Biłgoraj - Cultural Heritage Card

Biłgoraj is a powiat town in lubelskie voivodeship, with 18.000 residents. Located in the north–eastern part of Sandomierz Basin also known as Sandomierz Lowland, near a crossing of roads from Lublin to Tarnogród, Jarosław, and Przeworsk (road No. 835) towards Hungary, and the road from Zamość through Nisko (No.858) to Sandomierz and Kraków. Biłgoraj was founded on the edge of Solska Wilderness, between Czarna Łada and Biała Łada, which near the town merge into a single river – Łada, a tributary river of Tanew, which in turn is a tributary of San. In the pre-partition Poland, the town was under the administrative rule of lubelskie voivodeship.
