and the cathedral complex.
