The roots of an ancient and probably sacred oak taken out of the top of the Krak Mound during the archeological excavations in 1938. The tree is believed to have been felled in the 10th. century in the course of the Christianization drive. Having set the age of the oak at about 300 years, the mound itself was dated back to 7th/8th c. AD.





unfortunately the commies ploughed through the area with the construction of a motorway...

the old road...






the Austrian barracks

The 1951 Polish–Soviet territorial exchange or Polish-Soviet border adjustment treaty of 1951 was a border adjustments signed in Moscow between the People's Republic of Poland and the Soviet Union regarding roughly 480 km2 (185 sq mi) of land, along their mutual border. The exchange was made to the decisive economic benefit of the Soviet Union due to rich deposits of coal given up by Poland; discovered already well before World War II. Within eight years following the agreement, the Soviets built four large coal mines there with the total mining capacity of 15 million ton annually.

Poland gave up part of the Lublin Voivodship, with the cities of Bełz, Uhnów, Krystynopol and Waręż.

Church in Uhnow (built in 1695)




Church in Warez (built in 1688-1693)


Potocki Palace in Krystynopol (built in 1756-1762)


Fortunately, some buildings are well preserved (like these in Belz, see below)


PS. I didn't know where to add that interesting fact...The annual coal production in the largest in Poland Bełchatów Coal Mine is around 33 million tonnes (over 50% of Poland's total coal production).
