Welcome to the City of Treasures!
Środa Śląska is one of the oldest urban centres in Poland (Środa Śląska law, dated 1235 – a variant of Magdeburg law). The city with a characteristic central market square was founded in the twelfth century, in the close vicinity of a road being part of the trade route joining Eastern and Western Europe, and Środa Śląska law became the legal model for over 132 Silesian cities. The region of Środa Śląska is famous for its royal gems known as „The Środa Treasure”.
The urban-rural municipality of Środa Śląska is located in the centre of Lower Silesia, at the crossroads of important transportation routes, such as: the national road No. 94 (Korczowa – Wrocław – Jędrzychowice) and regional road No. 346 (Środa Śląska – Kąty Wrocławskie – Oława). The national road No. 94 that crosses the municipality, the proximity of Wrocław, the rail connections and the convenient access to the A4 motorway (E-40 Dresden – Wrocław – Kiev) make for its easy and swift accessibility from each direction. The connection with the E-30 railway line (Wrocław – Zgorzelec – Dresden) is an additional advantage of the municipality.
Środa Śląska municipality covers the area of 214.93 square kilometres. Over 19,000 people live here, of whom 9,000 in the city itself. The settlement network consists of 27 towns which are evenly spread around the city which is now not only the seat of the municipality authorities, but also home to almost 50,000 residents of Środa Śląska district.
The following towns are partners of Środa Śląska Municipality:
– Kamyanka Buzka (Ukraine),
– Saterland (Germany),
– Štěpánov (the Czech Republic).

Attractive and worth living in
Arguments for living in the municipality are i.a. low real property prices and educational base, whose constant modernization is one of the priorities of the local government. A modern nursery operates in Środa Śląska, and the municipality is ranked high in Wrocław Agglomeration with regard to the provision of preschool admissions. Children and youth have an opportunity to continue their education at further stages of education. An additional convenience is the launch of communal public transport using electric vehicles, which took place in January 2018.
