in Wielkopolska


Wielkopolska Location Wielkopolska Province is located in the basin of Warta river, in the central part of WielkopolskoKujawska Lowland. Simultaneously, it is situated on the crossroads of the main European East-West track leading from Berlin to Moskow (via Poznań, Konin and Warsaw) and the track from Prague towards the north (via Wrocław, Leszno, Poznań). As a result, the province has very favourable transportation connections with other European countries as well as the rest of the world.

Population Wielkopolska is inhabited (approximately) by 3,4 million people, which is 8,7% of the whole population of Poland.

The Capital The capital of the province is Poznań, a city with population of 600 000 people. Due to its economic, commercial, scientific, cultural and tourist significance, the city is considered the centre of western Poland. Also, Poznań has its own airport (Ławica airport) performing both national and international functions.
