To Specialist - english version Dla Specjalistów - wersja polska

article authors: Kazimierz Popławski, Joanna Felicja Bilska; translator: Paulina Borowska

Welcome to the site of, the first service comprehensively describing the region of north-eastern Poland in English.

After the Polish accession to the European Union, the boarders were opened and an increase in tourist activity followed. We dedicate the sites of our service mostly to the travellers interested in exploring the still unknown but unique Białystok`s and Podlasie region`s routes.

At the end of his life, Jean Monnet, one of the fathers of the European Union confessed that if he had been to start the forming of the United Europe once again, he would have started from culture. We decided to follow this path and rediscover the values and the beauty of "small motherlands". Our aim is to create the image of a modern region, bravely stepping into the future, while sharing and taking care of our cultural and natural heritage at the same time.

On our site we present the history of our region along with the most interesting tourist attractions. We provide access to the database of the current events, culture institutions and the tourist infrastructure of Białystok and Podlaskie Voivodship. The remote corners of the Polish frontier region called "kresy" are additionally presented in our photo gallery.

We would like our readers to co-decide about the directions of development and the shape of our service That`s why we heartily invite everyone to co-operation. The most interesting ideas will surely be implemented.

Wishing you the most pleasant read,

The new tourist service
