Past and Present Regions of Poland (4149 words)
Although Małopolska is one of Poland's 16 administrative provinces, historically the area associated with this name is significantly larger stretching from Czestochwa in the west to Lublin in the east and encompassing the land between this line and the mountain ranges forming Poland's southern border.
Originally the province was a Slavic settlement, and Opole, the capital of the region, was the seat of the dukes of Opole of the Piast dynasty (1163-1532).
Poland's northeasternmost province, it divides Poland from Lithuania and Belarus.
