Świętokrzyskie Voivodeship is located in the central-southern part of the country. The capital city of the region – Kielce, lies halfway between the biggest Polish agglomerations – Warsaw and Krakow.

 

The region’s name comes from one of Europe’s oldest mountain ranges, the Świętokrzyskie (Holy Cross) Mountains, and its highest peak is Łysica – „the Bald Mountain” (614 m above sea level).

 

Świętokrzyskie is also an interesting example of Polish cuisine. The local farms, bakeries, fish ponds, apple and plum orchards, and apiaries offer a great journey for our palates, full of healthy and traditional flavors. 

 

In Świętokrzyskie, it is also worth tasting the local cuisine, especially zalewajka świętokrzyska (a traditional potato soup from Świętokrzyskie), dumplings with cabbage or parzybroda (a dish based on cabbage, potatoes, and bacon). 

 

Stay tuned! We are preparing recipes for zalewajka świętokrzyska and parzybroda 😋
