The Świętokrzyskie Voivodeship is only apparently one of the smallest voivodeships in Poland. The Świętokrzyskie Mountains, Puszcza Jodłowa (the Fir Forest, tr.), relics of ancient beliefs and extraordinary monuments of culture, history and technology – are only some of the region's chief assets that signify its grandeur.
Abundance and diversity of lesuire and tourism qualities – natural and cultural ones – distinguishes the świetokrzyski region from other regions.
The Świętokrzyskie Mountains are an exceptional place on the geological map of Poland. In a relatively small area, there are rocks illustrating the geological history which formed Central Europe in the last 540 mln years.
The real gem of the świętokrzyski region are the Ancient Mines of Striped Flint in Krzemionki near Ostrowiec Świętokrzyski – a monument whose value matches megalithic Stonehenge and is one of the greatest objects of its kind in Europe.
The region can also offer attractive sanatoria and spa and wellness services (in the towns of Busko-Zdrój and Solec-Zdrój). Busko- Zdrój is one of the major Polish health resorts and the waters drawn there are some of the rarest to find anywhere else (sulphuric and iodide-bromide). They are used for bathing or drinking cures. Their medical properties put Busko among unique health resorts in Europe.
Climate conditions and gardening traditions have contributed to the fact that orchard production has become the pride of the region and apples the main export product. Every fourth Polish apple comes from the świętokrzyski region and those from the Sandomierz region, due to their qualities, have been added to the EU regional products list.
Świętokrzyskie is a full of mystical energy, magical place with unique natural values, rich history and outstanding attractions. It is ideal for holidays as well as children and teenagers' education.
During the regional week for the Świętokrzyskie Voivodeship, new business opportunities shall be presented based on the two key sectors of the region: modern agriculture and food processing and health and spa tourism. Two industry conferences and B2B meetings as well as tasting of the świętokrzyskie foods and presentation of spa treatments are on the agenda. Moreover, the świętokrzyskie landscapes photos and striped flint, which is characteristic for the region, shall be on display.
