Dear Friends

In the middle of Poland, between Warsaw and Łódź, you will discover a charming and friendly region whose inhabitants, according to the saying: "We had entertained Kings - we'll play host to you", invite you for a trip around the area.

About the Community

Puszcza Mariańska community is situated in the south - western part of Mazovia, 50 km for Warsaw and 80 km from Łódź. This area is a part of Polish Lowland. Here Łowicko - Błoński Plain and Rawski Highland meet in the valley of the River Rawka. Puszcza Mariańska community is a western border part of Mazovia Voivodship. With the towns Żyrardów and Mszczonów and communities: Wiskitki and Radziejowice they create Żyrardów District. The area of the community amounts to 142 km2, 60.4 % of which is arable land and 32.5 % woodland. The community includes 44 villages organized in 26 hamlets and is inhabited by 8114 people (2000 y.). The biggest villages are: Bartniki, Grabina, Radziwiłłów, Puszcza Mariańska, Kamion and Budy Zaklasztorne.

How to get here

The communication system allows to get to Warsaw quickly and easily and to join the national and European communication network. The main road of the community is No 719 (Kamion - Żyrardów - Warsaw). In the vicinity of the eastern border of the region runs an express road No 8 (Warsaw - Katowice). At the northern border a junction to A2 highway (Warsaw - Berlin) is in project. You can reach an international aiport 'Okęcie' in 40 minutes by car. Two railways run through the community territory: (1) Warsaw - Vienna (Radziwiłłow station) and (2) Skierniewice - Brześć (Puszcza Mariańska station plus stops in Długokąty and Grabce).

Natural resources

The Pleistocene period left the post - glacial type of the terrain. The last quaternary continental glacier created the clay, sand and gravel layer 30 - 100 m deep. The moderate type of climate is on the verge of the Atlantic influence. A specific microclimate has been observed since the beginning of the XX c., mostly caused by woodlands and topographical and morphological features of the territory. The Rawka river which runs in the south - western part of the region is the least polluted river in the middle of Poland. The Rawka is not regulated and flows in its natural bed with strongly developed right - side basin: Chojnatka, Korabiewka, Rokita, Grabinka. Landscape and climate conditions favour recreation.

Almost half the community surface (43.8 %) is included in Bolimowski Landscape Park and thus ecologically protected. Biodiversity in this part of the country is secured by various woodland and meadow complexes. The deciduous forest predominates in the reserve. The north - western part of the object is covered with a mixed coniferous forest. There are many species of plants that have found their habitat in the reserve, rare in Central Poland, as well as the plants under legal protection. In the forest sanctuaries we can find fallow deer, deer, hazex, fox, Racoon dog, pheasants and, reintroduced recently: beaver and elk. The touristic - recreation tradition has been cultivated here for centuries. Mazovia princes and Polish kings came to the region to hunt in the medieaval ages. At the beginning of the XX c. the recreation trend flourished. There are several factors making the region attractive: -pretty and comparetively unpolluted woods and interesting farmlands; -the Rawka river with its basin and water reservoirs; -rich plant habitats, including protected plants; -easy access to Warsaw and Łódź; -The Marians order's cloister buildings; -the nearness of the most attractive places of the south - western Mazovia: Arkadia, Nieborów, Żelazowa Wola, Łowicz, Radziejowice.
