Publications on opolskie voivodship

The most important distinction of the Opole voivodship is the resourcefulness of its residents. The region lays in the south-west of Poland in the river Odra’s catchment area, in the Śląsk Depression. Opole is a multi-cultural region. Over many generations the people here have kept to their traditions, they often originate from other regions and today all work together for the advancement of their region of Poland. Industry and agriculture are two significant pillars of the region’s economy. There are many different branches of industry developing here, the most important of which are: the food industry, fuel and energy, chemicals, cement and lime, electro-mechanical, foundries and metallurgy and furniture. Opole is among the voivodships most favoured by foreign capital in Poland. The Opole countryside is today very prosperous; it’s very beautiful and has a rich cultural and business environment. The excellent climate and natural environment have also enabled tourism to develop here. Due to the varied nature of the countryside it’s attractive for tourists both in the summer and winter.
