Churches of the Polish Spisz Region - Zabytek.pl
Within the borders of the Republic of Poland, a little less than half of Zamagurie, commonly called Polish Spisz, is located. Situated in the picturesque area at the foot of the Tatra Mountains, it is a region of individual ethnographic features and an interesting history. This very area, covering 13 villages, with an overwhelming majority of Polish population, was granted to Poland in 1920 by decision of the Council of Ambassadors. The rest of the region was incorporated into Czechoslovakia. Until World War I, the whole territory belonged to Hungary, and it was included into the court district of Stara Wieś. The area is approx. 200 km2 in size and is inhabited by a few thousand people. It is a very interesting region both in landscape as well as cultural terms.
