Lubusz Voivodeship

Lubuskie is a province in western Poland.

History

The province's name recalls the historic Lubusz Land (germ. Lebuser Land), although part of the voivodeship in fact belongs to the historic region of Silesia. For centuries the area on the Central Odra belonged to different counties. The influences of Polish, German and Czech culture mixed here.

Get in

There is no international airport in the Lubusz Voivodeship. The nearest international airports are Poznań's Poznań-Ławica Airport [1] (POZ), Wrocław's Copernicus Airport [2] (WRO) and Szczecin's Szczecin-Goleniów Airport [3] (SZZ). Berlin-Tegel (TXL) or Berlin-Schönefeld (SXF) in Germany might also be a good choice for western Poland, as many international connections are available from there.

The Berlin-Warsaw Eurocity trains make several stops in Lubusz Voivodeship, providing easy connections to other major European train routes.
