Lublin Powiat Page
On this page are several maps of the powiat and a link table to take you
to individual gmina pages, where you will find information about every
city, town, village and hamlet in the powiat.
On each GMINA PAGE is a list of every city, town and village in that
gmina, with information about each place, where known, and any links to
other sites if available. Remember, if you found the place in the Placefinder,
then the last number of the code that was listed with it is the number
of the gmina. This page has been divided into gmina pages to allow WEBTV
users to access them and to allow for future expansion. Click the link
below to go to the required gmina.
All places are marked on the maps at the bottom of the gmina pages.
As some browsers still can't handle Polish characters, any names with these
extra characters are repeated using the nearest equivalent English characters
in round brackets '( )'. Names in square brackets '[ ]' are older names
for that location.
These pages will be continually updated.

The Powiat of Lublin
This powiat is one of the most densely populated in the wojewodztwo,
and the city of Lublin is by far the largest city (and also the largest
Polish city east of the Vistula river). Lublin Powiat sits mainly on an
area of higher land, with only the area to the north and east of the city
being lowlands (this area generally falls within the Lubartow plain). As
a consequence, the land is generally well drained and with few areas of
wetland. Most of the powiat is dedicated to arable farming, with most farms
having a few cows as well.
Lublin Powiat contains the provincial capital of the Lubelskie province,
Lublin. Lublin, the city, has powiat/city rights of its own. The word Lubelskie
is an adjective formed from the noun 'Lublin'. Consequently you will see
many things in the city and region described using the adjective Lubelskie/Lubelska/Lubelski/etc.
This powiat has 3 rivers with the name 'Ciemięga', one in the very
north, another in the northwest and the third in the west. There may also
be streams with the same name as well, but I don't have any maps showing
such fine detail. Repetition of placenames is very common in Poland, you
may find the same name repeated several times, so be careful!
OLD WOJ.: For LDS family centre and some
internet resources, you need to know the so-called 'old wojewodztwo'. (actually,
these 'old woj' were only in existence from 1975-1998). All gmina's (districts)
were within the old Lubelskie woj, except the 2 southermost ones (Zakrzew
& Wysokie), which were in Zamojskie woj.
