Six photographs taken this very week of the small town of Lubniewice, Lubuskie, Poland.
Lubniewice (Königswalde) is one of the smallest towns in the whole of Poland with a population of less than 1,900 people. The Lubniewice area is blessed with three beautiful lakes with clean water and lots of fish, mushroom and wildlife-filled forests, interesting architecture, a sandy beach, and several good restaurants and bars. It is located in the county of Sulecin County in the Lubuskie Voivodeship, of western Poland, which is itself a most picturesque and unspoilt part of the country. Until 1945, the town was called Konigswalde and part of the German province of East Brandenburg. However, following the Polish / German border changes brought by the Oder-Neisse line agreement, Lubniewice, and indeed the whole region, became part of the Republic of Poland and the German population expelled.
Lubniewice is located about 28 kms south of the large city of Gorzów Wielkopolski, 50 kms from the Polish / German border crossing in Kostrzyn, and 15 kms north-west of Sulecin.
Selected towns and cities within 100 kms of Lubniewice: Berlin, Frankfurt Oder, Gorzow; Miedzyrzecz, Poznan, Skwierzyna, Szczecin, Wolsztyn, Zielona Gora.
