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,
while places marked in red are also marked on the map at the bottom of
this page. 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.
Map of Gminy in RYKI Powiat
The Powiat of Ryki
Ryki is in the northwest of the Lubelskie province,
bordering the Mazovian province. It is located at the point where the Wieprz
river valley joins that of the Wisla (Vistula), among the hills of the
Zelechow Upland. It covers an area of 616 sq.km, and has a population of
64,000 people. The postal codes for this powiat are different from the
rest of the province as it was part of Mazovia until 1975. As the capital
of Mazovia is Warsaw, there was much moaning after 1975 in Ryki by the
sudden drop in the quality of life with the loss of favours associated
with being part of the capitals province.
Below is a list of every city, town and village in this powiat, with
information about each place, where known, and any links to other sites
if available. This page will be continually updated.
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.
