The largest province of Poland, it is home to its capital and largest city – Warsaw. It is situated in the central Poland with Warsaw right in the middle. Apart from the historical region of Masovia, the administrative division encompasses more lands, especially of Podlachia. Significant for Polish history, it was a seat of Polish Kings since the beginning of the 17th Century. The typical Masovian landscape consists of large plains with sandy roads lined with willows. Masovia is also a home of the most famous Polish composer, Fryderyk Chopin, who is believed to have drawn inspiration from the local nature and folklore. The region offers several pleasant little towns for a one-day trip while staying in Warsaw and a large national park, located surprisingly close to the capital.
