With the population of nearly 300,000, Bialystok is the largest city in the north-east part of Poland and is the capital city of Podlaskie voivodeship. It acts as an administrative, economic, scientific, and cultural centre of this part of the country, known as the “Green Lungs” of Poland due to its unique ecological values.

The location of the city in a clean region that is full of tourist attractions as well as the rich infrastructure make Bialystok and its surroundings a place which is attractive in terms of living and relaxing, as well as a touristic destination.

Over the last few years, Bialystok has been undergoing an extremely dynamic transformation, thus becoming a more and more attractive metropolis offering state-of-the-art communication solutions as well as modernised, functional, and people-friendly city spaces. Simultaneously, in search of history, former glory is being restored to old monuments.

Bialystok is a clean and green city, where people can enjoy an increasingly good quality of life, feel safe and have wide prospects for comprehensive development.
