Poland current voivodeships (provinces) are largely based on the country historic regions, whereas those of the past two decades (to 1998) had been centred on and named for individual cities as on Poland map. The new units range in area from less than 10,000 square kilometres (3,900 sq mi) for Opole Voivodeship to more than 35,000 square kilometres (14,000 sq mi) for Masovian Voivodeship. Administrative authority at voivodeship level is shared between a government-appointed voivode (governor), an elected regional assembly (sejmik) and an executive elected by that assembly.

Until World War II, Poland was a religiously diverse society, in which substantial Jewish, Protestant and Christian Orthodox minorities coexisted with a Roman Catholic majority. As a result of the Holocaust and the post–World War II flight and expulsion of German and Ukrainian populations, Poland has become overwhelmingly Roman Catholic as its mentioned in Poland on map. In 2007, 88.4% of the population belonged to the Catholic Church. Though rates of religious observance are lower, at 52% to 60%, Poland remains one of the most devoutly religious countries in Europe.
Poland is divided in 16 provinces or Voivodeships (województwa, singular - województwo) as you can see in Poland on map; Lower Silesia, Kuyavia-Pomerania, Łódź, Lubelskie, Lubusz, Lesser Poland, Masovia, Opole, Subcarpathia, Podlaskie, Pomerania, Silesia, Świętokrzyskie, Warmia-Masuria, Greater Poland, and West Pomerania.
Poland has instituted freedom of press since the fall of communism, a system under which the media was heavily politically controlled and censored (see Poland on map). However, public TV and radio are still regulated by the government, this is exercised through an agency called Krajowa Rada Radiofonii i Telewizji (The National Radio and Television Committee), which is similar to television regulatory commissions in other developed nations.

Hospitals in Poland are organised according to the regional administrative structure, resultantly most towns have their own hospital (Szpital Miejski). Larger and more specialised medical complexes tend only to be found in major cities, with some even more specialised units located only in the capital, Warsaw. However, all voivodeships have their own general hospital (most have more than one) as its shown in the detailed map of Poland, all of which are obliged to have a trauma centre; these types of hospital, which are able to deal with almost all medical problems are called 'regional hospitals' (Szpital Wojewódzki).
There are currently 18 fully accredited traditional universities in Poland as its mentioned in the detailed map of Poland, these are then further supplemented by 20 technical universities, nine independent medical universities and five universities for the study of economics. In addition to these institutions there are then nine agricultural academies, three pedagogical universities, a theological academy and three maritime service universities. Poland long history of promoting the arts has led to the establishment of a number of higher educational institutes dedicated to the teaching of the arts. Amongst these are the seven higher state academies of music.
Poland has a great, long standing tradition of tolerance towards minorities, as well as absence of discrimination on the grounds of religion, nationality or race. It has a high level of gender equality, promotes disability rights movement and promotes equality as you can see in the detailed map of Poland.

Map of Northern Poland shows the North part of the country Poland. Northern Poland map will allow you to easily explore areas of the North of Poland in Europe. The map of Northern Poland is downloadable in PDF, printable and free.
The greatest asset of Northern Poland is its location on the Baltic Sea as its shown in the map of Northern Poland, which substantially determines the nature of the local economy. In the Western Pomerania, the Pomerania and the Kujawsko-Pomorskie Voivodeships, the major cities, which are particularly attractive in investment terms, are Szczecin, Kołobrzeg, the Tricity, i.e. Gdańsk, Gdynia and Sopot, as well as Toruń and Bydgoszcz.
Even in a country accustomed to shifting borders, northern Poland presents an unusually tortuous historical puzzle. Successively the domain of the Teutonic Order, Hansa merchants and the Prussians, it is only in the last seventy years that the region has become definitively Polish. The conurbation of Gdańsk, Sopot and Gdynia known as the Tri-City, lines the Baltic coast with its dramatic shipyards and sandy beaches, while highlights inland include the medieval centres of Malbork and Toruń as its mentioned in the map of Northern Poland. Meanwhile the northeastern region of Mazury, with its seemingly endless networks of lakes and rivers, is a natural wonderland for kayakers and outdoor enthusiasts. Many of the area bucolic villages, with their wooden churches and folk traditions, appear to have barely changed since the nineteenth century.
The economy of Northern Poland is substantially based on the maritime industry (repair shipyards and shipbuilding yards specialising in the production of offshore vessels and elements for the production of renewable energy), the petroleum industry, the food industry (e.g. related to fishing and fish processing), the metals and machine industry, the wood and furniture industry, the construction industry, as well as on industrial automation and the power industry. Because of its diversified landscape, Northern Poland offers favourable conditions for cultural and active tourism. Particularly valuable places include national parks: the Woliński, the Słowiński and the Bory Tucholskie National Parks as you can see in the map of Northern Poland. Interesting sensations will also be experienced when visiting the Hel Peninsula, the Vistula Spit and Żuławy.

Marked by the Tatra (called Tatry locally) Mountains that form the country southern border with Slovakia, Southern Poland consists of three Viovodships (Provinces): Opole, Silesian and Lesser Poland (Malopolska) as its mentioned in the map of Southern Poland. Many beautiful medieval castles are still found in the region, including Moszna in Opole and the massive 400-room Ksiaz in Silesia. Lesser Poland is home to bustling Krakow, the country third-largest city. The region mountains and green areas are perfect for outdoor adventure.
Southern Poland attracts more visitors than any other region in the country, and its appeal is clear from a glance at the map. The Tatra Mountains bordering Slovakia are the most spectacular in the country, snowcapped for much of the year and markedly alpine in feel. The former royal capital of Kraków is an architectural gem and the country intellectual heart. Pope John Paul II was archbishop here until his election in 1978, but equally important are the city Jewish roots: before the Holocaust, this was one of Europe most vibrant Jewish centres. This multicultural past echoes in the old district of Kazimierz, and its culmination is starkly enshrined at the death camps of Auschwitz-Birkenau, 50km west of the city as its shown in the map of Southern Poland.
Southern Poland is cut with mountains, at the foot of which there are the largest metropolises in Poland – Cracow and Katowice as you can see in the map of Southern Poland. On the one hand, this region is a real paradise for enthusiasts of mountain hiking and climbing, and, on the other hand, the industrial heart of Poland. The excellent communications and connections with other parts of the country makes Southern Poland very popular among investors.
