Lying at the western border of Poland, Lubuskie is associated primarily with viticulture and wine production. However, in addition to wine-making traditions, the region also offers numerous lakes and rivers, the UNESCO-listed Muskau Park or military monuments.
The voivodship authorities are based in Gorzów Wielkopolski and Zielona Góra. In Gorzów, many monuments from the 17th to 19th century have been preserved, but the most valuable is the much earlier medieval cathedral. Zielona Góra has a nice old town and the famous Palm House standing on a hill overgrown with vineyards.
Winery is one of the distinguishing features of the region on a national scale. Along the Oder there are several dozen vineyards connected by a wine trail. The capital of winemaking is Zielona Góra, where the annual Grape Harvest week takes place. There is also a wine museum here.
The province has a UNESCO-listed Mużakowski Park, designed in the 19th century in a romantic style. Its extension is the Muskau Arch geopark with colorful lakes and geological attractions.
From a natural point of view, the Warta Mouth National Park, which is a paradise for ornithologists, presents great values. In the province there are also about 500 lakes where you can practice water tourism.
Very interesting are also the military monuments of the region, which include the Kostrzyn fortress and the Międzyrzecki Fortified Region built by the Germans in 1934-1944 with dozens of bunkers, shelters and fences.
