Doing business in Częstochowa
Guide for the investors
Częstochowa is situated in the Upper Warta River Valley in South-Central Poland, on the borders of three geographic macro regions: the Krakow-Częstochowa Highlands, Silesian Highlands and the Mid-Poland Lowland. Historically, it belongs to Western Lesser Poland (Małopolska), but as a result of the 1999 administrative reform it was included in the Silesian Province.
The city is an important node of the Pan-European transport corridor connecting Scandinavia to the Mediterranean Region.
Częstochowa is also an important rail node situated on the historic Warsaw-Vienna Railway system, which constitutes an important element of the railway system of Upper Silesia – one of the biggest in Europe.
The convenient location makes Częstochowa the centre of the biggest market in Central and Eastern Europe. Five out of 15 biggest Polish agglomerations are situated within a 120-kilometre radius from the city, including the most urbanized area on the continent - the Silesian conurbation with a population of 4.6 million. The arterial roads crossing the city ensure easy access to almost 10 million potential customers.
