The Lublin Region

The European Union and the Lublin Region 

From 2007, the Lublin Voivodeship has effectively used EU funds. We have invested financial support from the EU budget in projects that support the economy, create new jobs, and improve the quality of life of the citizens of the region.

In December 2012, Lublin's airport was opened. This investment was worth close to 477 million zł. Today, the airport has seven regular connections (not to mention charter flights). Two new connections were announced this year: Milan and Rome.

The Puławy Science-Technology Park. The investment cost 77 million zł of which 85% was covered by EU funds. The Puławy Science-Technology Park offers a great place for academic, university, and business institutions to cooperate. It is the home to 12 businesses and soon the opening of modern laboratories will attract new entrepreneurs. 

Highways S17 and S12. The first part of the communications backbone of the Lublin region has already been created, reducing travel time to Warsaw. The construction of other parts has begun - tenders have been announced. The government also guaranteed the funds to build the S19, connecting Lublin and Rzeszów. 

Thanks to the National Program for the Reconstruction of Local Roads, 750km of roads have been modernized in our region's communes and districts. Financial sources from Poland's budget: 250 million zł.

Lublin is growing more and more beautiful. Over the past few years, the capital of the region has experienced an investment boom. Thanks to EU funds, 2014 will mark the completion of the biggest road investment in the history of Lublin: the extension of Solidarity Avenue. This investment is worth 350 million zł.

We have invested hundreds of millions of złoty into the development of tourism and culture. One example is the modernization of the Old Theater in Lublin. This investment, worth 25 million zł, was in part financed by the European Fund for Regional Development.
