Location and history

Bydgoszcz is located in the Kuyavian-Pomeranian region. It is the largest city in the county and seat of the county administration as well as the county governor. It is one of the largest cities in Poland (no. 8 in terms of population and no. 10 in terms of city area). Bydgoszcz is located on both sides of the Brda River, just before its exit in Wisła. The distance to Gdańsk to the northeast is 170 km, while 285 km to the southeast to Warsaw. Around the city, but especially to the south of it, extends a large complex of woodlands, called Puszcza Bydgoska. In the southern part of Bydgoszcz (about 3 km from the city center) there is an airport with connections to Warsaw and abroad: England, Ireland and Germany. There is also a river port in town. There are good rail and highway connections to all parts of the country.
The town was granted market town rights in 1346, but its history dates back at least 200 years, even back to about 1038, if you take the building of a fortress in Wyszogród at Wisła (today within Bydgoszcz’ urban area) as a starting point.
