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.
